The start of this trail is a great place to park with water for cooling off.
The trail is a nice mixture of rolling hills and somewhat smooth trails before connecting to Wolf Mountain, South Equestrian Loop, and the tough but outstanding Juniper Ridge trail.
The entire Pedernales Falls
area is composed of limestone, so this trails surface has the consistency of a gravel road on most of its length.
At the end of the trail, you'll cross a road and see a parking lot on the right, continue straight and you'll see the Wolf Mountain Trail
. Continue straight for another half-mile and stay left at the next "Y" intersection to run the Juniper Ridge Trail
. At this point, the North Loop Equestrian Trail continues to the west and crosses Park Rd, however, this portion of the trail is true horse trail and not recommended for running.
There is signage at the parking lot and all major trailheads but, of course, have your trail map on hand, lots of water, and energy bars etc.
