The Texas Alps, like their namesake, attract throngs of outdoor enthusiasts who use Alpine as a base for mountain and desert exploration. Recreational opportunities range from hiking in the area's large parks to hunting in nearby canyons.
Kokernot Springs, on the Kokernot Lodge grounds, is the site of the Burgess Water Hole, which was used by pioneers, immigrants, stagecoach passengers and others to quench their thirst during desert passages.
