This trail is basically a fire road for most of the mileage. There are short portions that are more Trail like. It was a great walk that measured 7.8 Miles on my gps. Temperatures were in the mid 50’s with a slight breeze and sunny. Wonderful day for a hike.

on Wolf Mountain Trail

We love hiking Pedernales often throughout the year, we just completed Wolf Mountain a couple weeks ago. The Pedernales State Park has the trail as “challenging” with steep climbs and inclined but it was a great trail and I definitely plan to go again. Not much water during this time with one bathroom on the trail. Wet wide trail or basically a un-maintenanced road for a good portion of the trail then it becomes narrow and challenging.

We stopped to view a cool spring and noticed a small herd of wild pigs in a distance as well as many signs of them on several areas of the trails especially near creek beds so I only suggest keeping an eye for their activity during anytime of day. Such amazing views definitely worth the hike up!

Pretty hike! lots of cool springs and pools along the way. A couple of overlooks. No good view of the falls though.

Good hike overall. Extremely great views. Easy going trail and lots of people.

Nice wide trail through shrubby brush. Definitely got my workout in through distance not so much through elevation change.

Just to make it clear up front, you're not going to see much water on this trail. There's one small spring and a few dry creeks, but any pictures you set of waterfalls or rock hopping are probably from the actual Pedernales Falls to the north.

This was a fine, very easy hike. Wide trails and not much elevation change. Not many views, just a lot of brush and short trees. Seems like it'd be good for mountain bikers and trail runners. As a hike it was solid but unspectacular.

Great technical trails that provide some nice views and challenging climbs.

Endlessly fascinating in terms of geology and ecology. Great place for exploration.

It’s okay! I got my exercise but the trail is more wide and out in the open. I wish there was more shade. And don’t forget, it $6 a person to get in. I completely didn’t know until I got there.

most of this is through scrubby forest, but there are some nice vistas overlooking the river.

slight incline - great views, short trail.

I visited the park some years ago and really enjoyed the Hill Country views from the trail as well as creek/river overlooks.

Kristen and I explored this state park. Fun as long as we were in water. Way too hot and dry. Trails didn't really look interesting. But twin falls is a must see. E walked down from viewing platform to get a closer look. And then followed stream down to big river. And the. Waded upriver to car bear swimming area.

Beautiful landscape but not a lot of shade once it hits about noon. Pack plenty of water.

Good little cardio hike. You will have to park further out if you are not camping. Make sure to bring a decent camera to photograph the Falls. You cannot get closer than the overlook.
