3.   Hiking Trails

There are 4 hiking trails at the Cibolo Nature Center, the marshland, woodlands, Cibolo Creek Trail and the Native Texas Prairie Trail, and they are all under a mile long.

We really enjoyed the Marshland Trail, and right after our last visit, we saw that someone has dumped a 3′ pet alligator.  The alligator will be removed to a safer location, but it just goes to show that you should always keep your eyes open!

4.  Visitor’s Center and Gift Shop

The Visitor’s Center has air conditioning, and that may be reason enough to visit after a hike on a summer morning, but they also have several animals on display, educational information, maps and very friendly volunteers!

6. Dinosaur Tracks 

My oldest son LOVES dinosaurs, and I’ll admit the dinosaur tracks are the first thing that attracted me to Cibolo Nature Center!

You can’t actually see the tracks, which are in the creek a short distance away, but they do have these reproductions.

The Cibolo Nature Center doesn’t sell food, but you can bring a picnic lunch to eat under one of the pretty shade trees!
