The Adventure Seeker’s Spring Break at McKinney Roughs

March 1, 2019 | By Melissa Gaskill

With 18 miles of hiking trails—
13 of them open to mountain bikes and horses, along with plenty of flora and fauna along the Colorado River—

All of the above makes this Lower Colorado River Authority property an excellent destination for a family spring break adventure.
