Fort Worth Hiking Trails

It's summer and time to get out of the house! I'm always looking for things to do outside and after a little research I found some hiking trails that I can't wait to check out.

I stumbled on the website Your Guide to the Outdoors and looked at what they had on Fort Worth. There are a bunch of hiking trails all around us! You'd think I would know that as a native, but alas we get lazy.

Click here for some information on a bike route that takes you through historical Fort Worth. For other hiking trails and maps click here.

Lake Mineral Wells Trail
My roommate in college used to spend weekends hiking and camping at Lake Mineral Wells State Park (click name). She grew up in New Mexico and Canada where the outdoors are appreciated a little more. She told me how beautiful it was and that I should check it out. Now that my life is settling down a little bit, I think I will.

The Fort Worth Nature Center looks like a promising stop!  I have to thank Fort Worth Hole in the Wall for the tip. So nice of them. Pssst ... it may be worth stopping in the FW Nature Center this weekend for the center's canoe tour May 28, or the Fitness Walk guided tour through nature on May 29.
