Catch a Sunset at Balcones Canyonlands Sunset Deck

Details

Added by Erin Newman-Mitchell

An incredible overlook and view of the Texas Hill Country and Lake Travis

The Sunset deck at Balcones Canyonlands is an amazing family- and pet-friendly spot. Parking is only about 100 feet from the overlook and is easily accessible for any and everyone. The overlook is absolutely serene and great for a picnic. There is also a small beginner trail ("Ridgeline Trail") nearby that is only about three quarters of a mile long. The road leading up to the deck is a dirt road and only about a mile from the gated entrance. It is free of cost to enter.
