This is a great beginner trail. The changes in elevations were minimal and the covering was enough to provide enough shade when needed. There are also benches a line the way for people to sit and relax. The parking was secure and there are bathrooms at the starting point.

It was super quiet and peaceful. Easy gravel trail for most of the walk. Bear trail was a little more rocky and off road. But no pets!

We have walked this trail many times as our kids grew older. Always a favorite as are many of the trails in SA. Adding the Upper Trail to the hike was a good thing but there could be a hazard after significant rainfall.

Easy walk with my teenage son. Surface is mixed pavement (broken) and gravel. Several good “photo op” points. Would do it again.

Back loop (bear grass trail) is more natural and slightly more strenuous. Red Oak is paved and gentle.

Really nice trail. Lower part is easy going and would be perfect for running. Upper loop is nice to get off a well kept path, lots of rocks and nice loop to break a sweat. Not crowded.

Quick hike. Good heart rate increase and elevation.

Recommend for a great trail run - less than moderate for hiking. Very quiet - not a lot of people!

Surprisingly decent intensity. Very quiet and nice for a solid hike near San Antonio when you may not have a lot of time for a long one.

Most of Red Oak trail is ADA Level 1. The smaller Bear Grass trail is the only "hiking" part. There are some nice areas, but they go by quickly.
