River Place Nature Trail | Austin, Texas



  • Beautiful Texas Hill Country views
  • Pond with plenty of shade, rocking chairs and a board walk to catch perch.
  • Lush scenery
  • Dog and kid friendly trails to hike or run. Panther Hollow Trail starts at the pond. From there you can explore more by taking either of the following two trails:
    • Fern Trail: has the most waterfalls and lots of ferns.
    • The Canyons Trail: the longer trail with less shade but still has a few waterfalls.
