It’s really not much of a secret, but Austin’s McKinney Falls gets a nod in an episode of the Travel Channel’s program, “Top Secret Swimming Holes.”
The program will air at 9 p.m. Sunday.
McKinney Falls features 9 miles of trails, an ancient rock shelter, camping facilities and a couple of pretty nice waterfalls, which are flowing nicely thanks to heavy spring rains. The bones of an amphibian dinosaur named Mosasaur were discovered at the site in 1935. And an Austin yoga instructor leads regular yoga hikes there. http://www.mystatesman.com/news/lifestyles/recreation/like-a-little-hiking-with-your-yoga-try-yogahike/nnMqb/
The hour-long TV program gives viewers a glimpse of natural swimming spots at rivers, lakes, ponds and streams around the globe.
