Lovely trail in January. Lots of small trails of water, birds, and animal signs. Definitely moderate, though some trails are easier (wider and flatter).
Amazing hikes here. The recent rainfall has all the little streams burbling along. Trails for all types in the park.
Two things to note:
1. Pick up the colored trail map when you check in. The trails are not marked the best and the color coding will help. Also pick up the 'Hiking Trail Guide For Pecan Flats' (or download the PDF file) if you want to get the most out of the Interactive Trail. There are several markers that point out special trees, plants, rocks, and views along this trail and the guide tells you about them.
2. Make a trip to the north of the park to do the Devil's Waterhole and Valley Springs Creek trails. The water hole would be worth swimming in the warm weather. The Valley Spring Creek trail is an additional .84 miles and it is well worth hiking.
Great scenery but the trails weren't marked very well
Highly recommend this trail.
Hiking among such beauty is so awesome.
Lots of trails to do here! Make sure to wear your sunscreen. Not too much shade for most of the trail we went on.
Beautiful moderate difficult trail. Walked the exterior. Most definitely plan to come back
Great trail. Walked the exterior. Moderate difficulty. Definitely not for running or biking. Very rocky and hilly.
