Welcome to the Wild West. Scramble over rocks and brush past cacti and ashe juniper trees on Government Canyon’s 40 miles of mostly backcountry trails. From wide paths shaded by old oaks and spanish moss to steep slopes that afford breathtaking views of San Antonio, hikers and mountain bikers are kept busy on this natural area’s rugged and varied terrain. The canyon’s home to wild turkey, rabbits, and feral pigs, plus rare birds like the golden-cheeked warbler and black-capped vireo. But feathered friends aren’t the only rare find at Government Canyon: the natural area also serves as the site of 110 million-year-old dinosaur footprints. To see the markings presumed to be left by Acrocanthosaurus and Sauroposeidon dinosaurs, join one of the monthly ranger-led “Explore the Canyon” hikes. Fall asleep at your campsite to the yowl of coyotes, and dream of creatures much fiercer that once roamed nearby.
