The following information about hiking might be useful to determine where to go for an outdoor walk.  If you go, DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK  because sometimes CONDITIONS CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS on the trails. WE DO NOT ACCEPT ANY RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR ANY RELIANCE ON THE INFORMATION PROVIDED BELOW REGARDING HIKING, and the INFORMATION IS  PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. WE DO NOT ACCEPT ANY RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR your acts or omissions, the conditions found at any of the sites we have described on our website, or the information contained in our descriptions of the destination sites.  We strongly urge you to TALK TO LANDOWNERS ABOUT ANY POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS CONDITIONS YOU MIGHT ENCOUNTER AND TO DISCUSS PROPER PRECAUTIONS THAT NEED TO BE TAKEN BEFORE BEGINNING YOUR HIKE.  


One of the purest forms of enjoying the great outdoors is to put on a pair of hiking boots or shoes and take a walk-about in the campgrounds, parks, recreation areas and private ranches located out in the hills of Central Texas. Hiking not only provides a great form of low-impact exercise, it also gives you fabulous opportunities to explore the rugged terrain of the Texas Hill Country where you can go to enjoy some nature photography or birding. Remember not to over do it if you haven’t been hiking in a while and always take plenty of water. Also, it is probably a good idea to obtain information from the site owner regarding the change in elevation that accompanies each of the trails. The last thing you want to do is to tote your dear old granny on a trail with you that has a 2,000′ change in elevation.


If you are interested in going on a guided hiking tour, you can find some general information here. The Texas Hiking website also has some good information on a lot of trails.
