“experience nature unfold”
As you wander the trails of EMILIE AND ALBERT FRIEDRICH PARK,envision the land from the perspective of the plants,animals and other organisms that live here. To them, the park is home and community. It is a neighborhood where all living things are interdependent, with the condition of one influencing all. Think about the generations of animals which have fed on the buckeye, the oak acorns and the prickly-pear cactus. Sit under one of the ancient cedar trees. For two or three hundred years, they have witnessed the history of this community. They have witnessed the last settlements of Native Americans and the birth of a new state. Birds and insects have carried their seed to far away places. Earthworms have tilled the soil around their roots. Storms and insects have caused these trees injury, but they survive. Someday they will die and fall to the earth. Even in death they will continue to contribute to their community. Look for dead and fallen trees along the trails. Observe how they continue to serve a purpose.
If you love hiking and you are looking for a nice place to hike close to the San Antonio city center, then definitely the Friedrich Wilderness Park sounds like the ideal place to be.
Great hiking trails surrounded by serene natural landscapes, tall and old trees that offer generously cooling shades during your walk and a nice windmill are only few of the beautiful sight seeings that you will encounter while hiking in the park. Take some water with you since you will definitely need it, and in case you will want to take your kids with you please be aware that some parts are kinda steep, therefore you should be careful!
If you have great stamina and you are an experienced hiker i suggest you to choose the Level 4 hiking trail! You will love it !
So beautiful! There are lots of different trails with different trail difficulty. It's one of my favorite trails in San Antonio! The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because you can hear the cars on the highway and dogs are not allowed.
