Would have been a great trip except that there were kids on one of the ridge lines throwing rocks at hikers. One almost hit my father in law.

Too many rocks. Felt like I was going to twist an ankle if I didn't pay more attention to every step rather than being able to enjoy the view. The mountain laurels were blooming so it smelled great!

Panther Canyon Trail is located on the west side of street across from the north section of Landa Park. The site of the trailhead is first marked by the presence of Comal Springs, the largest springs in Texas and the Southwest. The trail is very nice and mostly shaded. There will be rocky stretches along with dry creek crossings as you will notice old footbridges having been removed. Rather than just turning around at the end, you have the opportunity to go up one side of the canyon that will head you back down to the creek bed area after a short distance. The trail was surprisingly quiet given it is next to the park and surrounded by residential area. Note: There is no lake features or buildings within the trail area as pictures of these are part of the park. Also did not come across any overlook as you are within the canyon walls.
