Park Activities

The park's location is historically significant since it is in the heart of the former President's home country. The area has been influenced by three major cultures: Native Americans, Spanish and German. Indians roamed the Hill Country first, leaving behind artifacts which tell of their nomadic life. The Spanish conquistadors followed, bringing a culture which was to endure to the present. German immigrants settled the Hill Country in the early 1800s and their descendants still call it home.

Trip One - TX

Start outside San Antonio by visiting Government Canyon State Natural Area. Spend the morning hiking through live oak savannahs, old-growth Ashe juniper trees and some Spanish moss overhangs for a relaxing start to the day. Then take Interstate 10 north to Fredricksburg where you can picnic at Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historical Site on the banks of the Pedernales River, across from the former President’s ranch. Hurry though, its best to make it to the Old Tunnel Wildlife Management Area by dusk in order to catch bats exiting the cave looking for insects to eat (May-October). Cap your long day with a short drive to stay the night in one of 46 campsites at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area. Don’t worry, the next day is all about lollygagging and relaxing—if you want—but we recommend climbing to the top of the pink granite dome.

When in Texas, there's no better historical 1-2 punch ... or maybe Texas two-step, if you like ... than going to the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin,...
