This trail is just a short drive from Chapel Home. Address: 2 Woodcreek Drive, Wimberley, TX 78676 Phone: 512-762-7310 Reviews: Love these trails, especially since they connect all the way back to Blue Hole and the beautiful hill country. We are so lucky to have such amazing trails that are paid for with tax dollars and kept up by Hays county. Great easy trail to walk. Great open view of rolling hills, and you can watch the cars passing by on the road. Good for biking and/or walking.

This is where Chapel Home is located. You can walk across Loman Creek (waterfall) and then up the road. It splits and one part goes to Unity Church with a pool and great look out site; the other keeps going for a few miles with nice views.

This is a hidden gem in a small residential area of Wimberley, Texas. Take a small climb up the mountain on the man made stone stairs, while stopping at each flight to gaze at how the valley slowly starts to come more and more into full view. When you reach the peak you have a beautiful 360 view of Wimberley Valley as far as the eyes can see. The only caution I provide is be careful on the journey up and the journey down; the stairs are quite unevenly placed and as you come down can be hard to see where they drop down, along with there isn't much of a railing. An extremely peaceful place to get lost in thoughts and enjoy natural beauty.
