- Located approximately 75 miles northeast of San Antonio, this is one of the best spots in all of Texas to view fall foliage. Situated along the Sabinal River in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, the park is a spectacular mixture of limestone cliffs, dense woodlands, deep canyons and numerous crystal clear streams. Designated as a National Natural Landmark, it is home to the state's largest stand of bigtooth maples east of the Guadalupe Mountains. During the fall, the park attracts thousands of visitors who come to view the dazzling display of colors. To be sure, the main draw of the park is the changing of the leaves from mid-October to mid-November, but the park is also popular throughout the rest of the year for camping, fishing and wildlife observation. It also offers over 10 miles of hiking and backpacking trails; however, some of the trails are quite steep, and may not be for everyone.
