Early Morning Wildlife Hike

Public – Since Stephen F Austin State Park is an easy drive from Houston (especially for the west side), let’s do an early morning hike before it heats up!

Since this park is an easy drive from Houston (especially for the west side), let’s do an early morning hike before it heats up!


I’ll put together a check list of items to find while we’re hiking.  In the early morning, we should see a good amount of wildlife.  Deer, rabbits, woodpeckers, many kinds of birds, etc.

Depending on how much we stop to view wildlife, we’ll hike anywhere between 3-5 miles.  It will be a casual hike but you should be able to walk 30 min miles (2 miles per hour).


What to bring:

- Water

- Sun protection

- Bug protection

- Study shoes (we’re on real trails)

- Snack


No Dogs or Kids Please.

For our best chances to see wildlife, please leave your dogs home for this hike.


Getting There:

There is a lot of construction on I10 near the exit. Please look up directions before you go instead of following GPS blindly.  You should get off right after crossing the river and drive through residential fields. It’s a really pretty drive.



Park in the lot at the Nature Center.



$5 per person unless you have a State Park Pass.  State Park Pass gets the entire car in for free.  Reserve your park pass online here. (https://texasstateparks.reserveamerica.com/ )


NOTE:  We are meeting before the park HQ opens.  Please reserve your day pass online, print it and put it in your windshield.  The park rangers will look for your parking pass.
