Old Baldy is 1,849 feet up a steep half-mile climb of rugged back country in Garner State Park in Concan, Texas. I would recommended someone be in somewhat decent physical condition because of the angles, slopes, rock climbing, tree roots, and the Texas heat. Watch your ankles, wear good solid shoes, and follow the yellow footprints. Most of the trail is shaded with Mesquite and I believe Cypress trees. However, at times, there is no shade. The reward at the end is awesome! The valley overlooking Garner State Park and the Frio River.  I took several photos along my hike. I hope you enjoy the photos and visit Garner someday too.

 

Nestled about 90 miles west of San Antonio is one of Texas’s best state parks. It was once a secret, but no longer as the crowds can get quite large on weekends and holidays. It has many species of wildlife, excellent trails, giant Cypress trees, and the famous crystal clear Frio River for a variety of water activities. Here are a few photos from my recent visit. Enjoy!
