NaturaLu Excursions: 52 Hike Challenge 2021: Hike 7

Hey Adventurers!

I hope you had a great weekend! Did anyone go on an exciting hike? If so, leave a comment below!

I have been resting and doing a lot for my Life Coaching business this week (it’s only Tuesday- lol) so I am a bit behind on getting this post out, but here it is!

Sunday was another beautiful day in San Antonio! We ventured the local favorite, Friedrich Wilderness Park. I have been here several times, and I love that it is so much easier each time I go! We completed exactly 5 miles! We took the Entry trail to N. Main Loop Trail to Juniper Ridge to Vista Loop to Restoration Way, then Mill Pass back to Restoration and Main Loop.

From Vista Loop

If you are looking for some inclines or flat areas, this park has it all. The most popular trail spot is Vista Loop. It is a gorgeous area to see all the trees and the hillside in the distance. It also has a great spot to stop and meditation. Most of the trails are pretty rocky and also have a lot of tree roots, so be careful with your footing. Overall, this is a great park to test your endurance if you are still new to hiking.

The surrounding area is growing commercially and residentially, and parking can be trouble in late morning and midday. I have always gone in the morning by 8am and sometimes still have to park on the street. So if you ever venture here, plan to get there early!

Until the next adventure…
