Lindsey H. on Double Lake Hiking Trail
Love this park! Especially love the mountain bike race that takes place every spring. Fun, flowy trail with nice elevation change. Not too technical but will test your endurance. Hubby and I try and make it up there every chance we get. Bring cash to pay for land fee.
This is a very nice hike. The trail is quiet and we only met one other individual. There is a nice creek and the trail bridges it several times. The southern end has a few trail alternatives so you can do some short loops. We saw 3 wild boar and I have heard they are mean(but tasty ). Great spring flowers and butterflies too.
Absolutely fantastic trail for the beginner or if you think backpacking is something you might want to try. Its a short trail with a few loops that is part of the Lone Star Hiking Trail. It can be hiked in a couple hours so there is no need for a pack and gear. A walking stick or trekking pole and some water is sufficient which makes it great for the beginner or if you want to do a short nature walk. One of the loops will take you to Double Lake Recreation Area. Usage is light, trail is marked and well kept. Difficulty is very moderate, great for the kids too.
