Outdoor Recreation in Texas

It holds to reason that a state as big and diverse as Texas would be a good destination for outdoor journeys. Texas has hundreds of state parks readily available for lovers of fresh air and nature. McCurtain County is home to several of them.

McCurtain County consists of some of the most beautiful land in the area. It is home to the oldest stands of pine anywhere in the world. It is on Life Magazine's list of the "top places to visit during your lifetime." The county is covered with trails for all skill levels, which range in length from one to 16 miles. Terrain also differs in intensity, from gentle, rolling flatlands to rugged mountain climbs. The paths aren't just limited to hikers either. Many of them are available to mountain bikers, and the numerous trails keep hikers and bikers apart.

Three of the best parks to go to in this region are Inks Lake, Garner, and Beaver's Bend. Beaver's Bend, especially, is a good park for hiking and spending time. There are lodges readily available for rent for the less adventurous hiker, and many have a good view of the lake. Beaver's Bend is three hours away from Dallas in southwest Oklahoma, but is well worth the time it takes to get there, especially if you enjoy hiking diversity. The dried up river beds, rocky ridges and deep lush underbrush make for a thrilling trekking adventure.
