Lockhart, Bastrop, Alum Creek, Smithville, and La Grange Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Lockhart is a conglomeration of the stuff of Texas legends: Indian battles, cattle drives, cotton, and oil. This small town, located south of Austin, contains a state park and lots of history. Lockhart is also well known as the home of Mebane cotton. Developed by A. D. Mebane, this strain is resistant to the boll weevil, an insect that can demolish not only whole fields but entire economies as well. Bastrop is a popular day trip for Austinites looking for a chance to shop and savor some quiet country life in a historic setting.

Outdoor lovers can enjoy two nearby state parks and also the Colorado River, which winds through the heart of downtown. Canoe rentals and guided trips along the river are available. Today all that’s left of the community of Alum Creek is a collection of over a dozen antique and junk shops. It’s a fun stop for avid collectors. The shops are located on the left side of the road as you head east; many are open weekends only."
