Good for a family stroll after a visit to the Alamo or a date night. Be kind to the homeless and take some spending money. Biggest detractor is if you are pushing a stroller or are not as mobile, finding ramps or in service elevators to change levels to cross bridges becomes a challenge.

we got there early, GPS took us to the deer loop spot and we started walking realized we we're back at the car quick. had to download map to know where to go. signs got confusing at times. but it was kept up well. it was nice. my daughter and I went and all of the holes were friendly on the trails. the view from the top is awesome. felt great. definitely would go back.

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

I run here from my house which is a mile away. It is a great place to get some hills and enjoy the beautiful scenery up to the top where you there is a great view of the city which is a nice reward for your climb. There are benches at the top and water as well if you want to sit and enjoy the view for a spell.

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.

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.

Super easy trail with plenty of boardwalks. Lots of butterflies/moths and their caterpillars. Take the Palmetto Interpretive Trail that joins the Ottine. W Lots of swamp!

Super easy trail with some nice benches to watch the lake. Takes you by a church. Watch for snakes as we saw several in the lake. May 2018

Great trail for kids/family of all ages. Lots of chances to do part or all of the trail. Love the boardwalks and the palmettos.

Remarkably handsome for being smack dab in civilization so-called. There is a striking variety of greenery and, if you hear a rustle in the forest, chances are decent it is a rabbit. The paved incline is steep enough for a nice gain that given its short distance you can master in short order. As others have mentioned, there is a network of side trails that take you up forest gains that are more challenging than the paved incline. The highlight, though, is 'The Hill,' a jagged rise exposed to the sun that hits you hardest as you are reaching your limit. The proper way to master this climb is to repeat it so there is no doubt who goes out on top. Just do not try this after a heavy lunch.

Superb trails for thinking, as there a few elevation changes, rocks, or other obstacles to divert your concentration. Deep forests, once in a while feral hogs early in the morning, a few snakes, a turtle or two, geese at certain times of the year, squirrels talking trash, hawks, you get the picture. The adjacent property has cattle (who indeed are lowing) and horses, who do find their way onto the trails from time to time. The trails themselves are very well maintained with crushed granite, packed soil, or sand (on the San Marcos river trail). Come off season in December-February and feel the open winter air.

This route made me feel like a tourist in my own city. I’ve been here for years now and never knew there was a Korea/Vietnam war memorial, I never walked through the King William district, and the Guenther House is one of my favorite places for lunch now.

I am so used to the touristy area of the Riverwalk, but the Riverwalk in the King William district was very peaceful and serene. I went off the route several times because there was so much going on today I did this walk. During this route, I made it into a 8 mile pub crawl and it was a blast. Met great people and even though it took a lot longer than I expected, I enjoyed every minute.

I highly recommend this route to anyone.

beautiful but very rocky so don't go if you have weak ankles! :-)

I have used this trail for hiking several times now, I have yet to be disappointed. The last time there I had my grandkids join me and we had a great morning.. walking , talking , watching the birds, ducks along the San Antonio River. I would recommend this trail to all... family friendly.!

Kids had a lot of fun. Different rocks to climb on and explore. Beautiful arid climate in early March.

Rocky trail following the dry creek bed. This would be impassible during wetter times. Trail is not as long as listed due to “private trail” signs near the end.

This is a nice trail....maybe a little rocky in spots....but it is well maintained and clean. My daughter and I enjoyed the variety of rock formations and the types of trees. There were a few squirrels but no deer or other wildlife. Some birds were beginning to start their spring vocalizations but in general it was very quiet. A good hike

If you're going to do any "urban hiking", this walk plus the Missions Trail, and a few other downtown areas is some of the best. It may be easy going, but you'll get a whole lot of it.

May be the most beautiful hiking trail in Texas. The trails are challenging but pretty short in terms of time. Take your time and enjoy the views!

Love to go here when I have hill repeats on my training schedule or when I want a hilly 3-5 mile run that is challenging and gets my heart rate up. Nice scenery :)

Decent walking trail thaht's mostly flat and paved. The signs indicate bicycles are allowed, but I wouldn't recommend it since it's just a short pedestrian pathway. There are outdoor workout stations positioned about every quarter mile or so and there's an outdoor classroom near the library. The watchtower at the top of the 75 ft hill isn't that exciting.

Beautiful and quiet. Moderately difficult due to the incredible incline.

Such a fun and beautiful park!

Perfect. Dogs on leash are welcome. Many trails.
