Join a Government Canyon Ranger and get your kids outside on a toddler-led walk down the Discovery Trail! The stroller friendly trail (decomposed granite) is a 1.25 mile loop and features typical Edwards Plateau species such as Ashe Juniper, Plateau Live Oak, and Mountain Laurel. After the hike, take the kids over to the new Nature Playscape for even more fun!
