Exercise While Exploring Fall in the Hill Country

By Virginia Laird

Texas hill country is beautiful anytime of year, but there is something breathtaking about looking over the rolling hills and seeing the wide variety of fall colors scattered about. Getting outdoors and enjoying the scenery can be exciting for the whole family and provides some actual exercise in the process. With a huge selection of activities available for the next fall family outing, planning an adventure that all can enjoy is certain. A few of the favorites include:

  • Take a hike
  • Go horseback riding
  • Visit a local apple orchard

Take a Hike

Hidden in the hill country, in Colorado Bend State Park, is a breathtaking place known as Gorman Falls. The park is filled with phenomenal views and a beautiful waterfall, making it one of the most popular places to visit. With a variety of trails from which to choose, families can enjoy this trip time and time again, experiencing new views and scenery with each visit. This beautiful location may soon become the family’s favorite go-to outdoor adventure.

Go Horseback Riding

There is no shortage of places to ride the trails through the hill country. For those who may be looking for a different kind of experience, this may be just the ticket. Guided horseback tours allow visitors to enjoy the various types of terrain that can be found only while exploring the beauty of the area surrounding Georgetown. Check with your local trail ride location to make sure it is something everyone can do. Some places to do have age requirements for safety purposes. 

Visit a Local Apple Orchard

Picking apples may not be an activity you have considered for a fall family outing before. However, it can be a great deal of fun with the added bonus of bringing home a nice pile of freshly picked apples to enjoy. The hill country is scattered with apple orchards, all offering their own fall family fun. Many include corn mazes, hayrides, and even games for everyone , so there's plenty of physical activity available. While you are there, enjoy their fresh baked apple pies. Your tastebuds will be glad you did!

If you are planning any of these activities to be early morning or at dusk, make sure to carry a light jacket, because even in Texas the fall can be crisp and cool. Start making plans now to make sure your family gets the most out of fall! And as a hidden bonus, you'll be adding physical activity to make it even healthier.
