Our Story
OUR STORY

Hiking Texas is dedicated to helping adventure seekers find the best hiking, camping and lodging options across the Lone Star State. Find the best spots to hike, camp, relax, and experience the Texas outdoors — all with expert advice, incredible photography, travel resources, stories and destination guides.

Not long ago, we saw an opportunity to fill the gaps where other resources were found to be lacking — searches for new trails were tedious, content was limited (and mediocre at best), and very few sites offered information outside of single activities — and we knew we could provide better. In late 2016, the Hiking Texas community was born on Instagram as a digital trail guide that is continually updated by our community and contributors, showing current trail conditions, trail reviews, camping options, and of course, inspirational photos from the trails.

Soon, we want to expand Hiking Texas to include camping and lodging resources, travel recommendations and more, providing a more comprehensive experience for outdoor enthusiasts at every stage of their travel journey, from inspiration and trip planning to participating in local adventures and experiences.

OUR MISSION

WE BUILT HIKING TEXAS TO MAKE THE TEXAS OUTDOORS MORE ACCESSIBLE FOR EVERYONE.

We want to spread the spirit of adventure — whether down the street or across the state — by inspiring others to discover, explore, and share their favorite adventures and local stomping grounds. We strongly believe in leaving the world better than we found it, and we want to help make a difference through the community we create and the things we make. We also believe it is our responsibility to promote, protect, and preserve public lands for all. Read more about our commitment to conservation.
