There are several trails at the Cibolo Nature center. The creek trail runs next to the cypress-shaded Cibolo Creek, and is the nicest trail in the park. Coming back, you can take the Woodlands trail through a wooded section. The other trails (Cypress, Prairie Loop, and Tree of Life) go through a restored Texas prairie and next to some soccer fields. The Marsh trail goes to a boardwalk through a restored wetland, with a very nice place to sit in the middle of the marsh.
A gentle learning experience

The Nature Center is a unique experience in that it's not really a hiking challenge but a learning experience. In just a few miles you can visit four distinct eco-systems in the same park. On the day I went the weather was cool and cloudy making for a very enjoyable time. I think there was a local school bus or two with quite a few children. This detracted from the peace and solitude but who am I to deny children the opportunity to learn about the environment and how to protect it?? I'll be returning to the Center in the summer, then again in the fall and winter just to see the changes in flora and fauna. It's also just a few short miles down the road (Hwy 46) from the Honey Creek Preserve and Guadalupe River State Park.
