Birding And Nature Walks In The Texas Hill Country

Burnet County, located in the Texas Hill Country is classified as a “rural” community. It’s true – we have no malls or skyscrapers, but at daybreak you can hear quiet. At nightfall you can see millions of stars in the sky. The landscape also features lots of rare and exotic birds that you can glimpse while making your way through hundreds of trails by bike or by hike.
