Comments: This is my first logged hike in the Austin Explorer website. I hiked this just this early evening while on the way home from work. Easy to get to the trailhead from the parking lot. In just under a half hour I saw one of the best sunsets of the summer, a family of geese, an egret, a scissortail, a mockingbird flying across the creek at full speed. I took the labyrinth trail and walked the entire labyrinth to great pleasure and calm. I saw one fisherman, two couples, a labrador and two small dogs. I will return often during the week for a quick hike and reflection.

A more narrowly focused but still abundantly informative treatment of the Texas Hill Country, this new edition features five tours of the Hill Country that capture the essence of its flavor and charm. Take a ride on the Fredericksburg & Northern Railroad, follow the historic Mormon trails from Travis Peak Community to Medina Lake, visit Enchanted Rock, and much more. This book gives you historic tidbits, folklore, and geography; detailed listings of lodgings, restaurants, and entertainment; major attractions, including state parks, museums, and historic places; directions, days and hours of operation, addresses, and phone numbers; and maps and calendar of events. This updated sixth edition contains even more destinations than ever before!

The author apologizes for the lack of table of contents and index that seem to be absent in the Kindle edition. He is working with the publisher to remedy the problem. They are present in the paperback version.
