This was a great place to hike with our family. We have a 4 and 1 year old who loved it. My 72 year old mother also came and greatly enjoyed it. We went on the short trails - pond and prairie & creek trail that had a old homestead house that the boys loved playing in. Carry lots of water and bring sunscreen and bug repellent.

It was a good hike and the first trail was not hard on the legs and there was some really pretty areas to stop and admire the view.

I love this trail! It's well maintained and and challenging. I had my granddaughter with me today, so we completed about half of the available trails, but I definitely will return to complete the rest.

Great trail, nice views, signage could be better, not heavily trafficked. There are restrooms at trailhead. Cell service is non-existent on parts of the trail. There are some short easy trails near the trailhead but the longer loops are definitely not easy; moderate intensity with creek crossings, somewhat steep inclines, and narrow trails.

Nice trail all the way around. Beautiful overlooks as you go around the ridge lines and a nice surprise awaits when you get on the backside of Indian Grass trail as it really opens up. Very. Never knew Texas was this beautiful.

My favorite hike in Texas so far! Central Texas is lacking in trails with varying elevation, for sure. Not this place! Rocky hills, running creeks, and fall foliage during November. Quiet and peaceful, too. It's like a happy little secret place. I especially enjoyed examining the fossils along the Indiangrass Trail. I've got a ton of photos at the link I included!

What a great place! Crystal clear streams, fall foliage, and tons of fossils on the southeast corner of Indiangrass Trail. We followed the outer edge and hiked all the loops, and my track says it was just under 6 miles. Be aware that there are a few water crossings. Our feet got a little wet but it wasn't bad. Overall a great hike, and one of my favorites in Central Texas so far.

Hiked the Creek and Rimrock trails. Nice little hike with a running creek. Minimal wildlife if you don't count the lizards. Will go back to do the Indian grass trail soon.
