trail locations for Burnet, Texas

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.

Cavern tour is great walking experience with a wonderful history lesson that was an additional bonus.

Family friendly cavern tour. Took a backpack carrier for my 15 month old. She did great on the 1.5 mile tour.

Lots of trails to do here! Make sure to wear your sunscreen. Not too much shade for most of the trail we went on.

Got lost... but, it was kinda fun!
(Not unsafe lost, a few miles of trail that was not clearly marked, keep looping back. We knew we would eventually pop out near the main parking, so no biggie)

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.

Not much of a hiking trail. More like a walking path.

My first trail run.

I went to inks lake state park for a scenic run but there was no way you could run on the green trail. It was a beautiful hike though. I took my yellow lab with me and the trail was very narrow in places. I would have liked some signs along the trails as to where to go. We were able to stay on the main trail for most of it but there are a lot of off shoots and we ended up off the main trail and we're not able to find the area I was looking for which was the pecan flats. All in all I had a great time. The scenery was beautiful.

There's camping here, cabins for rent, as well of tons of people fishing along the lake. Very pretty in spring when the wild flowers are blooming.
