Hiking

Beautiful view

This is a hidden gem of a place. From the road it doesn’t look like much but the view from the rooms is amazing. Pristine river access and manicured landscape make this place a little slice of heaven. Crystal clear water and free use of canoes is another reason why we will be back to this gorgeous place. We celebrated our anniversary here and were pleasantly surprised with all this place had to offer.

Activities in Hill Country

Experience nature while hiking in Hill Country at a local’s favorite at Lost Maples during your stay at River Inn Resort!

Named a National Natural Landmark in 1980, the 2,208-acre park has picnic sites, camping, hiking trails, wildlife and birds. The terrain here can be steep and rugged, but the views of the limestone canyons, grasslands, springs, and clear streams that surround this natural area are worth the hike.

Be on the lookout for wild animals that inhabit the area like gray fox, armadillo, raccoons, rock squirrels, javelin and white-tailed deer. All of which are frequently spotted by park visitors.

Cool off from the heat and explore the West Trail at a lower elevation than the East Trail—next to a stream and foliage providing shade.

Be sure to bring plenty of water, hiking boots and a walking stick is recommended for climbing up and down the steep trails more easily.

Visitors brag about the big tooth maple trees and amazing colors of the maple leaves as they change in fall. Located in just a 30-minute drive from River Inn Resort, Lost Maples is an easy destination to witness the beauty of Texas Hill Country in its natural element.

Entrance Fee (subject to change):

  • Adults: Six dollars daily
  • Kids: 12 & Under Free
  • Address: 37221 F.M. 187 Vanderpool, TX 78885

After a long day of hiking, a comfortable room at River Inn Resort will be a perfect way to put your feet up and relax. Make your reservation today.

Girls weekend – tons of fun

Epic location. Very kind people. Older rooms but superb grilling areas, boats, noodles (for swimming or sword play – kidding), swimming area. I hope to go back often. It reminds me of the original Dirty Dancing movie. I created memories I’ll cherish forever!
