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!

Trail crosses several dry creek beds covered with football size rocks that make it difficult to find a decent line. Easy to get lost, because trails are unmarked and overgrown. Wear pants or long socks. Could be great, just needs some work.

It was a nice hike with shaded areas and sunny areas and saw some deers along the way. Also, got a little lost on the trail but eventually found the right path.

First time here, it was pretty rocky and up hill in the beginning. Got to a nice down slope but also very rocky was afraid to open it up and slip on rocks. Hit a few flat spots saw pairs of deer three different locations. They looked at me like, " Ya list buddy?"

I liked the trail, but it’s not clearly marked about halfway and I got lost. I turned back but altogether I enjoyed it. I even got to see a doe and her baby deer pass right in front of me, so that was awesome!

Lots of other side trails. Tucked in a neighborhood yet felt outside of the city. Make sure to use some sort of mosquito deterrent. We enjoyed seeing lots of wildflowers, butterflies and caves.

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...
