Dana Peak Park Trail is a 7 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Harker Heights, TX that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from October until April. Dogs and horses are also able to use this trail.
Loop trails. Hiking, mountain biking, horseback, trail running. Loops of various lengths and level of difficulty. Rocky terrain with wooded areas that have soil terrain. There are some very nice trails at the far end of the loop, some pump trail areas make it fast and exciting with some pretty gnarly rocky hill climbs. This area is getting better and better.
Just moved to Texas, and this was my first trail ride. A bit easy, but an excellent ride for beginners, and for just a casual ride. Was a bit busy, but everyone was friendly and shared the trail.
A little confusing if you dont review the trail prior, but the side trails are excellent as well. Highly recommend exploring what each provides.
Great views of Stillhouse Hollow Lake either from various points along the trail systems or by climbing to the top of the peak itself. Great combinations of existing trail systems to accommodate whatever distance goal you seek. Not an extremely physically demanding hike that offers enough areas of solitude to help escape the city/town atmosphere for a few hours.
First time hiking with the kids and dog. We didn't too far into the hike, but it was a rather easy trail and hopefully next time we can complete it.
Dog friendly trail. Markers present but not easily identifiable. Lots of different paths now present to get distracted by.
Once you make it to the top of Dana it's a beautiful view. The lower areas flood easily so if you go after some rain prepare to get muddy.
This dog friendly trail was definitely a beautiful hike. However it's not clearly marked so what should have been a 7 mile hike ended up being about 5 miles and half of it was spent hiking in circles. I'm definitely going to do it again and use this app to follow others tracks and do the full loop. I hate having my phone on me when I hike but I'm willing to give this one another shot.
I'll definitely be visiting again. I wouldn't call it an easy trail but that's part of what makes it fun if you're up for a bit of an adventure. There were spots to let the dog swim too which she definitely loved.
Enjoyed the trail once again, I love that during certain hours the dogs can run around and burn some energy off leash when few others are on the trail.
Parts of the main trail were impassable due to recent rains, but the parts of the trail that were passable presented a challenge nontheless. A little trail maintenence is needed as well. I will return when I think the place has dried out and complete the entire trail.
it was beautiful out there, but couldnt find the main trail. just a bunch of dead ends.
Spent almost 5 hours here...mostly trying to get around flooded out tracks. We still had alot of fun! Headed home covered in mud. ;)
I love this place. You can get 20 to 30 miles at this place in an entire loop. The trails used to get washed out by the rain, but they did an excellent job adding in drains so you can run here now after it rains. Currently: swamp trail is flooded completely so you can't go down there. The trail is usually clean and well maintained. Please don't litter if you visit this park. The park has 4 peaks you can climb up so you can get a good amount of elevation gain in your runs or rides. There are areas to jump in the water here. No bathrooms or running water once you leave the main boat ramp area. CARRY WATER! And please once again don't litter and enjoy
