Hike the Ringtail Ridge Trail

Ringtail Ridge Trail - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

The Ringtail Ridge Trail is a gorgeous, 1.9 mile hike just outside of San Marcos, Texas.

This trail is shared by hikers, trail runners, mountain bikers, and dog walkers. The trail is open for use year round, featuring beautiful wildflowers in the spring. 

The trail can be slightly hard to spot - a good place to park is next to a church off Old Hwy 80, and a spur trail will take you to the main trail.

Nice curated walk

Very clean area, the driveway is very hard to find and also not for an average sedan. My truck shook all the way down but the actual hiking was nice, not too long and there’s no trails that would take more than an hour, you can tell the upkeep is very real and it’s very well taken care of and accessible whether that’s a good or bad thing is up to you
