The terrain varies and there is a lot of unspoiled Texas territory here to explore. This land has sat undisturbed by people since 1993 when it was purchased. It has been in development for recreational use since then.

Wear hiking boots or shoes with a lot of ankle support! Great trail!

I agree, this trail is very rocky and lots of loose gravel so definitely wear ankle supportive shoes/boots. Hats off to bikers on this trail as it will be bumpy ride. I hiked this trail until it connected with the south portion of the Far Reaches trail. The Wildcat Canyon trail itself is lightly traversed and narrower than the JJR Trail with lots of vegetation. Great hike and logged 8.6 miles to-fro the visitor center.

Ok to be fair, it’s a great hiking trail. But, my boyfriend and I went mountain biking today and it was ridiculously brutal. He’s an avid biker and very talented and even admitted it wasn’t the most pleasant ride. We started on Joe Johnston (nice, easy, populated) to see the Dino tracks, then headed to Twin Oaks, which seemed to be tons of large rocks uphill. We found ourself hopping off just to make it up the hills so turned back to JJ. Then we headed to wildcat and finished on the valley trail to the refresh trail. Like I said, brutal haha. Ride at your risk!

Very rocky. Some technical areas, gradual elevations, plenty of shade. Proper footwear is essential; certainly prefer my Oboz over my Saucony Peregrine for this one. Overall, nice trails.

Came for the dinosaur tracks but the far backcountry trails were closed. Still an enjoyable hike along other trails; nothing too technical from a hiking standpoint but the trails are very natural, which in San Antonio means rocky so come prepared.

The moderate classification is appropriate. There are some technical areas with gradual elevation climbs. but doesn't require you to stop and slowdown and climb up rocky points in the trail. There are a few good views and is a quiet trail for a 6+ mile trail run. Might have to do this loop backwards.

Technical areas but not difficult. Pretty run and less crowded until you are on the main trail that leads to dinosaur tracks.

It was a great moderate trail, but cost $6 each for wife and I to walk it. Trail walking shouldn't cost.

This is s great trail and one of my favorites. However, dogs ARE NOT allowed on this trail or on any trail in the back country at Government Canyon State Natural Area.

This trail is not at all easy; I dismounted my MTB and walked many of the sections.

Ok for hiking, was going to mountain bike this but it was too rocky seems like you'd have to dismount and hike it more than you'd be able to actually ride the trail. The decents weren't worth the climb.

One decent climb towards the end (when heading east) of this short trail.

Did a 9.6 mile hike here with my fellow Wounded Warriors. It was an awesome hike. Did it carrying 42 lbs of military gear. Good times! The trail was easy with an elevation gain of 646 ft of elevation gain. There are dinosaur tracks here too!!! First time I ever saw those with my own eyes! Oh there's an option for a "harder" hike if you do it in reverse. You just climb more at first.

This is a real nice trail. Starts by following the "Recharge trail" and picks up "Far Reaches" up to a couple of real nice overlooks and then meets up with "Wildcat Canyon Trail" down to "Joe Johnson Route" and back to the trail head. It has some good elevation changes and different terrain. Need to watch out for the people on bicycles. there are some blind corners.

There are plenty of trails to ride here, some closed to mountain bikes. All together government canyon ranges from 1 to 7 in single track difficulty and had more than enough bike trails to keep you pedaling for a couple of hours. Overall government canyon is quite the ride, and perfect for early morning late evening. I would recommend you have a little more experience and that you be cautious of runners and hikers.
