A fun trail. They have placed a nice cushy cedar mulch on some parts of the trail. There is some loose rock on the other parts. Lots of souvenirs from doggy lovers are strewn about the park. Don't despair, your efforts will be rewarded. If you like concrete, you'll love the amazing views of urban sprawl and the huge quarry scar surrounding the park. Do this one quick, before more enhancements are added to the area....

This is a good little park. Good trails for a short day hike and close to the city. Good area to break in boots and condition for longer hikes. When I went there was not alot of wildlife to see. Alot of people making alot of noise join you on your hike. Power lines and houses ruin the views of San Antonio. In all it's a hike worth taking. It's quick and close if you live in San Antonio. I wouldn't go for the view though.
