McKinney Roughs Nature Park:Riverside Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This route combines the best of the 17 miles of McKinney Roughs Nature Park’s crisscrossed collection of loops and out-and-back trails into one spectacular 2.5-mile hike.

Start from the flat ridgetop, then head down to the Colorado River, getting sweeping views of rolling box canyons, steep ravines, juniper and oak forests, wildflower meadows, and the river itself. Pass through four Texas ecoregions: post oak savanna, blackland prairie, east Texas piney woods, and central Texas plateau."
