Drive up to the Falls/Duck Pond area. The pond is pretty dry (and no ducks). The Falls trails is worth the trip. Just be careful and use your GPS and park map. The trail is not marked well at all. No color dots and very few signs.

trail is very easy to falls, hiking along river and over rocks was awesome and great hike.

Last month I was visiting San Antonio for a few days and I wanted to go hiking so I had to find something close to the city and this place was perfect. I try to stay away from "easy" hikes since I enjoy a hike a lot more when it's challenging. However, the pictures I found online from this place were so beautiful I had to give it a shot. And am I glad I did... There was a thunder storm going on that day but that did not stop me, I was prepared. The place was lightly trafficked which made my hike that much more enjoyable. There are several trails around the falls, with different difficulty levels. Once you're in the park there is no cellphone service so be aware of that. Beautiful place, so glad I checked it out.

My husband and two daughters (4 and 7) came for a day hike for the first time on Easter. The views are totally worth the $12. We first walked the Falls Trailhead and spent hours exploring the rocks and water. An easy walk could definitely be made more difficult in that area. Lots of lizards, and people were catching a lot of decent sized fish. We then went to Twin Falls and spent over an hour trying to find the fall, which we never did. We were not alone in this. The trail was not clearly marked, so come prepared with coordinates to find it. Overall, a great day hiking. Also very clean restrooms and adequate parking.
