How to See the Texas Hill Country Fall Colors With Your Family

The Best Places to See the Texas Hill Country Fall Colors

Cypress Creek Nature Preserve 

Only a 4-minute drive from Cypress Creek Cottages

This seven-acre stretch of land runs alongside Cypress Creek and is conveniently located next to Wimberley Square. When you visit here in the fall, the maple trees yield gorgeous colors of red, orange, and yellow

What to Do:

  • Take a scenic walk along the walking trail.
  • Take pictures with the unique art and statues that sit in the preserve.
  • Head over to Wimberley Square and go shopping at Wimberley Market Days.

Blue Hole Regional Park 

Only a 6-minute drive from Cypress Creek Cottages

This park’s cypress trees will dazzle you with oranges and yellows during autumn. It’s the perfect place to spend the day outside with the family and breathe in the fresh fall air. 

What to Do:

  • Play a game of basketball or volleyball at the courts.
  • Pack a picnic and bask in the scenery as you eat. 
  • Go swimming. The Blue Hole Swimming Hole remains open throughout September. 

McKinney Falls State Park 

Only a 48-minute drive from Cypress Creek Cottages. 

This outdoor oasis has tranquil waters that are surrounded by bald cypress and red oak trees that change to vibrant shades of reds and oranges in the fall. A day spent here is a day your family won’t soon forget. 

What to Do: 

  • Teach the kids how to fish. McKinney Falls is the perfect place to do this because you don’t need a license to fish from the shore in Texas State Parks
  • Go on a modern-day treasure hunt and look for geocaches
  • Become a Junior Ranger! Pick up a free Junior Ranger Activity Journal at the Visitor Center and earn a badge.
