From the riverbanks to towering bluffs, Uvalde County offers visitors a unique glimpse of Texas nature all year round. Uvalde County is located just 90 minutes west of San Antonio in the Hill Country River Region and is home to the clearest rivers in Texas—the Nueces, Frio, and Sabinal. The pristine rivers are perfect for activities like floating, fishing, kayaking, and swimming. When the Texas heat begins to subside, visitors can hit the trails of popular hiking locations like Garner State Park and nearby Lost Maples State Natural Area. You will be sure to spot local wildlife and unique bird species in the trees during your hiking trip.
If it’s your first time exploring the rolling hills in Uvalde County, consider partaking in a guided horseback ride, or a nature tour from local providers who can teach you and your family all about the plants, and animals that call the County home. Visitors can even explore from the skies in a helicopter to see the natural beauty of the immersive nature from above.
