Celebrate Boxing Day and stretch your legs by joining us for a guided hike to Agave Loop. Santa hats required!

Agave Loop

Length: 1.5 miles

Difficulty level: Moderate. The hike begins with a gradual incline through a well maintained switchback trail to wide open vistas to the west. The return trip travels down over scree, or rubble, proving to be challenging for some.

Optional: binoculars, hiking stick, camera, and a map.

Fee: $5 for adults 13 years old and up; $0 for Texas State Park Pass holders and children 12 and under.

  • From Eastside on Hwy 54, take exit 29 towards Transmountain Rd, travel west 7-7.5 miles over/through the mountains. Park entrance will be on the right.
