The West Texas Chapters

Exploring a state the size of a country can be overwhelming, but in its thousands of miles Texas hides some of the most beautiful, wild, and wonderful hiking experiences. Rugged deserts, treacherous canyons, freezing ancient rivers, rolling sand dunes, forgotten forests and high desert peaks are just a few of the backpacking options available to anyone willing to explore West Texas. While hiking and driving through the Lone Star State, let the sense of the true Wild West wash over you as you enjoy the simple lifestyle and lovely manners of those who inhabit the Rio Valley. Texas has it all, and its waiting to be explored.
