We went hiking around lake abilene. It was a good little stretch with visible trails the whole way. However hardly any shade at all. Luckily we found a shade half way through so we could enjoy some lunch. Took us about 2.5 hours to get through it.

We love these trails. There are actually 4 loops to choose from and you can link them together for longer hikes. We go several times a week and have done all 4 on many occasions. Beautiful and peaceful...love looking for wildlife.

Only the second trail I have done but it was great to break away from the streets. I will go back. Only one biker at 10:30 a.m.

Hiked the Onion trail. Long boring paced loop. But I did see a nice sized buck in the middle of the trail. We just stared at each other for 15 seconds. Really cool. I also hiked the rock house trail. Loved seeing the state champion cedar tree.

Kat: keep an eye on the park website at http://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/ray-roberts-lake
I've never called the 800 number, so I can't speak to that, but the website has had a notice up at the top of the page for ages ... I've been checking for the trail to reopen for at least a year and a half :^o it feels like longer

Very scenic trail. Most of it was not wide enough for two people side-by-side. I purposely went and camped overnight during rainy weather so as to really ensure I'd be the only one out there. Will definitely go back when it's dry though! Was the perfect place for peace and quiet to rid the stresses of daily life.
