This park is a great opportunity to hike through the woods without having a long drive out of the city. The trails are wooded, moderately rugged and somewhat hilly.

This is one of my favorite parks. Over the years they have added more trails so there are many options for hiking. You can choose super easy to more moderate hiking. The back area trails are pretty hot in the summer, but still good parts to hike. Some of the trails are better shaded so they are still relatively comfortable... More

I was in San Antonio for business, staying on the Northwest side of town. I wanted an outdoor exercise option and found this gem. The trails are well marked and graded accurately. The scenery is nice and the foot traffic minimal. Great place for a trail hike!

This is a lovely park near San Antonio where you can stroll along paved paths through wonderful live oak and other kinds of trees (mesquite, maybe?). Unfortunately it was quite chilly the day we chose to go there and so we only walked for about half an hour. ON a better day I'd like to go back and explore it... More

My oldest son took me here twice in the same weekend. There is a nice mix of paved walkways and trails. Many of the trails have gravel to improve the traction and prevent erosion. It should be easy to find a trail to suit your hiking difficulty. Maps and signs are throughout the park to keep you from getting lost.... More

Beautiful location to easily get your 10k steps accomplished. You might want to take a walking stick. Some of the places are pretty rocky so you need to watch your step. Trails are well maintained. You feel like you are out of the city completely when you go walking here

I hike thru Friedrich Wilderness Park 2-3 times a week. It's beautiful, well-maintained and has a network of different trails of all difficulties (from paved walking paths to Level 4 trails that will have you huffing and puffing). You can pop in to Friedrich and, whether you want to hike for 15 minutes or two hours, at a leisurely stroll... More

There are plenty of other better parks in San Antonio. Avoid this one at all costs. First off there are only a few parking spaces and many are forced to park on the street. There isn't much of a shoulder and San Antonio police are known to give parking tickets. Secondly, water and facilities are lacking here. Finally dogs are... More

This is a nice Hill Country park to hike. The rough path is full of cool looking rocks and the cedar trees are twisted in interesting ways. The view is more brown than green but if you like the hill country this is a small, easy park to hike.... just beware of snakes and fire ants.
