Hike Upper Purgatory

  • Upper Purgatory Natural Area

    At the intersection of Craddock Avenue and Wonder World., San Marcos, TX (map)

    29.883274 -97.941391

  • Upper Purgatory trailhead. See detailed instructions below
  • Join us for a 3-4 mile hike through San Marcos' Upper Purgatory greenbelt.

    Detailed instructions from IH 35:

    Get off IH 35 at Exit 202, Wonderworld/Wimberley/Rt 12.  

    Go West on Wonderworld/Rt 12

    At the third traffic light (Craddock Ave, about 2 miles), turn Left.

    After one block, turn Right (going straight will take you into a subdivision).  The road will be unpaved after a few hundred feet but is passable with almost any car.

    Follow the road to the parking lot, where it dead ends.

    Join us for food and conversation after the hike.

    Please note that if you are an experienced hiker, this and all other trails in San Marcos are easy. However, if you are a novice hiker, you need to know that many San Marcos trails are extremely rocky. There are often elevation changes of 50 to 150 feet. We hike at a moderate pace of about 3 miles an hour. If you have problems with balance or need to walk slowly, this hike probably is not for you.  However, we encourage you to join us for our regular city and neighborhood walks.  You should also note that most weeks, Saturday morning hikes are somewhat shorter and somewhat slower than Sunday morning hikes.
