Event description

Description

Join a Government Canyon Ranger and get your kids outside on a toddler-led walk down the Discovery Trail! The stroller friendly trail (decomposed granite) is a 1.25 mile loop and features typical Edwards Plateau species such as Ashe Juniper, Plateau Live Oak, and Mountain Laurel. After the hike, take the kids over to the new Nature Playscape for even more fun!

Who is Invited

This program is open to all ages; minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian.

Registration & Fees

Registration required for EACH ADULT. You need NOT register children. Sorry, no group registrations. Natural Area entry fees apply; stop at the Entrance Fee Booth to self-pay/register.

When & Where to Meet

Arrive by 8:45am. Meet at the rainwater tower next to the Visitor’s Center. Plan ahead, as the Natural Area often experiences heavy visitation and there may be wait time at the fee booth.

What to Wear & Bring

Dress appropriately, sunscreen and hat recommended, wear sturdy footwear for hiking over rough terrain; bring two liters of water and a snack.

Requirements

Group size is limited to the first 10 adults that register. No pets please. Minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian. To reduce human impact on the Natural Area, please follow the Leave No Trace principles of outdoor ethics.
