Commons Ford is an easy, short hike near the lake. Great for smaller kids.

Reimers Ranch is both a canyon and a forest preserve so there’s a lot to see in one park.

McKinney Falls swim area can get ultra crowded in the summers but the trails are always pretty open.

Hamilton Greenbelt is a super nice trail system in the Lake Travis area with a bird watching area.

Pace Bend has miles and miles of trails. One side of the park is beaches, the other side is cliffs.

Bull Creek is an Austin favorite for hiking, mountain biking, and more.
