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.
