In December, 2012 the City of Kerrville completed the first phase of the River Trail – with a trailhead at the Riverside Nature Center and Tranquility Island in Louise Hays Park. The 10-foot wide concrete trail is ADA compliant and open to hike and bikes. The River Trail is open to the public from dawn to dark.

Ten interpretative signs are located along this first 3/4 miles of trail as well as seating areas and “critter tracks”.

Trail users are encouraged to refrain from feeding the wildlife along the path.


The City of Kerrville is currently making improvements in Louise Hays Park that include a major utility project, upgrades and renovations of park facilities and extending the River Trail east towards G Street Bridge (the next trailhead), and the trail will ultimately continue all the way to Kerrville-Schreiner Park. During construction access to Louise Hays Park from Thompson Drive is closed. The River Trail is open between Riverside Nature Center and the Butt-Holdsworth Library (the wood stairs are not ADA).

RNC maintains a list of the flora and fauna checklists for the River Trail.
