Violet Crown Trail
The Violet Crown Trail began as a vision in 1999 to create the first regional trail system in Central Texas. After years of strategic land acquisition and planning, the trail stretches from Zilker Park to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. Phase 2 will take the trail into Hays County, making the eventual 30 mile trail the longest trail of its kind in Central Texas.
Emerging Professionals in Conservation (EPIC) is an outdoors club dedicated to exploring and preserving the natural beauty of the Texas Hill Country. Activities include camping trips, nature hikes, kayaking, ranch tours, educational happy hours with inspiring speakers, Violet Crown Trail cleanups, and more. Membership dues go to support Hill Country Conservancy’s projects.
