Location: Cibolo Nature Center

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 6.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: N/A

Comments: The Nature Center is a unique experience in that it's not really a hiking challenge but a learning experience. In just a few miles you can visit four distinct eco-systems in the same park. On the day I went the weather was cool and cloudy making for a very enjoyable time. I think there was a local school bus or two with quite a few children. This detracted from the peace and solitude but who am I to deny children the opportunity to learn about the environment and how to protect it?? I'll be returning to the Center in the summer, then again in the fall and winter just to see the changes in flora and fauna. It's also just a few short miles down the road (Hwy 46) from the Honey Creek Preserve and Guadalupe River State Park.
