Hills are about 300 feet in elevation.
Some are steeper than others. The Baldy trail is the steepest. See the park trail map for details of length and difficultness of each trail.
Stay on the trails. There are cliffs that are dangerous.
Leave only footsteps, take only memories.
Don't throw or dislodge rocks. There may be people below you. Be careful placing your feet. My sister lost her front tooth when a small rock dislodged from a hiker in front of her and rolled a few feet down into her face. Not a pleasant or affordable accident.
Where do we need established trails? Maybe not. Stay on the established trails and let nature recover.
Help re-establish the Blinn River Trail. Are you joining us for the Friends of Garner Trail Work Weekend?
The top of Old Baldy has a view you will remember. It's one of the steeper trails, but young and old make it to the top all the time. Watch out for the edge! Take water, a walking stick, and your camera. Look for the Baldy trailhead to begin your climb.
Well, there not many crystals to be found, but it's an example of what might be found in the Hill Country. It is a dark and cool place to visit and take a seat. Please don't stink or mark it up. Leave only your footprints. Watch out for centipedes in the cave.
Back in the sixties and before, this was the only way to enter and leave the park. There are two vistas to view from and lots of color to be found around the first week of December. After recent rains when the ground is muddy, this paved road is a frequent alternate route for the Friends of Garner hayrides.
This trail connects the Old Entrance to Shady Meadows Campground. This trail is less steep than many of the trails at Garner and follows a draw up between US83 and the old entrance road.
This trail is about 3 miles long and circles the north end of the park. It begins not far from the Visitor Center and ends at the River Crossing Campground. This is the route most often taken by the hayrides.
