Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge

balcones canyonThe primary purpose of this refuge is to protect habitat for Golden-Cheeked Warblers and Black-Capped Vireos and other bird species. Lots of winged creatures and various types of mammals inhabit this refuge so there are plenty of wildlife viewing opportunities up here. The preserve contains about five miles of hiking trails and has an observation deck. There should be many good photo opportunities at this site. Remember to leave the pets behind, this is a wildlife refuge not the hike and bike trails.  After you go for a hike here you could get a beverage at the Old Oak Icehouse. From Marble Falls, head east on 1431 and look for the signs.
