Where to Go for Texas Hill Country Hiking

Patsy Glenn Refuge

One place you can enjoy the great outdoors is at the Patsy Glenn Refuge, which is 4-minutes from Cypress Creek Cottages. If you enjoy birding while traversing hiking trails, you’ll love an outing at this park. The Wimberley Birding Society created this space as a bird sanctuary, so the paths are lined with gorgeous wildflowers and plenty of feeders to attract all kinds of local species. Take a casual walk here to embrace the natural beauty of the Texas Hill Country.

 

Cypress Creek Nature Preserve

Stroll down the Cypress Creek Nature Trail that runs parallel to Cypress Creek. Enjoy a few miles of trails that provide a scenic walk throughout the great outdoors. You’ll also appreciate the picnic tables that are great for resting your legs and the pavilion to escape the sun. And, what’s even better, this park is pet-friendly, so you can bring your furry friend along on your relaxing outing.

 

Blue Hole Regional Park

A hike at Blue Hole Regional Park may be one of the most rewarding hikes you can experience. Not only is it made up of 126-acres of natural areas, but it also encompasses an amazing natural wonder found in the state of Texas: a gorgeous natural swimming hole. So, once you’re done perusing the 4.5-miles of trails, you’ll end at the still, cool waters of this beautiful feature. Make sure you bring your bathing suit so you can jump in!
