Has your doggo been lying around the house all day? Then it’s definitely time for a walk! Grab the leash and head over to San Antonio’s Phil Hardberger Park, an old dairy farm that stretches across 330 acres of land. Here you will find the pawsome Water Loop Path. Your pup will love trotting around this delightful trail.
To get to the Water Loop Path, use the park’s east
entrance. The trailhead is near the Salado Creek Building and Outdoor Classroom.
Hop on the path and follow the trail as it leads through the water cleansing
gardens. As you walk, you can learn all about the water harvesting,
filtering, and reuse in the park. All that talk about water may make your pooch
thirsty, so be sure to have some cold H2O on hand.
The Water Loop Path is only about a mile, so it’s pawfect for a mellow afternoon stroll. Your furry friend will appreciate the
opportunity to stretch their legs and breathe in some fresh air. If they are
still rearing to go, you can also take a loop around the Geology Trail. It connects
to the Water Loop Path and is .8 miles. The west side of the park has even more
trails for your pal to explore. The Savanna Loop is 1.84 miles long and the Oak
Loop Trail clocks in at .84 miles. If your doggo still has energy to burn after
hitting the trails, stop by one of the park’s off leash areas. Both sides of
the park have a doggy play zone where your pooch can let loose and run free.
Do your part to keep the Water Loop Path clean and smelling
fresh. Clean up bags can be found at the trailhead, so be sure to stoop and scoop
when necessary. Make no mistake, this trail will make your pup one happy hound!
