Ring in the New Year right with a First Day Hike! Join our rangers for a brisk, evening hike on the CCC and Triassic Trails right as the sun sets over the rim of the canyon!

Participants will be hiking along the CCC and Triassic Trails (Approximately 1 mile one way) for around 1 hour as we share stories of the tradition of First Day Hikes and of the significance of starting fresh as the calendar turns to a new year. 

Things You Should Know: 

  • Meet: At the Triassic Trailhead. It’ll be on your right, just before the hill leading into the canyon. Alternative parking will be available at the Visitor Center/Coronado Lodge and Overlook parking lot. A free shuttle will be provided to and from the Triassic Trailhead for those parked at the Visitor Center/Coronado Lodge and Overlook parking lot.
  • Bring: Comfortable walking/hiking shoes or boots (they will get sandy), 1 liter of water per person per mile, and weather appropriate clothing (jackets, etc.). You may also want to bring a Headlamp/Flashlight for after sunset.
  • Cost: Included with admission to the park. Park admission is free with a Texas State Park Pass(purchased before event).

Remember to pay with a self-service envelope at Headquarters or make a day use reservation before arriving!

This program may be cancelled due to weather.

No Pre-registration required.
