If you are looking for a challenging hike for Texas, then this is your hike. This is the hike you do to train for the Grand Canyon when living in Austin.
River Place is 6.3 miles when you hike all the way to Lake Austin, just 6 if you go to the fountain at the bottom and back up. It was dry except for the fern wall, but I could tell this place is awesome when we are not in this serious drought.
