Lake Rita Blanca State Park Trail is a 5.4 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Hartley, TX that features beautiful wild flowers. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking, walking, trail running, and birding.
It is very maintained and there are beautiful views. I'm giving it a four instead of a five because it felt more like a walk and less like a hike. I probably could have done the trail in flip flops.
Beautiful wild flowers this year
Drive to some overlooks; unpaved, rocky paths go down to lake at various points or make your own! Good place to see migrating waterfowl, neat sunsets.
