  6. 6. HISTORY Lost Maples State Natural Area covers 2,174.2 acres in Bandera and Real counties. It is north of Vanderpool on the Sabinal River. Purchased from private owners in 1973 and 1974, the site opened on Sept. 1, 1979. About 200,000 people visit the park each year. Evidence shows that prehistoric peoples used this area at various times.  The Spanish began exploring and colonizing around here in the late 17th century. Apache, Lipan Apache and Comanche Indians ranged over the land. They posed a threat to settlement well into the 19th century. NATURE The park showcases many Edwards Plateau plants and animals. Lost Maples holds steep and rugged limestone canyons, springs, plateau grasslands, wooded slopes and clear streams. The fall foliage of our large, isolated stand of uncommon Uvalde bigtooth maples can be spectacular. The foliage changes color the last two weeks of October through the first two weeks of November, depending on the weather. The park is very popular during the fall and is often crowded. Note: Schedule trips during the weekdays, if possible, as we only have space for 250 cars. Look year-round for rare species of birds, such as the green kingfisher. The endangered black- capped vireo and golden-cheeked warbler nest and feed in the park in spring and early summer. Other wildlife includes gray fox, white-tailed deer, armadillo, raccoon, bobcat, rock squirrel and javelina. 06 About Lost Maples Monkey Rock
