Beyond the railroad tracks from Marathon's Gage Hotel, is a lovely spot to rest, watch birds, and enjoy the quiet...Gage Gardens. The public is invited to enjoy this spot on the Far West Texas Wildlife Trail. Spring is slow to join us this year, but there are signs of it everywhere in the Gardens.
Built in 1927, the Gage Hotel is one of the most distinguished historic hotels in the region, and it is also one of our Texas Mountain Trail cycle-friendly properties. Cycle-friendly features include: oversized rooms for stowing bikes; pool/fitness center/spa services; daily pasta and vegetarian dishes, organic salad ingredients grown in garden onsite; snacks/packed meals and emergency bike repair at French Co. Grocer around the corner. Very safe location, gateway to Big Bend National Park. The Hotel and the Gardens are locations on the "Ride to the Post Heritage Bike Route," an easy ride for families!
