Landlubbers: Steiner Ranch, our neighborhood, offers eighteen miles of trails that roll through the hillside offering a new view of the winding river at every turn. Mature oaks and other native trees and plants color the rolling hills while songbirds serenade you.
Birdwatchers: If you don't feel like leaving the nest, train your binoculars or our telescope on the banks of the Golden-Cheeked Warbler Preserve that sits just across the Colorado river. Herons, egrets, hawks and turkey vultures abound.
Paddlers: Grab a boat and head out in search of the old hunting camp on the preserve or the creeks across the river. Take your camera and binoculars and soak in Mother Nature's intoxicating beauty.
Fishermen: Catfish, largemouth bass and sunfish are the predomiant species you will find on the end of your hook.
Boaters: Launch your boat 20 feet away at the neighborhood park's private T-Dock and head down river for burgers, beer and a band at Ski Shores or further down to the dam for Tex Mex at the Hula Hut. We have a covered lift to keep your boat safe during your stay. Lake Austin runs 19 miles dam to dam with plenty to explore in between.
Golfers: Drive. Slice. Hook 'Em. That's the motto of the University of Texas Golf Club 5 miles down the road, a 7,412 yard Bechtol Russell-designed championship course nestled between Lake Austin and Lake Travis.
Couch Potatoes: Hit the hammock. That's all you have to do.
