Just 60 miles outside of Austin, TX, Bluff Creek Ranch offers fun for the whole family - swimming, fishing, hiking, and camping. The hiking loop is a moderate trail that showcases quiet Texas countryside.

Bluff Creek Ranch is located off of Owl Creek Road (see map). There are 8 miles of well-shaded trails that are accessible year-round and is shared by hikers and bikers. You can also camp here, for $15/person/day (less for children). There are also bunkers available - for a slightly more glamorous night of camping.
