Medina River Natural…

Beginner's Hike with NVC at Medina River

Medina River Natural Area Beginner Hike - FREE

Add to Calendar

Formerly the site of the hotly debated and ill-fated Applewhite Reservoir, 500-acre Medina River Natural Area is the first of the City's natural areas to be situated on the Southside of San Antonio. The park's namesake, the Medina River, runs lazily through the park amidst towering bald cypress and other lush vegetation.  The park's six miles of trails is ideally suited to hiking, bicycling, fishing, birding, wildlife observation and nature study.

As with all natural areas, the park is left in its natural state as much as possible to encourage native wildlife, plants, fish and insects to call it home. There is a native plant display in the park as well as an interpretive area showcasing the El Camino Real wagon trail once used by settlers.
