Directions from Bandera, TX: Travel south on State Highway 173, go across the Medina River and continue for approximately 1/4 mile to State Highway 1077, turn right and go 10 miles on State Highway 1077 to end of the black top. Continue on the caliche road and follow the park signs to the park headquarters.

This was an awesome loop through Hill Country State Natural Area. I opted to add an extra mile by heading up to the top of West Peak Overlook. I HIGHLY recommend doing this if you have the energy, the views are excellent! That makes the whole loop about 8.5 miles, which is definitely a lot if you also include the Good Luck Trail option. All in all beautiful views, great trails, great length, super fun!

There are plenty of trails of different levels in this hiking pattern. However, there are additional loops that connect along the way some are easier while others may be more challenging. This I s what makes the very good to come back to. It is a very beautiful park with not much other hikers however plenty of nature. The trails are sometimes covered by trees and other times you will be in direct sunlight. Bring plenty of water, have a great hike

We arrived and decided to do the Medina Loop trail. Perfect for us.

I had a lovely morning all by myself on this trail, saw several deer very close, an adorable armadillo, butterflies, lizards, and beautiful varied vegetation. The viewpoints were very nice, there is about 50/50 shade, but I definitely should have brought more than 2 liters of water!

Beautiful spot! We hiked several connected trails, at the recommendation of really enthusiastic rangers at headquarters. You'll get plenty of sun on some of the trails, so take precautions for that. I don't know if there was something wrong with the map or with us, but it wasn't clear exactly where Trail 5 went on a couple occasions, so we found alternatives that hooked us back up with 5 later. I tend to prefer to hike in Teva sandals; I'd recommend that you cover your toes a little more or bring hiking poles to help deal with the gravelly downhill portions. We saw all kinds of flora, but not much fauna. Coming from Houston, I was glad to be outside without the imminent threat of mosquitos, or the throngs of people and sounds that come with them. We spent around three hours out on the trails and only saw one other group out there. Highly recommend!

I've run this area for 2 Ultra Marathons, the Cactus Rose 50 Mile'r and the Bandera 50k. These trails are NO JOKE! Really aggressive, but, absolutely AWESOME. Plenty of hills(I call them mt. everests) and great jeep trails and flatter ground. This place is just great.
