Nice easy day hike. Swimming hole at the end. Lots of places to sit down and take a break.
Nice, easy, well-maintained trails. The Water Oak is the prettiest IMHO. My 6 year old daughter likes to watch the deer on the trails in the morning.
Call before you go to make sure trails aren't flooded.
Nice easy hike with 4-year-old daughter.
Awesomely maintained trails. But if it rains a lot some trails will flood and become impassable. Other than the sometime flooded trails, all are well shaded and great for hikes or bikes.
Fun trails, lots of ups and downs, runs parallel to Village Creek and the slough and crosses into slough several times. If it rained recently, it'll be a muddy ride. About 8-10 miles of trail loops.
We started our hike around noon, which was kind of hot, but there is pretty of shade and benches to rest along the way. This trail ends at a sandy beach where you can swim and eat lunch. I wasn't expecting to see much wildlife, but I was surprised when a deer ran across our path. We also saw rabbits and birds. It's a very peaceful walk along village creek and I would recommend it as a fairly easy hike for all ages.
We hiked this trail yesterday and had a great time. We packed a lunch, some drinks, our towles and a couple inflatable tubes. This trail is an in and out. 1 mile in 1 mile out. There is however another trail that loops off this village creek trail. It's easy enough for kids to hike. We spent 5 hours at this spot, flouting and had our picnic. The water was low so it was kinda merky but still was nice to cool off in. This state park were this trail is located is very nice and clean. Now mentioning this is in a state park you have to pay $3 per adult unless you have a Texas state park pass. They have walk-in primitive camp sites, camp sites with electricity, sites for motor homes and campers. They also have a cabin you can book for $80 a night. There is also a playground and picnic sites. I will be going back for sure! Love this place
