This is a great trail! Well maintained and clearly marked. Shaded most of the way.

Nice trail - A couple rocky areas but a lot of shaded spots throughout. We did see a poisonous coral snake roughly 3/4 of the way up but it slithered away and left us alone.

Despite construction on Dante's Trail, it was so amazing!!! Best trail in all of Comal, Guadalupe, & Hays County.

An absolute amazing trail, however it’s very easy to get lost. My son and I were turned around quite a bit out there. I definitely recommend downloading the map and checking it frequently to ensure your on track to where you want to be. Other than that, I highly recommend. Whether your on your mountain bike or just wanting to hike it, there is plenty of shade and amazing views of Texas nature. A true gem!

Lovely trail! I got a little confused at a few junctions but was able to figure it out with the app. Rocky sometimes but did some stretches of trail running.

I enjoyed this trail! It was moderately difficult and long enough to get in a good, steady run.

A beautiful scenic trail, but VERY rocky. Definitely a good place to work on riding through short rocky climbs and switchbacks, but not great if you’re looking for leisure - if that’s your goal, hike it instead.

First to Review

Great hike. Saw many dear and even a fox. Many options to change up the route. Mostly shaded but some exposed area that were quite hot. We started in lower purgatory and went to upper purgatory where we were able to use the restroom halfway through the hike which was convenient.
