This past Memorial Day, after a day of napping we headed out to McKinney Falls State Park to enjoy the day and sunshine….WHAT A GEM! Having wanting to do something outdoors, but realized I had slept the day away AND it was a holiday, I knew my options were limited. According to the website, this place was only 20mins away. I figured it was worth a go, plus dogs were allowed on leash. We drove out there, paid $6/head, got a map and took off! There were tons of hiking and chances to get in the water. The only regret I have is not wearing my keens so I could walk in the water (which would open m e up to other hiking options). See my review below! photo 2
