Ladera’s trail system gives you a chance to explore and exercise


Ladera is a natural, open space community interlaced with creekside trails. The Lucas Creek Trail is the main path for the system. Throughout the trail system, you’ll find trailheads, scenic lookout spots and convenient seating. Explore the area’s varying terrain as you walk, bicycle, jog or run along the trails.

Take advantage of numerous recreation opportunities


Besides the trail network two future recreation centers will provide swimming, play and athletic opportunities for residents of Ladera’s neighborhoods. Across the street from Ladera, you’ll find Briggs Ranch Golf Course, an 18-hole course designed by Tom Fazio and recognized by Golfweek as the best residential course in Texas and sixth best in the U.S. With its enhanced natural terrain, the course appears to be in continuous motion, creating interesting challenges in a Texas Hill Country setting.  Plus, a newly renovated public course called “The Golf Club of Texas” has recently opened.
