This stretch of the Guadalupe river is very popular as the State's premier trout fishing stream. The Guadalupe River is the Southernmost sustainable trout fishery in the nation.
Nice trail - good views... Great for trail running (although doing so with a dog is not so easy - lots to smell and a few loose dogs on the trail as well.) as has minor elevation changes to keep it challenging. Watch for osprey in the trees challenging the fishermen for the game! The trail is mostly dry (one area where you'll have to tiptoe across some muddy spots!) and only a few real rocky spots. At one turn, a tree has fallen over the trail/steps. Boldly go to the right across the loose rocks and the trail is right there for you! Squirrels, deer, cardinals and hawks abundant... Fireflies are great in the summer/fall! Enjoy - but, please, leave no trace!
I have hiked this trail twice this week and I must say, what a great work out! It has great elevation changes that if done right really work the legs! This trail runs parallel with the water so it's super pretty to boot! My only complaint is that the trail ends abruptly due to debris in the way of the last bit of it. But it's still a great choice!
Very pleasant trail and well marked. We were a bit confused about when it ended, but that was mostly because my Fitbit misreported the distance. Several people stopped and swam in the river. Nice trail.
It was pretty and fun! With plenty of steps....
Elevation was good, not just straight forward!
Great hike! Easy to find. A majority of the trail is shaded. The access to the water is perfect for a hot day. Can't wait to hike this trail again.
Very nice trail
definitely not a biking trail very challenging love the water
