McKinney Falls State Park -One of the hidden treasures around the austin area --> right off inside the city limits you have this park standing 100's of acres to nurture wildlife and flora/fauna. The Waterfalls is amazing usually visit after the "Texas shower time - May showers" where the whole park transforms into a lush green belt embracing every heart and mind within her. Very well maintained trails, camping spots and friendly park staff to clearly instruct the visitor needs
why have I not heard of this?? TEXAS! The Narrows. Upper south side of Lake Travis near the community of Spicewood. From Austin take Texas 71, turn north on Spur 191, and proceed approximately one mile to Spicewood. Continue traveling north 1.1 miles on Burnet County Road 410 to CR 411, which is a gravel road. Proceed approximately 1.5 miles north to the entrance for the Narrows Recreation Area.
