Meeting Place:
The free dirt Parking Lot in the northeast part of the Natural Area. The exact address of that Parking Lot/Trailhead is 1753 Valencia Way, San Marcos, Texas. It is off of Highway 12/Wonder World Drive, and you turn left at the corner of Hwy 12/Wonder World and Craddock Avenue, then a right after that onto Valencia.

Hike Description:
The loop is about 5 miles. The terrain is rocky but pretty level, with just slight uphill/downhill. It’s a wooded area for most of it. It’s not terribly crowded. There is a restroom but no water so bring plenty of water and snacks. Poles would be useful.

Here is the link for the information and website for the City of San Marcos Purgatory Creek Natural Area.

This link will allow you to print out a trail map. It says “Trail Closures” but don’t be alarmed. It’s a good map and Angie will be there to guide you around any closures.
