Hill Country State Natural Area: Wilderness and Twin Peaks Trails Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Sections of the Wilderness Trail combined with the Twin Peaks Trail is hiking at its best. Go through canyons, up and down rocky hills, and across seasonal creeks to see some of the best scenery in central Texas. The small loop around the Twin Peaks, which are more than 1,800 feet high, has spectacular views. This hike is not recommended for young children.
Keep in mind the warning a ranger gave about this being a primitive area: “We are a primitive park. If you think you need it, we don’t got it—you’ll need to bring it!” This is in keeping with the stipulation from Louise Merrick of the Merrick Bar-O-Ranch when she donated the land, that it “. . . be kept far removed and untouched by modern civilization, where everything is preserved intact, yet put to useful activities.”"
