A 2.5 mile hiking trail which follows portions of Horseshoe Creek from the HSB POA Mausoleum down to Wayne’s Trail near Thanksgiving Mt. and FM 2147.
The hiking trail has parts where you walk over rocks and sloping areas. Hikers and walkers will get a feel of Hill Country nature as they walk through wooded areas with the sounds of the water from Horseshoe Creek. Other highlights include a panoramic view of Horseshoe Bay all the way to the Lighthouse, a boulder field and abundant wildlife. Horseshoe Creek has waterfalls, pools and springs along the rocky creek. There are several steep areas so take a walking stick. The trail also includes 500 feet of ADA accessible paths. On a difficulty scale of 1 (easiest) to 3 (hardest), organizers give this trail a 2-2.5.
There are information signs and maps at both ends of the trail.
DIRECTIONS: From Highway 2147, turn onto Thanksgiving Mt., drive to the top and turn right onto Hi Ridge at the 4-way stop. Pass the Church at Horseshoe Bay and turn left on Mountain Dew. After about ½ mile, look to the right for the Mausoleum sign. Follow the Mausoleum road another ½ mile to the entrance. There is parking at the Mausoleum. There is also limited parking on Wayne’s Trail, on the right side of Thanksgiving Mt. just as you leave Highway 2147, making it possible for groups to park a car at each end for a one-way hike. There are information signs and excellent maps at both ends of the trail.
