As noted in a previous review, the walkway across the dam is now closed to the public. You can still drive up to the parking area and see what the top of the dam looks like. Because you can't use the walkway, there are no...More

Canyon Lake is a great location to spend a day or a week. Go on top the Dam and enjoy the walk across with views of the Guadalupe river as well as the Lake. Morning or evening, both are enjoyable times to visit.

Apparently, someone took issue with the walkway and was able to get it shut down to the public. A very sad loss for 1000’s of visitors.

My daughter and walked the dam and it was simply breath taking. We had the most beautiful day for a stroll and was always greeted by friendly people walking by!

I enjoyed the view of the lake as I walked the .8 mile path over the dam. The best part was the cool breeze!

Windy but very pleasant walk across the dam . Easy stroll with lots of families and pets. A little less than a mile each way.

For a drizzling,cold Texas day the walk from the parking lot to dam was shielding my trees. Restrooms and picnic bench seating, this park is a good pit stop.

Great views and a nice place to walk on an overcast day. You’d be pretty exposed in the sun and probably not where you want to be mid afternoon on a hot day.

Well worth the stop off if you are in the area, the view of the lake and hillsides is breathtaking. The dam top is just short of a mile long. A small parking lot, with a number of walking trails in the area,

Lots of bikes around the area, but didn’t see any on the dam.
