Rock ID Hike

What’s a geologist’s favorite Police song? “Roxanne.” And what’s a geologist’s favorite way to spend a Wednesday afternoon in gorgeous Central Texas? A rock identification hike! Join the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department to tour Lockhart State Park and learn about rocks common to the area on a ¾-mile hike over moderate terrain. Free with park admission ($3 for adults and free for kids 12 and under); find your guide at the Creekview Trailhead. A stop for some of Lockhart’s famous barbecue on the way there or back is a gem of an idea. – Kat McNevins
