Bandera, Texas Map

Trails were nice and trash free. We went during the weekday and saw only 1 other person. I highly recommend printing off maps from this. The map you get at the ranger station is not much help.

Best hiking trails if you like a challenge. Definitely intense

400 acres with many different trails of different difficulties. It was a very good hike and the landscape was beautiful. My friend and I camped and hiked 12 miles and the very friendly park rangers helped us understand details of the map. I would recommend this hike to anyone.

Fun, moderate trail, that is not crowded, with good views of the valley below at higher elevation. Typical Texas Hill county fauna and terrain.

Hiked this one with my daughter some years ago. It was a pretty area, and challenging in places. My daughter chose the shortest of the mapped routes, since we were on a day trip. She learned a lot about topographic maps and what it means when the contour lines are close together that day!

My favorite park near San Antonio. It's very close and very fun park with different lengths of trails to explore. Be careful these trails enter twine or cross paths and you coukd take a wrong turn adding an hour to your hike. Bring a mspecial for sure. I especially like the elevation sign on the 5 trails going up to benches....love this. The views the trails and the feeling of wilderness is really at this park. You will feel free. I've been about 7 times now and have gone on the trail past a barn and rental on property to a long distance trail. Awesome.

Hike from second parking area then take #6 to 5b scenic overlook. It has 3 sets of benches and a elevation sign up there making the hike up a destination for lunch. You will cross over rocks and log stairs with shrubs and some trees for shade if needed. It's a short trail to top but you can make it longer coming back down by taking different turns. Take water if you do this because you can get thirsty quick.
