I’m surprised such a trail is within San Antonio. It’s not color coded for those who rely on it. Still very easy to navigate through. Slippery when wet!!! Trail on!!

was able to get this and a little more completed today before it got to hot. Always enjoy the trails here with the extra climbing to get some exercise in a short hike. Very necessary here in San Antonio during our long summers.
