...or rather taking a break from trailrunning to contemplate the beautiful view!
Fort Davis National Historic Site and the Davis Mountains State Park are connected by a hiking trail, that also provides the trail runner with a challenging opportunity. We headed up the Hospital Canyon Trail on the Fort side, which connects to the state park's trail on the top of the mountain. You can run (or hike) up rocky inclines, through swaths of grasses, by cacti, through wooded areas, and get treated to beautiful vistas of the land below.
Here's a link to trail maps for the state park. For regional hiking information, visit: www.texasmountaintrail.com/hike
