The Best Things to Do in Texas Hill Country

What is the Texas Hill Country Known For?

As the border between the Southeast and the Southwest, the Texas Hill Country has the best of both worlds, full of endless opportunities to play and explore. Featuring beautiful rock formations and steep canyons you'd expect from the Southwest as well the limestone caves and natural springs common in the Southeast.

Roddy Tree Ranch is surrounded by some of Texas Hill Country's most iconic attractions, from the Guadalupe River to Lost Maples, Garner State Park, Enchanted Rock, and of course, historic Ingram, Texas. To help you get the most out of your visit to the Texas Hill Country, we've put together this travel guide.

Works of art are available for purchase at most of the shows, and admission to the gallery is always free.

Enchanted Rock

Climb the ancient dome for amazing Hill Country views. The massive pink granite dome rising above Central Texas has drawn people for thousands of years. But there’s more at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area than just the dome. The scenery, rock formations and legends are magical, too! You can hike, backpack, camp, rock climb, picnic, bird, study nature, geocache and stargaze. (You cannot swim here or ride bikes on the trails.)

Schumacher Crossing

You can thank the late John Schumacher for damming up this little section of the Guadalupe in the early 1920’s to prevent flooding, which inadvertently created quite the swimming hole. Schumacher Crossing along the Guadalupe River is a true beauty, with a panoramic cascade of short waterfalls enveloped by towering cypress trees.

Garner State Park

Garner State Park is a great place to visit for a swim or hike, or to enjoy a relaxing weekend. With 2.9 miles of Frio River winding through 1,774 acres of scenic Hill Country terrain, the park offers lots to see and do!
