Good trail to use during the week. Not a bad little hike. Trail could stand to be marked better. Starts off up hill then right and across a rocky area. Cool sink hole if you look for it. Can be really muddy after rain. Hence the name Mud Creek!

On Saturday 12/01/2018 I visited Mud Creek Park in San Antonio and found it to be a beautiful wild land/urban interface life raft in the midst of an ocean or suburban sprawl. On a day when another nearby park with concrete and old blacktop hiking trails was full of suburbanites there were few in Mud Creek. It has a completely different nomenclature for a completely different demographic. The trails though not great in distance are completely suitable for hiking, trail running and trail biking. Distance can be built by covering some of the ground more than once. Some are in the open and some are in woods with twists and turns, rocks (both fixed and loose) and roots. I have uploaded two pics of open area trail, two of wooded area trail, and two of local wildlife. If you live in or if you visit San Antonio this small park is worth seeking out.

Most trails were a basic level 3 and covered by trees, however there are a lot of open trails in the sunshine and much warmer. Even though it is near homes there is nature and deer and still fairly quiet. A lot of new trails to take and many bike trails. Its not bad if you just want to get a few miles of basic hiking in early in the day.

It’s a nice trail, too rocky for running. Great for a trail hike! Lots of deer and wild flowers

There are some pretty great trails in here if you take the time to figure out the loop. Makes for a great hike, trail run, or mountain bike ride.

This is a great liitle park for walking. Some of the trails are nice and shady and some parts are really rocky and in the full sun. Even in the middle of September we saw quite a few wildflowers. I would not classify this trail as moderate but easy.

Could use some trail marking. Some of the trails were washed away or brush is to high.
I would say it is more suitable as MBT over hiking

Has potential to be a good trail but the mosquitos were RELENTLESS and the cockleburs were too numerous for our dog to ignore. Had to carry her for a while to get through a certain section that was unbelievably bad. I pulled 84 out of my shoes! I might try this trail one more time in the dead of winter when we've had a freeze and I know both bugs and burs are dead.

LOVE this trail, well marked, many tangents, and goes through foresty areas straight outa a movie! Would have given it 5 stars but there's some poison oak :/

To the 1 star reviewer: it's muddy and rocky... really!? It's called MUD CREEK, and that was listed in the description...

I have just started trail running, and I really enjoyed this one. I thought it was a great option for those just starting out with trail running. My friend and I added about two miles of road running in the middle (ran a loop along the feeder road of 1604). We ended up with a total of 5 miles.

Too many walkers with unleashed dogs and none of them pick up their dog feces.
