What are the best winter hikes in Texas?
If you enjoy visiting the Palo Duro Canyon during summertime, just wait until you see it blanketed in snow. The stark contrast between the red rock landscape and the winter wonderland covering it is truly a sight to see. This is the most popular trail in Palo Duro Canyon State Park, spanning just under six miles and suitable for kids and pets. Some other winter hikes in Texas we adore are the Chihuahuan Desert Nature Trail, Enchanted Rock State Natural Area Summit Trail, Gorman Falls Trail at Colorado Bend State Park, Barton Creek Greenbelt, and McKittrick Canyon Nature Trail at Guadalupe Mountains National Park.
What are some great winter getaways in Texas?
The second largest canyon in America after the Grand, Palo Duro Canyon is an epic Panhandle destination that certainly lives up to Texas’ big reputation — and it’s absolutely breathtaking during the quiet peacefulness of winter. A 120-mile gash in the earth that plunges almost 1,000 feet, people come to hike, bike, and ride horses along the almost 90 miles of trails in the state park. Offset the exertion by hunkering down at one of the chic cabins at Dove’s Rest; with a superb view out across the canyon proper, each has a propane grill and fire pit so you can BBQ each night under the stars.
Cedar Vista-Rustic Luxury Cabin is another amazing winter retreat in Texas; this luxury cabin allows guests to revel in the state’s natural splendor. Inside this two-bedroom, two-bathroom rental, no expenses have been spared, from the gourmet kitchen and high-end appliances to the master bedroom’s native rock shower and king-sized bed. Outdoors, the cabin pays homage to Texas in the very best way, with an expansive pavilion, fire pit, large porch, and private hot tub, all of which overlook the big, beautiful Lone Star State countryside.
Finally, there’s no question that Texas Wine Country is one of the most beautiful places in the state — and the country. A 14,000 square-mile stretch with more than 30 wineries, it’s the second-largest wine region in America after Napa. Within this resplendent region, Fredericksburg makes a perfect “home base,” and the Hoffman Haus Day Spa is the perfect accommodation. This German-style B&B is pure rustic luxury — secluded, serene, and blissfully simple — all in the beautiful hills of central Texas… especially in the wintertime!
