Enjoy spectacular views and breathtaking scenery along many miles of trails. Experience a different side of Garner State Park as you get a bird’s-eye view of the Frio River and stunning geological features. STAYING SAFE KNOW YOUR LIMITS. Prepare for sun and heat. Wear sunscreen, insect repellent and appropriate clothing/hiking shoes. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER. Your body quickly loses fluids when you’re on the trail. TRAIL DIST TIME DIFFICULTY DESCRIPTION OLD ENTRANCE ROAD .84 mi. 20 min. Easy Open to hikers and bikers, this paved road is a good place to look for endangered golden-cheeked warblers in spring. DONOVAN TRAIL .71 mi. 30 min. Moderate This trail provides access to some of the best examples of habitats found in the Hill Country. BRIDGES TRAIL .65 mi. 45 min. Challenging Use caution on the loose rocks and steep terrain. Your reward for the hard work is a great view of Old Baldy at Painted Rock Overlook and the shade of the giant Ashe juniper tree. CRYSTAL CAVE TRAIL .62 mi. 45 min. Challenging Challenging in several locations, the trail provides access to one of the park’s natural wonders. BLINN RIVER TRAIL .53 mi. 20 min. Easy Take a nice stroll along the Frio River, and keep your eyes open for wildlife that make their homes here. OLD BALDY TRAIL .53 mi. 45 min. Challenging This is a short trail to get a bird’s-eye view of the Frio River canyon, but it’s very steep and rocky. Watch where you step! FOSHEE TRAIL 1.66 mi. 1 hr. Moderate This trail transects the mountains of Garner State Park. Many trails intersect the Foshee Trail, giving hikers access to most of the back country area of the park. ASHE JUNIPER TRAIL 2.49 mi. 1.5 hrs. Moderate This trail provides vistas of the backside of Old Baldy and access to our newly developed Youth Group Camping Area. OLD HORSE TRAIL .48 mi. 30 min.

Easy Experience the vastness of the Frio Canyon while hiking or biking this relatively flat trail with mountains in view from all vantage points. Bring a quart of water per hour of activity. TELL OTHERS WHERE YOU’LL BE. If possible, avoid exploring alone. Tell someone where you are going and when you plan to return. WEAR A HELMET. When biking, check with park HQ to match the ride to your skill level. Wear a helmet to protect yourself in case of a crash. POTENTIALLY HARMFUL PLANTS AND ANIMALS LIVE HERE. You’ll see them more easily if you stay on trails. YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO CONNECT. It’s a good idea to take along a cell phone and GPS unit, but don’t count on them. TRAIL ETIQUETTE Trash your trash. Keep the park natural. Pack out all of your trash and Leave No Trace. Leave feeding to nature. Feeding wild animals will make them sick and more likely to cause harm to people. Take only memories and pictures. Please don’t disturb or remove any of the park’s plants, animals or artifacts. Keep pets on leashes for their safety, and to protect wildlife. Campfires are permitted only in designated rings and not in the primitive camping area due to potential for ground scarring and wildfires.
