This set of trails, a lesser-known gem of Austin-area hiking, allows access to a small but varied section of the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge, 24,000 acres of Hill Country between Lake Travis and Liberty Hill. Climb from a creek to a plateau dotted with thickets of shin oak, and enjoy wide-ranging views. At the trailhead, take a moment to peruse the information boards.
