Friedrich Wilderness Park reviews

Absolutely great park for any level of experience! Different levels of difficulty, maps everywhere, and handicap accessible! Absolutely awesome hiking experience! more »
The best hiking place in San Antonio! It’s open from 7:00 AM to sunset and the police will be waiting for you if you are late! The tracks are well maintained, and based on weather situation they close or changed it sometimes. There are also a restroom and a picnic area close to the parking space. I used to go to this park almost for the past four years and I suggest you go early in the morning if you would like to beat the crowd. Also, you will experience a nicer weather!
This is a large wilderness park. The trails are well marked. Part of the trails are wheelchair accessible. It was very hot and most of the forest noise came from the Cicadas. The woods were dry which is pretty usual for south TX during this time of year. If you go during the summer it is best to go early in the AM. All in all, it was a nice park.
