What a beautiful hike in a little bit of rainy weather. There were views all around, including sights of the Indian Lodge far off in the canyon. A short climb to the Keesey Canyon Overlook was very rewarding with scenic views of the entire area. I would like to return to the Davis Mountains State Park for some more hikes in the future. Here is a link to the Trail Map in case you are curious about the hikes available here.
Skyline Drive Trail is a scenic hike along the top of a ridge in the Davis Mountains State Park. The high point on this approximately 2.6 mile hike is the Keesey Canyon Overlook, with grand views of the entire park and beyond. The Overlook Shelter at the far East end of the trail has a beautiful “picture window” with views of the city of Fort Davis and Hospital Canyon. There are also several picnic spots here if you prefer to just sit and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Davis Mountains.
The Davis Mountains State Park is a pretty park located just outside Fort Davis, Texas. There are some scenic hikes to take and camping spots if you wish to camp. There is a hotel in the park called Indian Lodge that has 39 rooms, a restaurant, and a swimming pool. As you can see, it has some nice views of the valley in the park.
