Several groves of bigtooth maples still stand from a time when the climate was much cooler and moister, protected in canyons from the wind and heat. The fall foliage here is a spectacular sight — and very popular. Parking is limited so if possible, visit during the week. Wildlife abounds with gray fox, white-tailed deer, armadillo, raccoon, bobcat and javelina and the park is a bird watchers paradise, featuring over 300 species including the endangered black-capped vireos and golden-cheeked warblers. There are a few hiking trails to absorb the incredible, rugged scenery.
