This is a 5 mile trail through McKinney Roughs Nature Park with minimal elevation gain.

The trail is used only for hiking or trail running, and dogs are allowed if kept on leash. McKinney Roughs Nature Park is scenic and popular!

This hike is located on Highway 71 in between Austin and Bastrop. There is a $4 entrance fee for McKinney Roughs Nature Park. The trails in this park are heavily used, so get there early! There is no Southern Loop trail on the McKinney Roughs hiking map, but the loop we recommend is Riverside trail --> Pine Ridge Trail --> Bobcat Ridge Trail.
