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. Geology buffs will find the Edwards Plateau limestone intriguing and wonder just how deep the karst underground is. Walk on the geological fault that separates the Edwards Plateau and the blackland prairie ecosystem. Watch for wild hogs, nonvenomous and venomous snakes, and the endangered golden-cheeked warbler.
