Beloved by locals, the Texas Hill Country offers pristine wilderness, invigorating hiking, and limitless tranquility. This is a special region full of hidden springs, wildlife sanctuaries, and towering Oak trees. Join us as we explore some of our favorite hikes throughout this rolling landscape. We'll explore this vast and varied landscape while keeping an eye out for the critters that call this area home. Each trail we visit is one of our favorite places and offers an opportunity for you to experience what makes it so unique. Each hike is different, and you'll need to be prepared to walk over potentially steep, uneven terrain. We love this region, and are pretty sure you will too!
You will receive a pre-course email from our Austin Outdoor School Staff 2-3 days before your class with more information about what to expect from the class, what to bring, where to meet, etc...
