Blunn Creek Preserve Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Forty-acre Blunn Creek Nature Preserve, across the street from St. Edward’s University, remains wild and natural. The trails are well marked and maintained, although portions are rocky and steep. Blunn Creek is forded twice while going from dense tree cover to hilly overlooks. A short out-and-back segment leads to the Volcano Overlook.
Start at the West Creek Trail trailhead, on the north side of
St. Edwards Drive. This hike combines portions of several
trails in the preserve, and most parallel the creek. There are
many branches and intersections, but they are well marked. The trail surface is mostly dirt, with some gravel and compressed volcanic rock. Some of the outcroppings and rocks were created by volcanoes that existed in Travis County about seventy million years ago."
