Bastrop/Buescher State Park Trails


Park Rd 1-C, Smithville, TX


The Bastrop/Buescher trail extends 7.7 miles, offering the chance to see abundant wildlife. The trail is rated as difficult and used for hiking (only). Activities include non-motorized boating (no ramp/small lake), nature study, hiking, geocaching, interpretive tours and biking.

The scenic, 12-mile paved road between Buescher and Bastrop state parks, which is winding and hilly, is ideal for biking but should be used only by experienced cyclists. Approximately six miles between the parks is private land; trespassing on private land and camping between parks is not permitted. The park also includes about eight miles of mountain bike/trail riding through pine trees and cedar elms. Swimming is not currently allowed in the park; Bastrop State Park has a swimming pool open seasonally. Canoe and tandem-kayak rentals are available. We also loan fishing equipment for use in the park.

Shown below are the hiking trails inside of each park.
