Walking Trails

Our neighborhood offers a multitude of walking trails and scenic paths to enjoy the surrounding beautiful nature.

Quiet Moon Trail

Stretching from Anderson Mill to Zambia drive this decomposed granite trail takes you from the scenic ruins and Quiet Moon pool and playground back into the community.

Anderson Mill Trail

Along Anderson Mill is a lovely scenic trail starting at Cypress Creek Road and extending all the way to Lime Creek Road.  This trail takes you past the Ruins at Quiet Moon, the Monument Pocket Park, and all the way down to Deer Creek Elementary and beyond.  Expect to encounter fellow neighbors jogging, biking, or walking a pet along this trail.

Rambler Valley Trail

Between Zeppelin Drive and Rhondstat Run is a scenic little trail along Rambler Valley Drive.  This trail goes by a seasonal retention pond and at the intersection of Zeppelin and Rambler Valley you’ll find an entrance to Cypress Canyon Park bordering the Travis Audubon Society Baker Sanctuary.

Cypress Canyon Park

Cypress Canyon Park has two entrances and is located just off of Gholson Drive or Zeppelin and Rambler Valley.  It is a lovely little park with a nice trail, a shade structure with picnic tables, a playground area with two playscapes and a swings, a drinking fountain that has a pet fountain attached, a pet waste station, and some outdoor fitness equipment.

So bring the pets, kids, or come ready to get some exercise at this wonderful little neighborhood amenity.

Pocket Parks

Monument Pocket Park

At Drifting Leaf Drive and Anderson Mill Road is a meadowy little pocket park perfect for a picnic on a sunny day.

Zambia Pocket Park

At the edge of Deer Creek Ranch nestled between Zambia Drive and Copford Lane is a nice and shaded pocket park that has large boulders arranged in a circular formation in the center.

Passion Flower Pocket Park

At the end of Passionflower Pass when it intersects with Zambia Drive is a nice and shaded little pocket park that features a number of large boulders that can be used for seating and taking in a little solitude amongst nature.

Dies Ranch Treasure Cave

Located on Gholson Drive near the Cypress Canyon Park is the Dies Ranch Treasure Cave Preserve.  This lot was set aside to protect one of the most impressive cave entrances in the Buttercup Creek area.  The Texas Cave Conservancy obtained the cave on May 16, 2006.  Cavers and firemen use the site for vertical rope training.  The cave was part of the old Jack Dies Ranch.

The cave has been the site of extensive old excavations, perhaps searching for treasure or hidden gold. The tailing piles are evidence of the efforts. A fifty-sixty foot deep hand dug well was located thirty feet south of the cave. What may have started this search for lost gold?

The local outlaw Sam Bass and his gang robbed a train at Big Spring Station, Nebraska on September 18, 1877. They found 3000 newly minted $20 gold pieces in the safe. Over $60,000! After splitting the gold six ways, Sam Bass and Jack Davis left for Texas. Bass continued to rob trains while in Texas. He is said to have lived in a cave near Prairie Dell, Texas. While in Round Rock, Texas to rob a bank, he was shot and captured. He died on July 21, 1878. His body was brought to Austin for display.

The infamous Sam Bass was dead. Where was his gold? For several years following his death, people searched and excavated a number of caves in Williamson County. No gold was located. Today those 600 coins would be worth over $350,000.

If you’re an experienced caver and are interesting in obtaining access to the site, please send an e-mail to deercree@ciramail.com to sign a liability waiver and gain access to the site.
