To many of us transplants, June is already way too hot. So, we thought we’d make a trip to Natural Bridge Caverns with a 5-mile morning hike at McAllister Park in San Antonio.
8:30 am hike at McCallister Park. McAllister Park, 13102 Jones Maltsberger Rd, San Antonio, TX 78247. Meet at the parking lot at the baseball diamonds at the end of ‘Pvt Rd’ – see map. To get to this parking lot, enter the park at the Jones Maltsberger Road (northwest corner), bear left and follow ‘Pvt Rd/Turkey Roost’. Take a left on Buckhorn Lane. Take a right onto ‘Pvt Rd’. The parking lot will be on your right. We will start hiking on time to beat the heat and to keep with our schedule. Bring a change of fresh shirt to change into after the hike before lunch. Bring 2 liters of water and a snack. (210)[masked]

12:30 pm meet at Natural Bridges Cavern for Combo tour. ($29.99 for adults, $17.99 for children). Afterwards, we will go back to the hotel to take showers. [masked]
Rest of the day – River Walk. Will decide where to have dinner when we get there. We'll meet in front of the Alamo, 300 Alamo Plaza, San Antonio. It closes at 7 pm, so I don't know if we'll have time to go into the Alamo; but we can if it's still open.
10 am brunch at Magnolia Pancake Haus, 606 Embassy Oaks, San Antonio, TX 78216, V: (210) 496-0828.
