This short trail is educational, scenic, and quick. Good for all skill levels and hikers / walkers of all ages.

Lyndon Johnson's grandfather and great-uncle established a cattle droving headquarters in the 1860s. Their log cabin and subsequent barns, cooler house, and windmill still stand. There is also a modern exhibit center focusing on the cattle business, early Johnson family and settlement history, and Hill Country survival. 

To reach the Settlement, take a self-guiding nature trail from the Visitor Center. The easy round-trip trail is less than a mile long.

For those traveling west on Highway 290 from Johnson City towards the LBJ Ranch, there is also a marked pullout where visitors may park their cars and walk into the Settlement. The property features horses and longhorns.
