This is one of Austin’s most pristine nature preserves. The trails wind through granite outcrops, woods, and grasslands and near Bee Creek. A small waterfall about halfway through the hike is refreshing. It’s home to the black-capped vireo, a threatened species, and hundreds of other bird species. There are many interpretive stations along the trail, making it a great hike for nature lovers.

Great place to hike especially after a rainy winter. The front park is easy but if you take any of the back paths where the falls are it gets rough and there are several steep areas. You may pass a few people but overall it is nice and quiet.
