About This Trail

[Total: 5    Average: 2.8/5]

The 2-hour drive west of San Antonio is worth it on this loop hike meandering along the Sabinal River and among some of the most concentrated numbers of maple trees in Texas! Begin hiking counter-clockwise on the Maples Trail then follow the East Trail loop around.

Also, if there are no trails in the area, the Family Trail Guide team researches trails that are family friendly in the area to insure that hikes cover all areas where Hike it Baby hikes.
