Cibolo Creek Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"A success story on ever y level, Boerne’s Cibolo Nature Center protects 100 acres of wetland and riparian forest while welcoming more than 100,000 visitors a year. Education programs are available for adults and for children, who will love the wetland boardwalk and dinosaur tracks."
--Charlie Llewellin and Johnny Molloy, 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: San Antonio & Austin (Menasha Ridge Press).
"Along the Creekside Trail, towering bald cypress trees create a canopy for singing birds and darting dragonflies. Look into the clear water of Cibolo Creek to see red-eared slider turtles and catfish. After the hike, look at the castings of the dinosaur tracks near the pavilion. This hike will even hold the interest of young hikers.Start at the trailhead located north of the visitor center. There is a pavilion and building close to the trailhead that has restrooms and a large mural-type map of the park painted on the wall. Go down a few steps and almost immediately cross a bridge, then head south onto the Woodlands Trail. There is a reclaimed pocket prairie to the right containing big bluestem grass, switchgrass, and Indian grass."
--Keith Stelter, Best Easy Day Hikes: San Antonio (Falcon Guides).
"There are trails through four types of habitat here—marsh, prairie, creek, and woodlands—and our route passes through all of them."
--Melissa Gaskill, Best Hikes with Dogs: Texas Hill Country & Gulf Coast (The Mountaineers Books).
