Area Parks

The Texas Hill Country is home to some of the most beautiful state parks and regional natural areas in the state. This region is known for towering limestone bluffs, deep canyons with fern-lined springs guarded by tall bald cypress, and trails that meander through oak, juniper and madrone groves. If you are looking for the best hikes, great places to swim or just a quiet place to commune with nature, look no further than Dripping Springs for the most gorgeous scenery in the Texas Hill Country. Just 30 minutes from downtown Austin, 3.5 hours or 4-hours from Dallas, Dripping Springs is an easy day trip to experience some of the best parks in the Texas Hill Country.
