The Show Must Go On
Some very good news. Diana Moy, the Park Interpreter at Wyler Aerial Tramway State Park, emailed today to say that hikes, programs and outreach events will continue at the state park. They may have shut down the tramway to the public, but the show must go on.
I am sure you all heard the news about the tramway closure already but I wanted to email you personally.
I do not have much information other than that the park will be closed until further notice since it has surpassed its life expectancy and the agency (Texas Parks and Wildlife) is looking at options. We do not have a timeframe for reopening at the moment.
As far as our interpretive program at the park we are going to continue to work/offer programs:
Hikes – we will still offer our guided hikes up Ranger Peak; some will start at the park parking lot-up Ranger Peak-down 1000 steps trail, and some will be both up and down on 1000 steps trail. Check for location changes on thoseRegular programs (workshops, events, field trips) – but the location for those will be Franklin Mountains State Park (McKelligon Canyon or Tom Mays section)Outreach events (community events, career days, science fairs, presentations) – I will still be available to attend/participate on events.For more information or schedule any of programs or event you can reach out to me; you can call me at the park since my office will still be at the tramway (915 562-9899) press 0 when the recording begins or you can email me.
Thank you all for your continuous support!
