Settled quietly in the Davis Mountains, Davis Mountain State Park which is located in Jeff Davis County, Texas, has become a favorite place for some tourists who need a lonely quality time, stay away from whatever stressful things they get from the city.

Being in a park between 5,000 or 6,000 feet (1,500 and 1,800 m) above sea level is something that cannot be described in words. Moreover, watching a wonderful sunset from the hill is one of the goals of the tourists, local or non-local. Something that can help you to recover from the boredom you have.

Actually, Davis Mountain State Park has a great bird hide for you, a bird watcher. The blind is a closed viewing station with a shielded patio, and some watering and feeding stations.

Davis Mountain State Park is a great bird-watching destination because it has become a comfy shelter for some species of birds.

You can watch woodhouse's scrub jays, white-winged doves, curve-billed thrashers, white-tailed deer, and rock squirrels that are flying in the sky. Also, do not miss to watch Montezuma quail that just walk offhand on the ground.

2. Hiking or Biking

There is a gravel and dusty trail in Davis Mountain State Park that is known as Skyline Drive Trail. This 4.5-mile trail goes through some highlands and valleys, so it is important for you to prepare yourself before hiking or biking, because it is going to be a hard, yet fun journey.

But if you just want to have good and plain hiking, you can use the 1.75-mile CCC trail. This trail will bring you to the Fort Davis National Historic Site, an important historical site in Texas.
Horse Riding

Enjoy crossing a difficult terrain with your horse at Limpia Canyon Primitive Area. A great and long journey by taking 11 miles from 4,900 feet high at Limpia Creek to over 5,700 feet high at highlands. And at the end of the road, you will be enlightened by an unbelievable view, something that you should see with your own eyes.
