Nature Trails and Hiking

Due to the nesting season of the Golden Cheeked Warbler and Black Capped Vireo some trails will be unavailble March 1 through August 31.

Hiking is the absolute best way to experience the rugged natural beauty of Texas, and Canyon of the Eagles Resort is the absolute best place to start your Texas hiking journey. Make it a day of discovery on our 14 miles of designated hiking trails. Whatever you wish to see - wildlife, wildflowers, lakeside lowlands or breathtaking vistas - the astonishing diversity of the Hill Country is yours to explore.

The trails at Canyon of the Eagles are different from your typical hiking resort. Our trails form a network of loops allowing you to customize the duration and difficulty of your journey. Our property maps and easy-to-understand marker system help you to maximize your hiking time, ensuring you always get the most from your day out on the reserve.
