Government Canyon State Natural Area: Bluff Spurs Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Imagine an area ten times as large as New York City’s Central Park with 36 miles of trails... that’s Government Canyon State Natural Area. Walk on the geological fault that separates the Edwards Plateau and the blackland prairie ecosystem. Scramble down steep limestone outcrops, misleadingly called steps. View 80-foot canyon walls created by Government Creek. Start the Bluff Spurs Trail at signpost 1 at the turnoff from Recharge Trail. Getting to the trailhead requires walking through an open meadow on Recharge Trail, which is on the fault that separates the blackland prairie and the Edwards Plateau. Once on the Bluff Spurs Trail, start climbing uphill on the rocky singletrack."
