Hiking by San Antonio? on 03/11/2013 11:12:31 MDT Print View

I'm taking a business trip to San Antonio in mid-May and wondered if anyone knew of good hiking close by? I'll have my wife with me so no overnights--just day hiking. Thanks.

I think your best bets would be Lost Maples State Park and Enchanted Rock. My family did the rock without me and enjoyed it.

If your wife is along you might consider doing the river walk in San Antonio as an evening activity. Apparently its the place to go if you visit there. I never did it but my dad used to take my mom on dates there.

If you can drive an hour and some change Pedernales Falls State Park is a good place. The drive itself would offer a nice tour of the hill country, along with a hike making for a pretty pleasant day. And in mid-May the area (usually) isn't scorching hot yet!

Natural ridge caverns is close, cool, and unique.

I live in Fredericksburg. Enchanted rock is very unique and the wife will love main street Fredericksburg. Trust me.

Lost maples is best in the fall. On the drive to the park you will not think you are in Texas.

Government canyon is close and a good taste of the hill country.

Been in San Antonio 57 years and never saw more snakes in may than in any other month...

Pedernales state park has been hit harder by the drought than the other parks.

We've had good rain in enchanted rock area.
