    McKinney Roughs has some nice trails down to the Colorado River, and was spared the Labor Day Fire, unlike the Bastrop State Park. But I'm sure the the folks at BSP would appreciate your support. Should be some good wildflowers blooming in there after the fire, but seeing all the dead pines may not be what you're after. Out west of town, Pedernales Falls SP and Hamilton Pool have some good hikes.

    Bastrop was great before the fire. Haven't been since but for hiking in that area I would go to McKinney Roughs like RO mentioned, that's a very nice area.

    depends on how far you want to drive/hike. lots of hiking along Barton Crk greenbelt extending W from Zilker, in N Austin there's Walnut Crk park, and if you want to really get away from people and go for a long hike, Goodwater trail is now open all the way around L. Georgetown--26-27 mi. of course there are many shorter hikes on Goodwater from one park to another as well. There is also the S Gabriel trail in G'town that extends abt 7 mi to the W until you get to L G'town dam. you will see lots more people on BC, WC and SG trails than you will on Goodwater--it's possible to go almost all the way around L G'town w/o seeing anyone except when you go thru the parks or over the dam. and if you want to see lots of people, hike LBL--you can easily extend the 10 mi loop by going E all the way to Montopolis Bridge. just google austin hiking trails for dozens of other options

    You guys did great. Pedernales Falls was perfect for a day out with the wife. I do want to ride around Georgetown someday. I miss mtn biking so much. Here is a pic from today.P4302194.jpg Weather was amazing.
