Let our “Get Outside” series be your guide to summer fun in the Hill Country
The Texas Hill Country surrounding Rancho Sienna is a vast and beautiful place to explore, covering 41 counties, including Travis County.
Many of the Hill Country’s most beautiful natural treasures are close enough to Rancho Sienna to make for easy day trips, and some offer overnight camping.
Here are just a few of the destinations we’ve profiled in our ongoing “Get Outside” series:
- The Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge is prime territory for bird watchers. It hosts 245 species of birds within its 27,500 acres, including the endangered golden-cheeked warbler and black-capped vireo. It’s also a great place to see the twice-a-year migration of Monarch butterflies. Hiking and guided tours are among the activities offered.
- Located along the North Fork of the San Gabriel River, Lake Georgetown is a 1,297-acre lake that’s home to several waterfront parks offering camping, fishing, swimming and more.
- Brushy Creek Park offers a natural getaway in the heart of Cedar Park, with a 38-acre lake, a calming labyrinth, a connection to the Brushy Creek Regional Trail and a fun water playscape.
- Garey Park, a 525-acre City of Georgetown park previewed in our blog, officially opens June 9. Attractions include hiking trails, equestrian trails, a playground, splash pad, a dog park and more.
- Our blog roundup also includes 7 fun Summer Bucket List adventures, from plunging into the Hill Country’s refreshing swimming holes, to enjoying a splendid sunset at Enchanted Rock.
