Guided Hike in Honey Creek State Natural Area next to Guadalupe River State Park

Public access to the Honey Creek State Natural Area is by guided hikes only. Experienced guides and Texas Master Naturalists will lead the hikes, providing insights into the cultural history, the flora, fauna, and physical environments of the State Natural Area. The Honey Creek guided hike is free, after admission to Guadalupe River State park ($7.00 per adult 13 years and older unless you have an annual State Park pass). The Friends of Guadalupe River State Park and Honey Creek State Natural Area who provide the guides appreciate donations to help sustain programs at the Park like the guided hikes. The hikes begin at the Rust House inside the Park (you can get directions at the Park entrance station). The hike is a two mile, two-and-a-half hours interpretive walk through the various ecosystems of the Natural Area–from the live oak savanna by the Rust House to the riparian gallery in the Honey Creek canyon. The trail descends gradually to the banks of Honey Creek, although the returning trail has a few hundred yards of steeper terrain. Good hiking shoes are recommended. Please bring water. There is a bathroom facility at the Rust House, but none along the trail. Dogs are not allowed. Also bring your curiosity about the Hill Country and its special places, along with a camera. Leave only footprints, and take only photos and memories.
