There's no better way to spend a weekend than out in the wilderness. Join us for the overnight, fall colors backpacking trip through the Lost Maples State Natural Area. Enjoy the splendor as fall colors fill the valleys of Lost Maples and spend the night under the stars deep in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. We'll break for camp along this 6 mile loop at a secluded site, spend a night under the stars, then continue on the trail after a tasty breakfast (and coffee!) in the morning. Besides enjoying the hike and scenery, our guides will be available to you if you're interested in learning skills such as equipment selection, packing and setting your backpack, the Leave No Trace principals, water purification and sanitation and more! We'll also transport you from Downtown Austin and back, and provide all equipment needed except for a personal sleeping bag. In addition, we will be providing all meals and snacks for the trip. Don't miss your chance to witness this autumnal phenomenon and camp in the park at its yearly peak!
