The foliage spectacle in October and November at Lost Maples State Natural Area is as colorful as any you’d see in New England. In autumn, big-tooth maple trees turn shocking golds, reds, yellows and oranges. In the summertime there’s good swimming in the Sabinal River. At any time of the year, campers will find back-country primitive areas where they can pitch a tent, as well as more convenient sites supplied with water, electricity and nearby showers.

Hiking trails will take visitors into rugged limestone canyons and prairie-like grasslands populated by bobcats, javelinas and gray foxes. Bird-watching is another popular attraction at Lost Maples due to green kingfishers, who take up residence in the park year-round.
