These overnight and (optional) 3-day treks take place on private land in the Davis Mountains, near Fort Davis, in Texas’s Chihuahuan Desert. We’ll travel the same Big Bend region of West Texas as the Beale Expedition of 1857. While the US military scouted fort locations and searched this area for better supply routes to the US/Mexican border, present-day treks combine desert scenery, history and ecology with the colorful part the camels played in settling the West.
This tour is a camel-assisted trek with camels carrying all the gear. (Treks are designed for some riding and some hiking.) Participants will help load, unload and work the camels. Hiking is fairly easy, over cattle trails, ranch roads and creek beds. Endless photo opportunities await you in the rugged, but beautiful Big Bend region of Texas. We travel ranch roads, cattle trails, creek beds and mountain passes. Guests must be able to hike between 5 and 10 miles per day over varied terrain.
