Get ready to go outside and soak up some fresh air! Head near West Lake Hills to hike River Place Nature Trail! The River Place Limited District trail system consists of three trails:

  1. Panther Hollow Trail
  2. Little Fern Trail
  3. Canyon Trail

It’s roughly a 6 mile-out and back- moderate/difficult hike that features a waterfall and great views!

There is a daily fee per hiker here during peak usage hours on Saturdays & Sundays ($10/ credit cards only). Dogs are also welcomed on this hike but must remain on a leash. Street parking on Big View Dr and around 4702 Blvd, where there is a second entrance. For an extra workout, park downhill.

In her previous life, Kristy was an uninspired realtor who was feeling a little bit bored with her day to day. So on January 1, 2010, she made a New Year’s resolution to write about one thing to do each day in her beloved city of Austin, Texas. And thus, 365 Things Austin was born.
