The Big Stone Canyon 1.1 million-acre park The Big Rock, known as the ‘Big Stone’ because of the size of the rock that forms its base, is one of the world’s most spectacular parks.
It’s so vast that it stretches for miles around.
There are so many areas, from its topmost peak to the base of the canyon’s southern rim, that it’s hard to see them all.
You can spend the day hiking, kayaking, mountain biking or just relaxing in the natural beauty of the Big Stone.
The park also includes the Austin City Limits music festival, which takes place each year in the spring and summer, but it’s a perfect time to visit the park as you can enjoy the sights of the park and the surrounding area.
For those who prefer a quieter escape, there’s a short ferry ride to the top of the cliffs and then a short walk down the trail.
The only downside is that it takes a little while to get to the trailhead and get there, so make sure you book early.
