This trail was awesome! There a course for canyoning, that eventually about a mi or so in leads right to the river and Upper River Trail. Will definitely be coming back and they are waiving park fees right now during Covid, otherwise I hear it’s hard to get reservations here during normal season

This trail consists of a series of mountain bike trails that wind through the upper portion of the park. It’s a nice walk and easy to follow. The views are good, but not great, typical Texas hill country scenery. We completed 8 miles that did not include a few of the black diamond portions of the trail. We only saw one other person along the way. The easiest section and less scenic portion of the trail is to the left of the trailhead at the parking lot. Watch for mountain bikers and be prepared to yield if you’re on foot. If you’re on a bike, pay attention to the signs marking the difficulty of the portion of the trail.

We hiked the Lower and Upper River trails. Absolutely beautiful as the trail progresses. We happened to be blessed with great weather which made the day more enjoyable. my favorite part of the Upper trail was actually past the mapped portion. Once you get to the big rocks, keep going for a treat.

We hiked the green trail. Once we found the trailhead, it was a great hike. The Upper River Trail was gorgeous and a fun hike. Highly recommend

Amazing trail! We hiked down to the river then up a couple miles until we found the trail that takes you up to canyon cave. Not for the faint of heart during August, the weather averaged 98 degrees. Bring plenty of water. Once you get to the trail that takes you up to Canyon cave (also known as “sex cave” by some rock climbers & im not sure why), the trail up to the cave is very shaded, lots of lovely vegetation, a rock wall of ferns and peaceful river flowing through. Spots where the water gathers enough the wade in, very refreshing. The cave is really pretty and a nice reward at the end of the hike. We always love when it feels like you made a discovery at the end of a hike and this was worth it. All in all probably a good 5 miles round trip but there are different way points. We weren’t rocking climbing down into the canyon so we parked, hiked down to river then up to the canyon. Worth it!

I am a big lover of Barton Creek Greenbelt in Austin, Tx. But this lovely Preserve got me even more. The amazing wildflowers, well maintained main trails (there is no way I was, ahem, trailblazing), various regions to explore were terrific. If you want fields of wildflowers? Check. Interesting paths with plaques of information regarding hill country flora and fauna? Check. An alternative to Hamilton pool? Check. An endless amount of trails for your mind to go “aaaaahhhh” and your feet to be very angry for a few days? Check. Rock climbing? Check. Good elevation hikes and gorgeous vistas? Check. The only downside was the amount of trails not on the map, but I like to venture out in no mans land anyway. The staff were incredibly helpful, even came around again to be sure I checked out the Kelly Prehn overlook to see the 10 story Cypress trees. It was a 70 minute drive to get there, completely worth it. I’ll be visiting again next week for Progue Canyon. ❤️

Take the green trail for a more beautiful view of the Perdernales River

The hiking trail along the river is foot traffic only and allows for amazing vistas through the canyon. No cards accepted so bring cash. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen—absolutely necessary. Important to note the red highlighted trail shown here on this app is mountain biking only—no foot traffic. The black dotted trail shown here is foot traffic or multi-use. Ask for park map at guardhouse.

Great for a day hike, nice swimming near by, beautiful scenery. There are some areas with water, large boulders, and rock climbing as well. Love this park!

Great hiking opportunity, a lot of boulders, I suggest some sort of gloves and watch out for poison ivy. But a fantastic, beautiful hike!!!

Liked rock climbing trail best so far. Lots to explore! Will definitely go back! Reasonable entry fee into park for day pass. $10, cash only!

The outside loop gives you some tough to find mileage, with a few opportunities to explore beyond the trail. Cool winter day is best, as there is little shade.

Loved it although wish there was more shade

Beautiful area - we did 6 miles in multi-use, but some areas not well marked. Lots of sun exposure - bring water! There's an entrance fee, but restrooms are nice.

Green trail along the water is excellent and they keep it mowed down. Climbing area is not easy.

Awesome hike today -13 miles on the multiuse trail that loops outside the mountain bike trails, dipping down to the river and climbing area at the end. Beautiful springs running strong after last weekend's rain. Loved the Hogge trail loop and the Pogue Canyon/Kelly Prehn overlooks - just wish the trail went down into that beautiful canyon with the stream!

great views

This was a hike that my wife and I went on for our anniversary. It was a fun time. Pretty easy can be a lot harder depending on how adventurous you are. The river was a beautiful blue green. Very clear as well. Loved it planning on doing it again with our 4 year old daughter.

If you're going for hiking, skip it. $10 to walk a dirt road with zero scenery.

This trail system was so much fun! Don't be fooled by the "Easy" level. They have a series of trails in Milton Reimer's Ranch Park ranging from green (which was indeed very easy) to a supposed 15-20mi loop rated as advanced (black). They didn't feel that long at all though...but you could just loop it if you want to ride longer. The blues and blacks are a blast with some pretty technical portions intermixed with smooth trails. Worth it for me!

I really loved all of the fun options Reimer's has to offer. We hiked the bike the trail for the challenge and then dropped down to the river trail for more scenic hiking. The bike trail is quite easy as far as hiking goes but is nice and long to give you a challenge. we went during the Spring and the wild flowers were GORGEOUS. I would not suggest going during the summer, you'll melt. The river trail was much more picturesque and offered a bit of climbing. I'm definitely going back for rock climbing and swimming. It's a fun place!
