A glimpse of South Austin history
Stephenson Preserve - 9/27/2004  [View Log Page]
Rating: N/A Difficulty: 2point5stars Solitude: 4stars
Distance: 2.50 Miles Duration: N/A
This is a little secret here in South Austin. The trails are well marked and the scenery is nice. Some of the area seems to be returning to its natural habitat and there are numerous signs that it was once a ranch. Old stone walls, old barbed wire fences and rusted out tin cans from days gone by.
Creekside walk

I grew up in the neighborhood around here so I spent a good deal of time wandering these trails. There usually aren't very many people around here and the creek always seems to have some water in it. Years ago I heard a story about a ghostly white horse that used to haunt this creek long ago. So far, it only seems haunted by maybe a few kids and some stray pets.
