This location is best known for over 40 miles of multi-use trails so there should be plenty of opportunity to go hiking and mountain biking. If you do plan on taking the bike out for a spin you should know that there could be lots of climbing ahead of you so be sure to talk to park staff to get some ideas about where to go. They also have a relatively flat 2.5 mile trail. This natural area has fishing and swimming opportunities at designated locations along the West Verde Creek. There are also a number of campsites along the creek. If you prefer, there is a 4 bedroom lodge that also is available if you are coming out with a group. They allow tents at the lodge as well. Horseback riding is permitted and the park is home to Black-Capped Vireos and Golden-Cheeked Warblers. You could bring your own horse or rent a steed from one of the liveries in Bandera. Information regarding horse rentals may be obtained by calling the park as well. You should consider checking out Spring Falls and the Hermit’s Shack while you are here. Bring your own water. Pets on a leash are OK and a lodge is available for your use. From Bandera, take 173 south and turn right onto 1077 and follow the signs.
