Located just 13 miles east of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, McKinney Roughs is home to hundreds of plant and animal species living within the rolling box canyons, wildflower meadows and lazy river bends of the Texas Colorado River. McKinney Roughs is a day use park where visitors can explore close to 18 miles of trails by foot or 12 miles on horseback (bring your own horse). The park offers many community programs as well. At the Visitors Center, pay your entrance fee and get the latest trail information. Peruse the gift shop and learn about the area's indigenous species through interactive exhibits and why the "river is the reason" for the presence and protection of this natural area. Features Natural Science Programs The park's Mark Rose Natural Science Center is home to quality science-based education programs led by trained educators and professional staff. Teachers, home schoolers, youth and corporate groups can schedule day or overnight education programs to learn about water conservation and land stewardship. Recreation programs such as a river raft trip and team-building on the challenge course tie together the strands of your group's nature experience. Amenities Special Event Facility Rental Host your next conference, workshop, retreat or meeting at one of LCRA's nature parks and natural science centers. Nonprofit, government and corporate groups are eligible to use the facilities for a reasonable fee. The spacious meeting room hosts up to 120 people and can be divided into three separate sections. A kitchen area is available. A catered dining hall accommodates up to 250 people. Three dormitories house up to 128 guests. less
