1 Night Hiking Retreat to Hill Country State Natural Area!

Tucked away in the rugged terrain southwest of Bandera is Hill Country State Natural Area, an undeveloped and secluded retreat. Approximately 40 miles of  trails wind up grassy valleys, cross spring-fed streams, and climb steep limestone hills. Equestrians, hikers and mountain bikers can enjoy exploring the trails. 


1 Night camping and hiking experience in a pristine Texas park only two hours from Austin. We will hike along a beautiful canyon, eat deliciously prepared food, learn more about camping and hiking skills, watch the stars and have meaningful conversation by the camp fire. We will do several 2-3 mile hikes in the area( none are overly strenuous and can be for all levels. ) In the morning there will be optional guided meditation and in the evening there will be time for community reflection. 

Katherine from Reel Texas Productions will be taking photos for you so you leave with some tangible memories! 

Who is this experience for? 

This adventure is for anyone looking to experience more time in the outdoors. It's for the individual who bought all the camping equipment from REI but hasn't used it because they don't know how. This is for the person who has always wanted to camp or hike but is intimidated by the process of setting things up. This is for the person who wants to find an Austin community of high energy individuals wanting to experience nature. 

What if I've never hiked or camped?

Not to worry! Part of our mission is to ease the burden of planning and executing camping experiences. Cristina and another experienced hiker will be there to answer any of your questions.
