hiking

This is a fun trail that's rocky, somewhat paved in places, and grassy. A little pleasant elevation and scenery. One caveat: the all trails map takes the hiker away from the beaten trail on the north end, near the hwy 80 service road. Once you get to the last fork just after the creek, go south (right) instead of north (left) and you're good to go!

There are no marked trails or anything that resembles a hiking trail. This site is more of a family or company picnic area. The two ponds are filled with very stagnant water that I wouldn't even fish in.

The trail is easily accessible from hwy 80 yet isolated enough to give you the feeling you are "in the woods" there are some ponds that will bring lots of wildlife, small mammals, birds, and BUGS (bring repellent). There is no water on the trail so bring your own. Also the trail lacks signs or any orienteering help so bring some common sense if you lack that then YES your GPS-enabled phone will have reception. It should take you about 1 hr to complete. This is also a perfect mountain biking training site for newbies. Bluebonnets blanket the prairie in April-May and it looks very scenic.
