Preserve the peace, the quiet, and the place…
Our natural areas are living, breathing places with a wide variety of plants and critters. Please help us care for these beautiful places; they are working hard to clean our water and our air. Let’s return the favor by keeping them clean and natural and following these city park rules:
Take only photos, leave only footprints.
Park open sunrise to sunset (curfew applies after sunset).
Keep dogs on a leash and remove their waste.
Campfires, glass containers, motor vehicles, weapons, horses, and camping are not permitted.
Stay on established trails on public property.
Bicycles yield to hikers, refrain from biking on muddy trails.
Note: San Marcos natural areas do not currently offer restroom facilities or running water. Some trails can be rugged and grasses tall, so wear long pants and closed, strong shoes. Water, hat, sunscreen and camera are a good idea.
Report problems to San Marcos Parks & Recreation at (512) 393-8400. Emergencies call 911.
