Government Canyon State Natural Area, Lytle’s Loop Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This is a relatively new park with more than 36 miles of trails in two areas, the Frontcountry and the Backcountry. Texas Parks and Wildlife purchased this 8600-plus-acre park in cooperation with a number of other partners, including government, nonprofit and private entities, and individuals.
It lies on the Balcones Escarpment, an area of canyons that are the easternmost boundary of the Edwards Plateau, and nearly 90 percent of the land is over the recharge zone for the Edwards Aquifer, the source of drinking water for San Antonio."
