More Hikes In The BCP Available
BCCP Seal 

Saturday, December 1

Two Hike times : 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.



Join Travis County Staff for an interpretive hike at the BCP tract in Jollyville (near the intersection of Boulder Lane and 620).  We will give specific directions to the hike two days in advance the hike date.  The hike is of moderate difficulty, so come with appropriate footwear (hiking boots suggested; no flip-flops), sunscreen/hat, and drinking water. 


Since we have a large number of people interested in hikes, we have scheduled two hikes on the same day to accommodate a larger number of hikers, as seen above. 


A limited number of spaces are available - therefore, hike participants must email william.burch@co.travis.tx.us to register for the hike
