Description

If your pooch is itching at the collar to go for a hike, then it’s time for a trip to St. Edward’s Park. This woofderful green space is home to two furrific trails. Here your leashed pooch can get some much needed exercise while enjoying the lovely scenery. Sounds like a pawsome plan!

When you come to this park, you have two trails to choose from. If your pup has the energy and you have the time, you could even hike both!  For a more family friendly experience, opt for the Creek Trail. It begins at the park’s trailhead and heads west. When you reach the junction, take a right and follow the trail through open prairies. When you see a sign that says “4-Way,” take another right. From here, the trail parallels Bull Creek. If your pooch gets too hot, they can go for a swim in the refreshing water. Continue your hike past sheer rock walls, waterfalls, and various trees and shrubs. You know you’ve hit the end of the trail when you see the sign that says “Turnaround.”

Hill Trail is the other option. It begins at the same trailhead and immediately crosses Bull Creek. Don’t worry, there are rocks to help you across. From here, the trail climbs up limestone bluffs until you and your pooch have furrific views of Bull Creek and the rest of the park. As you continue west, there is more incline and more pawsome overlooks. Eventually, you come to a junction. If you want to add some mileage to your hike, head right for an additional loop. If not, take a left and follow the trail back to the trailhead. Even though there is a creek nearby, bring plenty of drinking water for both you and your furry pal, as well as clean-up bags.

Make no mistake, your pupster will love hiking the St. Edward’s Park Trails!
