Features Wildlife

Family Friendly Local YMCA facilities, sheltered picnic area with restrooms and availability to rent space for larger groups/parties.

Park hours: sunrise to sunset. This park is closely monitored due to the closeness to the YMCA.

Description

O.P. Schnabel Park is located on Bandera and Braun and the trails in the park connect to the Leon Creek Greenway.

An easy trailhead for this short loop begins at the parking lot of YMCA Braundera, closest to the main facility. It is an easy, paved path with great tree coverage. The loop is considered Level 1 for all accessibility with a short detour to a Level 2 accessibility path. There is little to no elevation in this section. Although this loop is paved, it runs parallel with a dirt path that many hikers and mountain bikers access. So, be aware of cyclists and other hikers.

Flora & Fauna

This short loop has great tree coverage and great vegetation allowing for viewing of wildlife such as deer, birds, snakes, and small critters. You may find yourself running into other park visitors viewing wildlife or collecting rock samples and plant species.
