BROWNSVILLE, Texas – A regional effort is underway to expand hike and bike trails across 11 cities.
Officials from the lower Rio Grande Valley gather for the unveiling of the Caracara trials. The project is meant to unify the region with outdoor tourism and the promotion of healthy lifestyles.
A special event kicked off the first of six trails that will consist of 428 miles of outdoor trails.
Belinda Reininger, UT Houston School of Public Health in Brownsville, “We’re going to be leaving our next generation with more opportunities to be physically active. To interact with their natural habitat. To see their beautiful historical and cultural features of our region.”
The trail will connect with existing hike and bike trails in 11 cities, including Brownsville, South Padre Island and Harlingen.
