Great little nature trail for being right off the highway! Lots of song birds and trees. Super peaceful.

I’ve been about five times this fall /winter. It’s so beautiful with rocky inclines and flat trails. It’s always wet from what I suspect is a full ground water system. The creek is breath taking, especially at the cascade. Very few people.

Nice views of the lake. Good distance, easy hiking. However, it's a VERY confusing trail of zigs and zags.

good morning!

Pretty wooded trail. Occasionally we saw dumping sites of trash.. several old barbecue grills, and other things. Trail not marked. Every so often the path will break off with several path options, unsure which one to take each time. After awhile it’s easy to get lost. But we enjoyed the trees.

Love it. Can get a little muddy in spots but easy to avoid them. Very well maintained and clean. Usually find it all to myself❤️

It was a great moderate trail! Not very many animals, terrain varied somewhat! There were bathrooms along the trail and several picnic tables! The only downside was that it was not very well marked however, the app really helped!

Bot river house in New Braunfels 3 mos ago and checking out local hikes. City of NB shows this as 2.5 mikes, all trails aa 1.4. Since it is a loop, can anyone explain the almost 1-Mile discrepancy?

Excellent trail. not well maintained however.

My wife and I have been meaning to hike Purgatory Creek, so a few days after the rain, we went hiking. As everyone mentioned, traffic noise can be heard the closer you are to the trailhead but tapers off. The hike itself was OK...with a few lookouts along Dante’s Trail and wildlife, mainly deer, in the clearing along the trail. I thought it would be more scenic. Oh yeah, there’s still plenty of muddy areas and a swamp blocking Dante’s Trail close to the start. There are plenty of mosquitoes along the trail so make sure to apply generous amounts of bug juice.

We went after the rains and it was really too muddy. Will definitely return when it dries up! Easy access and pretty surroundings, too bad the highway noise is so near.

Nice little trail. No dramatic elevation gain and not too many people.

Come back again and again and we see something different each time. Deer, lizards, little grass snakes, a coral snake. Its awesome. Trail shared by hikers, dogs, runners and mountain bikers, but, its never busy. Tons of diversity. Smooth wide trail, rocky rooty trail, nothing but rocks rocks rocks trail, open meadow trail. It never gets old. Even has an overlook where you can sit for a minute and look at the trail below. The buzzards like to hang out on the overlook and glare at the hikers below. Bring water, there is no water in the park and while the majority of it is shaded a few sections are nothing but sun baked rock and in summer it gets HOT. There is a water fountain at the Hunters road entrance, and privies at both the Hunter and Craddock entrances. No benches within the park so be prepared to either find a nice rock to sit on of just be prepared to not stop moving. So.e sections have a very wilderness feel to them. Also, use this app. All the trails are marked but some intersections are marked a little weird and its easy to walk right past one if you're in a section that requires you to keep an eye on your footing.

Good ride with rolling hills. Apparently I went the wrong way, starting on the east side of the park with kinda steep climbs and gradual declines. several spur options. Nice tree cover. It rained last night and is a bit muddy today but not bad. Will return.

But y B.B.

A staple of respite from the grind.

I liked this little trail. There were some parts that were tough which was a nice surprise. No one else was there when I went in the middle of the day on a Monday. I got a lil lost as the signage isn't the best. I will definitely be coming back here.

it's got some distance to it don't forget to take a bottle of water or two, easy to moderate with some elevation included

easy and relaxing ,wooded and mostly shaded

easy and shaded, good for kids or nighthikes with them.

Great trails and trail markings, moderately flat and curvy. Love the intersections and alternate trail routes available. But there's a lot of road noise from the nearby highway, but only on certain sections on the trail. Bring water.

I loved running this trail. It has a lot of variety. There are wide smooth parts to very rocky areas. I enjoyed the challenge of the hills and the rugged terrain. I ended up with 9 miles at 10:40 pace to include some walking parts. I can't wait to run it again!

This trail in New Braunfels, Texas is deserving of the east rating due to the limited length and elevation change. Nonetheless, I give it five stars due to its nomenclature and charm. The trail extends up a small canyon with steep sides along a dry creek bed that it crosses several times. The setting has the appearance of a passageway for raging water during a torrential downpour. Exept for two short, bellmouth, 6 inch diameter pipes covered with lids bearing the word "water" and a surveyers pin found at one point on the trail, this place is like a little slice of state or federal park or wilderness trail dropped into the middle of a city. There are some smooth sections to the trail. There are also some rocky sections as well, some with rocks well fixed into the soil and others with loose rocks. This trail also features a very short switchback section near the top before it breaks out into the rude reality of a city neighbourhood. Trailhead is on the west side of Landa Park, a city park with many aminities. In close proximinity to the trailhead is an area of trees where, during late afternoon and early daylight evening hours whitetail deer can be fed from the palm of one's hand.

Had a great time. Ended up 13.58 miles so it was a good hike. But the trails are poorly marked

Beautiful!! Easy short hike but very rocky! The rocks give it character and beauty. Rocks were a little rough on the paws of our 2 year old fur baby (still building up his callouses on his pads) but our 5 year old fur baby had no issues. Enjoyable and fun.

Moderate level hike. Everyone we came across was friendly! The views along the hike gorgeous. We took a break down by the water, at mid way point. Trails are easy to stay on and pathways clear for good footing. Didn’t see any trash or litter. Very nice experience for our rescue dogs and not crowded for furbabies etiquette trail training. The bikers let us know they were coming, which was very nice. Definitely one of nature’s gems trail.

Can’t get enough of this trail. Not crowded at all but when you come across someone they are super nice

Easy trails with lots of shade. Don’t forget bug spray, you will get eaten up by mosquitoes!

Ran Dante's Loop there and back starting at Lower Purgatory. Tripped and fell 7 times, mostly on the upper portion. Too many roots and too rocky. Even if I didn't trip and fall, I couldn't enjoy the scenary because of the concentration the trail requires. Not what I am personally looking for with trail running. I might run the Lower portion again but not Upper. It makes for a fine hike though.
