Nature Bathing

Immerse yourself in the beautiful Texas Hill Country overlooking the gleaming waters of Lake Austin on our Nature Hikes & Walks. Basking and “bathing” in nature and our surrounding lakes can have a positive impact on stress and blood pressure reduction while improving mood and the body’s immune system.

Boat & Breakfast Taco Hike

A scenic morning boat ride to the trailhead, taking in the sights and sounds of nature rising to the sun. We will split into two groups for a hike of varying levels, then return to the boat for a slow cruise home with homemade healthy Texas Tacos.

Geocache Scavenger Hunt Hike

We put a fun twist on a hike outing with this high tech gps scavenger hunt. After an easy debrief of using a hand held gps device, you and your team will work together to navigate your way to the designated waypoints. (Private group excursion fees apply)

Boaga Hike | Boat, Yoga & Breakfast

Cruise Lake Austin to our trailhead, explore a lovely creekside trail and return to the shores for a refreshing series of yoga postures. After we stretch and release, we will board the boat for a tranquil cruise with homemade healthy Texas Tacos, fruit and coffee.

Lakeside Walk or Jog

A quiet, meditative lakeside walk or a brisk opportunity to get out and add more steps to your day in an amazingly beautiful environment! There are many health benefits to walking just 30 minutes a day, so enjoy our lakeside granite trail at whatever pace you choose.

Ranch Ramble | Boat & Hike

There is no better way to reach a trailhead than by boat! In route, take in the beauty and serenity of Lake Austin. Upon arrival to the lakeside trail, our experienced staff will give you two guided options, a leisurely walk or a slightly longer, more challenging hike.

River View Hike

This three mile “vista” hike is one of the most scenic in the area. Overlooking beautiful Lake Austin, this trail loops through canyons, across creeks and traverses limestone overlooks. This is one of our most challenging hikes, so be ready for “Texas steep” inclines and declines. A short 5-minute van ride gets us to the trailhead quickly.

Majestic Oaks

A moderate hike with rocky terrain inclines and declines. A good feel for what it was like to roam the trails of this former historic working cattle ranch, Steiner Ranch.

Canyon Springs

Through the canyon to the natural rock pool, this is a gorgeous Hill Country hike. A few steep inclines and declines, it may get muddy during the wet season, but it is worth every step.

Valley Vista Forest Bathing Nature Walk

A quiet walk through the woods utilizes all of the senses and puts you back in touch with the healing powers of nature. At the halfway point, you’ll do a series of guided yoga poses that both center and ground, as well as bring about a peaceful feeling that leaves you refreshed and reflective of the sensory feast that takes place in the woods. Forest Bathing is another term for Shinrin-yoku therapy and originated in Japan in the 1980s. It has quickly become a cornerstone of preventative health care in Japanese medicine and literally means “taking in the forest atmosphere.”

Stairway to Heaven | Panther Hollow Double Diamond Boat Hike

One of the toughest hikes around but definitely the most gorgeous. We will travel by boat to this trail of steep canyons and terrain that lead us meandering through this pristine preserve land. From the trail head we will parallel Panther Hollow creek and stop at several lookouts, dip our feet into the crystal clear waters and take in this heart pulsing and soul riveting environment.
