Manly Men and Wild Women Hike the Hills

January 1, 2021

It's a new year and a new you. Time once again to test your mettle by participating in the... 13th Annual Manly Men Wild Women Hike the Hills

There's nothing complicated about it. Just show up at Tandy Hills Natural Area, the coolest green space in the inner city (plus we're celebrating our 60th anniversary!)  Our goal is to hike border-to border-to-border-to-border, tracing the steel cable that defines the 225+ acre boundary. Your rewards include but are not restricted to:

  1. You will lose at least 2 pounds. (They don't call it Tandy HILLS for nothing!)
  2. See sections of the park known only to a few hawks and a couple of scrawny coyotes.
  3. Celebrate the 62nd anniversary of the coolest park in Fort Worth.
  4. It won't kill you but will make you stronger (for the upcoming Prairie Posse)
  5. Gain a greater appreciation for this national treasure

NEW for 2022 > > > The 13th Annual, Manly Men Wild Women New Years Day Hike includes Broadcast Hill land that will cross one of the largest open prairies in FW proper. The entire route will be clearly marked from start to finish.
