The Colorado River Walkers will be hosting a “Texas Caves” traditional walk in Cedar Park on Saturday, April 24th. Our club has hosted walks in the Cave Preserves around Cedar Park in the past, and we are returning to these beautiful natural areas and the surrounding neighborhoods again this year.
Martin Callahan shared these pictures from April of 2018, when our club last hosted a walk through some of the Cave Preserves. In the photo above, Doug Eide with Rudy and Gayle Weinraub are standing by the “Hole In The Draw” Cave.
Doug has been our trail master for our walks in this area, and he has laid out new 6k/11k routes this year, both rated 1C. This year, the bulk of the walk will be in the 110-acre Discovery Well Cave Preserve. The caves in this preserve are each identified by a marker, and the cave openings are protected by locked metal grates to allow water and small wildlife to come and go but prevent people from entering the caves.
For all the details on the walk, see our flyer:
Below is a picture of Martin with Rudy and Gayle by Discovery Well Cave in 2018.
In the next picture, Doug turned around to wave at the camera before heading across the small bridge.

These pictures show that 2018 was a great year for bluebonnets in the area. Let’s hope they are blooming again this year in April!
