Lost Maples State Natural Area is best known for its population of maple trees, considered “lost” because they occur infrequently in the region and because they grow in deep, narrow canyons that are not readily accessible. The natural area’s location, in the Vanderpool–Utopia section of the Hill Country, may win the designated favorite of Texans by popular vote. This part of Texas is like no other with its rugged yet gentle beauty, its plenitude of limestone canyons and clear springs, and plateau grasslands with spreading oaks that, when cloaked in mists and mysterial light, Maples provide brilliant autumn color along the East Trail. appear lifted directly from a Pre-Raphaelite’s canvas.
