Texas Hill Country lovers and bird-watchers can combine the Cactus Rocks, Vista Knoll, and Ridgeline Trails to explore the Balcones limestone terraces in the Warbler Vista area of Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge. Follow the Vista Knoll Trail down the backbone of a ridge and then back up for panoramic views of the Hill Country and Lake Travis. On the Cactus Rocks Trail, cactus appears to grow out of rocks. Look for “Swiss cheese” limestone rocks riddled with holes.
