From the mountains of the west to the rugged canyonlands of the Panhandle, there are plenty of gorgeous scenic overlooks in Texas. One of the best – and most underrated – can be found at Bastrop State Park. The aptly named Scenic Overlook Trail is short, sweet, and leads to a panoramic Hill Country vista that’s almost too beautiful for words.

Visit the hike’s page on AllTrails for more information.
