Help protect the wild spaces you love. Wild Basin has lost almost 50% of its donation income this year. Your gift via Eventbrite funds preserve protection, trail maintenance, education programs, and expert research. Thank you.

Wild Basin is a nature preserve. Please stay on the trail and follow the Leave No Trace Seven Principles. Collecting, bikes, pets, smoking/fire, weapons, and picnics are all prohibited. Everything is protected on the preserve.

Get ready to hike. Be prepared for rugged Hill Country terrain and varying weather conditions. Hiking passes are valid rain or shine. Save a digital Wild Basin Trail Map. Bring water to carry with you on the trail. No facilities are currently available.

Let's stay safe together. In response to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, Wild Basin follows state and local health orders, and the St. Edward’s University Healthy Hilltop Community Standards. In order to protect the health and safety of visitors and staff, the following additional rules are in effect as of September 17, 2020:

  • All trails are one-way clockwise only. Follow the new signs.
  • No facilities, water, or restrooms are available.
  • Six-foot social distancing is required. Pass at trail intersections.
  • Face coverings are strongly recommended.
  • No groups larger than 10 people are permitted.

Wild Basin reserves the right to refuse service or entrance to the preserve for non-compliance with preserve rules. During this unprecedented time the preserve may close at any time and without advance notice.
