You cannot beat the views of this hike--beautiful, diverse landscape and colorful maples in the fall. A must-do hike in Lost Maples State Park.

The Lost Maples Extra Loop Trail is 7.1 loop hike that loops around the majority of the park. It is highly trafficked and offers stunning views of the Texas Hill Country landscape. Please be advised that there are several challenging inclines and steep portions of the trail, so hiking shoes and poles are recommended. The best and most popular time to visit and hike this trail is during the fall, when the trees begin to change colors.

Park in the lot off of 187 (see map) to access the trail. Dog-friendly and accessible year round.
