Trail Description
About this trail
I'm new, with little to compare Purgertory Park to. It varies from wide & easy, to intermediate, to ' thank God I had a helmut on'. It connects to Prospect Park a well. Check out local web pages for more details & donate...they are doing great work in San Marcos.

Review: Lots of rocks. Big rocks. Chunky. Loose medium sized rocks. You're gonna scratch your rims up and bump your pedals around a bit. There are a few fun trails. A few. Venture off to upper purgatory from lower purgatory and you've accepted a good challenging ride.

Review: I very much agree with the last post! Some portions of the trail are a cake walk, others you need to be focused, and then there are parts that your just hanging on for dear life hoping not to go over the bars!!!! I highly recommend bringing a spare tube (learned the hard way when i went through two tubes :/ ) will be upgrading to tubless in the near future!

Review: Dante is pretty gnar and has some greats spots. If you run tubes bring extras and a pump if you're going to try and ride the technical stuff (or you know stay within your limits or whatever). I go a couple times a week depending on how my classes are going and have learned when to walk on this trail. once you're down below the cliff things smooth out real nice. I like to take Beatrice from Dante and make my way to the second trailhead. Beatrice has a nice flow and stays prettt flat. There's a decent log you have to either get over or go around but other than that it's pretty chill. Very beautiful is the fall with the leaves everywhere and the creek bed is just great. Prime texas Hill country if you have a few hours and the stamina it's a great place to spend your afternoon or morning. If it was easy would it be fun?

Review: We started from the upper Purgatory Creek Greenspace trailhead. Dante's trail is very rocky in this end of the park and under normal circumstances a challenge to ride. Since the rocks were slippery with morning fog we determined it too treacherous. We instead traveled to the middle and lower sections where the trail is less rocky. The trail here changes from singletrack to doubletrack to limestone path. Some side trails off of Dante's were also rocky and challenging. In all this was a very enjoyable outing and a good number of hikers agreed as the trail became more crowded with time.

Review: I have been going to this park for Dante's trail for about a year and a half. It starts off smooth and wide crushed limestone path but narrows to a dirt trail after about a mile and gets rocky and very difficult towards the end of the trail, I usually have to walk my bike through. About half way through, there is an overlook point with a 40ft cliff that has a trail that goes to the bottom where there is a small cave in the cliff side. There is a network of trails but they are marked so navigating the 570 acres is not terribly difficult. Some parts of the trail are not always well kept so it isn't unheard of to have the grass and weeds about chest height on the sides of the trail for a short distance but nonetheless a great park.
