Park woodlands offer shade in the summer and are an excellent place to view fall foliage. Unlike other areas of Texas Hill Country where live oaks abound, this natural area is home to maple trees, which enhance the fall colors. Springs and streams abound throughout the park, interspersed among wooded areas and natural grasslands.
Known for its limestone cliffs and scenic canyons, Lost Maples is home to a variety of wildlife unique to the Texas Hill Country region. Here you will find armadillos, lizards, and white tailed deer. For visitors new to the region, the armadillos are especially fun to encounter. The nine-banded armadillo is the state mammal of Texas, and is named for the nine bands across the middle of its armour-like covering. This slow moving creature is a distant cousin of the anteater.
