In Cameron County, Texas, the community has created a powerful vision to build a 428-mile trail network, delivering new avenues for recreation and physical activity, tourism and economic opportunity. The vision leverages the region’s unique culture and breathtaking natural assets in its strategy to inspire neighbors to get outdoors and be active—while generating a new tourism economy for south Texas.

On October 9, the Active Plan committee invites you to experience all that the region has to offer on a fully supported biking and kayaking tour of the region using the Active Plan catalyst routes.
