Ten state parks and natural areas are located in the region around Fredericksburg. The Hill Country is famous among birders as the most reliable place to see two endangered species the jewel-like Golden-cheeked Warbler and the red-eyed Black-capped Vireo. The Hill Country supports the largest white-tailed deer population in the state. Opportunities for hiking, rock climbing, road cycling, mountain biking, volkssporting, fishing, birding, golf, horseback riding and hunting bring folks from across Texas and the U.S. to experience the rugged beauty and therapeutic peace of the Texas Hill Country first hand.
Whether it’s watching the evening emergence during the summer of over one million Mexican free-tail bats at the Old Tunnel Wildlife Management Area or rappelling down the sheer face of a granite boulder at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area or viewing colorful fall foliage at Lost Maples State Natural Area, the Texas Hill Country is sure to cure those uptight, urban blues.
Fredericksburg’s central location in the Texas Hill Country makes it a great home campÂ to experience the Hill Country’s outdoors.
