#OptOutside for Black Friday  --- Doeskin Ranch

Join us for our annual "Opt Outside" hike on Black Friday at Doeskin Ranch on RR 1174. We will start with an easy hike along the 0.6 mile Creek Trail.  The trail leads us through grasslands, and along the north end of the creek.  You’ll see lots of diverse habitat and plants.  Then if you’re up for it, you can continue to hike with us south along the creek, up the hill, circling the ridge along the Rim Rock Trail.  It’s a total of 2.2 miles with lovely hill country views through old growth cedar and oak savanna.  We have two Master Naturalists  leading the hikes this year. 

Note: Registration will be limited to 15 people.

Note:  Registration is required as total hike participants is limited due to COVID-19 guidelines. We follow the guidance of Travis county which is at Stage 3 as of this posting (11/13/21).

In the event we need to cancel due to weather or other circumstances, you will be notified by 7:00 on the morning of the hike.

As always, wear appropriate shoes, bring plenty of water, bug spray, and sunscreen.

Some phone-based GPS’ will not work in this area. A printable map can be found here.
