'Round Red Bud Isle Tour
This 3-mile hyper-natural tour heads west, away from the city, and around Austin’s Red Bud Isle and back. The scenery features limestone bluffs, greenery and wildlife everywhere you look! We’ll take you to the city's magical Secret Spring, where you’ll discover a natural spring and oasis that is relatively undiscovered, even by many locals. Your guide will share a historical perspective on the greater Colorado River and the immense watershed that Lady Bird Lake is a part of. They’ll also touch on the Highland Lakes Chain, and how this series of dams and reservoirs has changed and revolutionized the region.
For this tour, we recommend bringing snacks, lunch or pre-ordering a cheese board or sandwich box from our local partner, Cheese Please Co. We will take a break at Red Bud Isle for participants to eat before heading back to Rowing Dock.
