The Wildcat Canyon Loop is a moderate hiking trail 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. Mountain bikers are permitted on this trail. The park says this hike "begins at the Backcountry Trailhead; leads to Wildcat Canyon Trail, to Sendero Balcones Trail, to Recharge Trail, to JJR Trail, and back. This rugged route takes you through forest canopy, over limestone outcroppings, and down the edge of the Balcones Escarpment." Make to keep an eye peeled for the endangered Golden Cheeked Warbler.
