|Texas Travis County | Pace Bend Park & Wildlife Preserve|
|Thursday, 03 June 2010 00:00|
Nestled within the rugged part of Texas Hill Country near Spicewood, Pace Bend is just 30 miles west of Austin. Pace Bend Park is easy to access by vehicles on the 7-mile paved road that looped the edges of Lake Travis. From the main loop, there are dozen of branches which take you to the cove and shoreline.
Our first stop was on the west side of the park. Formed by rocky coves and limestone cliff with a sheer descent into the water, this spot attracts mainly primitive campers, rock climbers and cliff divers (I guess)! Do consult the park ranger before engage in these activities.
Mudd Cove is the top favorite among day trippers or overnight campers. It is the main lake area whereby a family of all ages get to enjoy. Huge and spacious grassland overlooking Lake Travis, it is situated on the northern side of the park. Swimming is permitted here and there is an area of shallow beaches, perfect for children and dogs. On a breezy day, besides the birds guarding the coast, one may also see kites flying on the lovely blue sky. The view of Lake Travis, gravel beaches blended with the meadow of wildflowers is impressive!
We stayed until sunset and left as darkness fell across the vast land.
