Hamilton Pool Preserve Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This is a wonderful hike through a unique geological area that could be a canyon in Colorado rather than the Texas Hill Country. The magnificent grotto is one of the top
natural wonders of the state."
--Charlie Llewellin and Johnny Molloy, 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: San Antonio & Austin (Menasha Ridge Press).
Great little hike for a Saturday morning. Kind of busy but you can find some trails that are isolated. Watch out for mountain bikers.
This is a great set of trails within the city, because you get to choose paved or off-road. I chose the latter, and it was a nice experience in the wooded trails. The trails vary between being close to regular roads and the parts where you feel alone.
My only caution is be careful about flash flood watches and warnings! There was obvious evidence of a recent flash flood through the area with how the grasses and smaller growth was flattened against the ground, so be careful! Other than that, it is a great escape from the city.
Easy walking on asphalt trails. Trails are shared with bicycles, and people walking dogs. Friendly encounters with other walkers.
