McKinney Roughs Nature Park

1884 State Highway 71, Wyldwood, Texas 78612 USA

“where characteristics of four ecosystems converge”

McKinney Roughs is an 1,100 acre nature park where characteristics of four ecosystems-- Post Oak Savannah, Blackland Prairie, East Texas Piney Woods, and a riparian zone-- converge to create an unusual blend of natural resources. Located just 13 miles east of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, McKinney Roughs is home to hundreds of plant and animal species living within the rolling box canyons, wildflower meadows and lazy river bends of the Texas Colorado River. McKinney Roughs is a day use park where visitors can explore close to 18 miles of trails by foot or 12 miles on horseback (bring your own horse). The park offers many community programs as well. At the Visitors' Center, pay your entrance fee and get the latest trail information. Peruse the gift shop and learn about the area's indigenous species through interactive exhibits and why the "river is the reason" for the presence and protection of this natural area.

Looks beautiful but the main entrance is closed. So used another entrance and that trail head was closed for maintenance.
