Gudalupe Peak-Trail_1146


This quirky staircase zigzags up a hill in one of Texas’ largest urban parks. Its 88 steps provide Central Texas residents with quite a workout. The stairs were originally built in 1963 to replace an aging ladder that led from a family’s property at the top of the bluff to the river below.
