Notes

The Far Reaches and Twin Oak Loop is a moderate hike in Government Canyon State Natural Area near San Antonio, Texas. This hike is kid friendly and dog friendly, but your furry kids have to be on leash. The park says this hike "begins at the Backcountry Trailhead. A short hike up the JJR Trail, take the Recharge Trail to Far Reaches Trail, to Sendero Balcones Trail north, to Twin Oaks Trail, to JJR Trail, and back. This route showcases many of the features that make the natural area so special: geology, diverse flora, history, and stunning vistas." Make to keep an eye peeled for the endangered Golden Cheeked Warbler. There is camping available in Government Canyon State Natural Area.
