Perfect for family and friends to enjoy the outdoors and the New Year together. Join in this growing national "get outdoors" tradition as we hike on New Year's Day.
Hikes are self-guided. Explore 3+ miles of trails:
- Our 1/2 mile Canyon Floor Trail will feature a seasonally appropriate nature-based StoryWalk(r)** suitable for children.
- Our classic West Loop Trail offers a challenge with change in elevation and beautiful views.
- Hike deeper into the canyon on our newest "Dogwood Trail" to leave behind the sound of traffic and enjoy a unique area offering solitude in southwest Dallas County.
After your hike, stop in our Visitor Center gift shop to receive a commemorative 2023 First Day Hike sticker. We'll also offer a special one-day sale in our gift shop.
Prefer to stay warm indoors? Enjoy the view from our accessible indoor Canyon View area. There's a good chance you'll spot a few birds supplementing their limited winter food sources with birdseed right outside the windows.
We offer "price your own" admission. While no fee is required for entry, please note that operational and trail maintenance expenses rely on support from our visitors. Please consider either making a donation in person, on our website, or by selecting a fee of our choice when making your reservation.
Making a reservation gives us the opportunity to contact you personally to let you know about unexpected trail closures in advance when possible. We also limit the number of entries per day in an effort to maintain a peaceful place of respite. Your reservation guarantees entry.* Once we meet our daily capacity, visitors without reservations may be turned away.
