Lost Maples State Natural Area

Wildlife thrives here, including the endangered golden-cheeked warbler and black-capped vireo. Visitors enjoy picnicking, camping, hiking, birding, fishing and swimming.

Hike along 11 miles of trails and up steep canyon cuts to reach several dramatic overlooks. The star of this 2,200-acre area is a stand of uncommon Uvalde bigtooth maples, relics from the last Ice Age. Large weekend crowds journey here when the maples turn vivid colors in late October and early November. Mid-week trips recommended during this peak season.
