Outdoor Adventures

The Lone Star State Is Perfect for Outdoors Lovers

If your family is seeking an excursion in the great outdoors, make San Antonio the destination of your next vacation. When you stay at Hyatt Vacation Club San Antonio, Wild Oak Ranch, you can enjoy nature at your home base too. The landscaping is lush, and the nature trails are plenty.
Explore the outdoor gems around San Antonio to find new appreciation for the Lone Star State’s incredible beauty.

Stroll the Greenway

The Medina River Greenway on the city’s south side is a newer trail system near Texas A&M University-San Antonio. Follow well-maintained trails along 7 miles of Medina River to catch a glimpse of native cypress, oak, and pecan trees. The trails are generally flat, making it easy to enjoy the outdoors with strollers or family members with limited mobility. Several easy-to-access entry points have made this one of the most popular outdoor destinations in the city.

Learn About Local Flora and Fauna

Want to surround yourself with nature in a more curated and educational way close by? You can spend a morning or afternoon learning about Texas plants and animals at the San Antonio Botanical Garden. The attraction offers many seasonal events and special displays for kids and grownups alike. Check the calendar for crafting events, musical performances, and story time for the kids.

Hike the Natural Landscape

Travel to the north side of the city to explore 420 acres of largely undisturbed Texas terrain at Eisenhower Park. The grounds feature an observation deck overlooking scenic Hill Country terrain and 6 miles of paved and unpaved trails. From dry creek beds to rocky canyons, this is the place to experience slightly more challenging trails in a maintained park environment. No bikes or scooters are allowed (since it would be difficult to get strollers across most trails), but barbecue and picnic areas are available for a midday meal under the big Texas sky.

Attention Birders: Bring Your Binoculars

Friedrich Wilderness Park is the place to bring your bird spotting guide and binoculars. The 600-acre nature preserve is the home to two endangered bird species — the golden-cheeked warbler and the black-capped vireo. And it’s not uncommon to catch a glimpse of white-tail deer and cottontail rabbits along 10 miles of trails. (Note: These are some of the more challenging trails in the area, but there is an ADA-accessible path.)

Where To Stay

Make your visit complete with a stay at Wild Oak Ranch.

Set within the beautiful Texas Hill Country, its design is reminiscent of historic ranch architecture including limestone exteriors, rustic wood beams, and custom furnishings. Explore 39 acres of lush landscaping and nature trails, or simply enjoy the amenities:

  • Relax at the indoor/outdoor pool area with waterslides, whirlpool spas, an 800-foot lazy river, and cabanas.
  • Discover your perfect vacation by enjoying the warmth at the Wildflower Pavilion fire pit.
  • Play a round at the nearby Hyatt Hill Country Golf Club, just minutes away.
  • Work out at the state-of-the-art fitness center with Life Fitness equipment.

Enjoy the charm of Texas ranch-style decor in a studio, or one-, two-, or three-bedroom space. San Antonio and Wild Oak Ranch welcome you.
