Lost Maples — TPWD Photo

This is a terrific location in the Sabinal River Canyon right on the Sabinal River and it is available for hiking and camping. If the water is up you could also come here to go swimming.  The park is especially gorgeous typically from mid-October to mid-November when the leaves of the Uvalde Bigtooth Maple trees become spectacularly saturated with their fall foliage colors. There are superb opportunities for nature photography at this 2,174-acre park when the leaves are turning. Black-Capped Vireo and Golden-Cheeked Warbler nest and feed in the park in spring and early summer. There is also a nice swimming hole on the sparkling Sabinal River if you are coming out during the warm months.  Ask the park rangers about it.  Some of the better campsites are at 16, 17 and 18.
