Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve has been around since the early 1970’s and was founded to protect endangered species and hundreds of native plants, animals and birds in the Hill Country. There is over 200 acres of wilderness and beauty and visitors can hike over 2 miles of the trails. Great quiet place to get away from the city, house and telephones! It’s just beautiful and a great learning experience for the kids! Don’t forget the camera! Oh, yeah, it's free! They do accept donations.
