It is always such a homecoming for me to return to the banks of the Pedernales River. I have always had a real special place in my heart for this park. On a hot day it would be foolish to drive all the way out here and not go fall into the river for a while. I do it every time. The trail here is mostly an old dirt road that runs out of the south side of the main park area and winds back to a couple of springs. The kind with water, not the bouncy ones. Great places to take a break and snap a few shots of your bike. Take your shoes off and dip them in the water when you can. Admire the scenery. Don’t be in a hurry; this is a place for relaxing, smelling the prickly pears and all that. After the road, you can connect with a couple of miles of fairly serious singletrack and go up on the ridge (they call it Wolf Mountain). The climbing is substantial and tricky because most of the trail surface is loose rock or exposed rock, and there’s a place or two that just might be scary to an old guy like me.
