10 Secret Outdoor Spots You Can Hike to in Austin, Texas

There’s no measure of fun the city of Austin, Texas offers its inhabitants and visitors.

The city’s massive live music scene attracts people from around the world, especially during the South by Southwest and Austin City Limits music festivals. Along with taking advantage of its diverse and established music world, visitors can do a whole bunch of experimenting with Austin’s up-and-coming food and drink scene.

But after spending all day (and night) in crowded music venues, standing in line for hours at Franklin Barbecue and trying your patience with the city’s hoards of hipsters, you’ll be craving some well-needed outside time.

Luckily for you, Austin also offers some great “outdoorsing”, especially if you know where to find it. The city’s prime location in the Texas Hill Country and along the Colorado River offers up spots to swim, climb and take in a mighty view.

Escape the busy city with these off-the-beaten-path outdoor excursions.
