This is a very nIce paved and clean trail next to the river. A little nature walk. Easy. Great for kids or elderly.

Very friendly people. Trail is mainly alongside the river and plenty of parking.

GoLots of the described trail was closed, so took a small detour through the woods. Saw lots of whitetail deer up close. Generally pretty fearless. Also saw some other exotic things hoof stock

I wouldnt really call this a trail or "hiking", but the park is beautiful. We took a long walk with our dogs and appreciated how wide the concrete sidewalks were so we could socially diatance from other groups. Parking was easy as well.

Scenic driving

I’m sure there’s more than what I saw as far as trails. It was paved with traffic so it for sure a family park setting than actual hiking. The river however was stunning.

I discover this loop by wondering off the paved river trail in the summer to see where it went. I enjoy this couple 2.5 daily walking my dog, in town, for brief exercise and mind clearing using dirt trail with Sony rocky areas and pave trail combination, free, one small rock hopping area, about 45 minutes to complete. River scenery.

First to Review

This is an after work dog walk paved trail at a Kerrville town local park. It is mixed with paved river trail and off paved backcountry experience. I made a loop out of a local park Louise Hays Park Kerrville town area. Start paved then packed dirt off trail closer to the Guadalupe River then back on paved. This loop can be another mile by walking further on the river trail on the island and back.
