Gas Saving Getaways - Canyon of the Eagles

There's a reason that Canyon of the Eagles has its name . The nature park is home to three endangered species, including the American bald eagle, the black-capped vireo, and the golden-cheeked warbler.  These and other kinds of wildlife are protected in an 800-acre nature preserve, encompassing most of the 940-acre park.  Visitors to the park often spot this spectacular bird during their stay.

Here's a little taste of what you'll find at Canyon of the Eagles Nature Park near Burnet, Texas.

Canyon of the Eagles has so many things to see and do!  With three miles of lake front, water activities are in high demand.  Choose from fishing, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, and more.  Sign up for a guided kayak tour  with Buchanan Adventure Tours and get a little wet under the falls.

Put in a little time hiking on the trails while you're there.  Make sure you schedule enough time for it - there are 14 miles of trails to enjoy at Canyon of the Eagles.  At the end of your day, you can camp in your tent or in an RV.  Or, for those who prefer not to "rough it", spend the night in one of the 62 rooms at the full-service resort!

Be sure to visit when the skies are clear so you can check out a star party at the Eagle Eye Observatory.  The star parties are hosted by the Austin Astronomical Society, and are a "must do" activity at Canyon of the Eagles.
