Q:  What are the trails like at McKinney Roughs?

A: The trails will be mostly gravel or rocky.  Bring rugged sneakers or good hiking shoes if you can.  Close-toed footwear will keep rocks from getting into your shoes and protect you from cactus spines. If there has been a lot of rain, expect a bit of mud as well, especially down by the river.  There will be some ups and downs along the trails, but there really isn’t any very steep terrain in the area.  Some of the trails will have some shade, but for the most part, expect to be in the sun a lot of the time.  Bring a hat, sunscreen and water bottles! (Note: LCRA Regulations prohibit glass containers at the park.)
