If you’ve ever wondered what particular plants and animals are while hiking in Texas, I highly recommend cruising this trail.
While it’s not much of an actual hike, Mansfield Dam is an awesome park-and-walk.
The perfect place to scope the Austin skyline perched above the beauty of Lady Bird Lake.
Hang out at Stouthaus Coffee Pub for the atmosphere, and stay for the Cuvee coffee and local craft beer.
Throw on your walking shoes, and get ready to climb 50-100 stairs.
To my surprise, cardinals were singing, the creek was babbling, and the Greenbelt was alive with activity!
I took the morning to drive to Fredericksburg from Austin, TX to check out Enchanted Rock (a granite exfoliation dome).
This mixed-use, high-traffic hiking / biking / equestrian path is a choose-your-own-adventure experience.
