Aloha K. on Tall Grass Loop Trail
this is the primitive trail across the hwy from the state park. although long. the footing and grade is easier to hike than the trails in the campground. great views.
The main route listed here for the trail is incorrect. Pay attention to trail markers made by visitors (stacked rocks blocking trail). The route shown here is either an old trail not used for a long time or a record of someone taking a game trail. Do not use this for navigation. Get an updated trail map from the park office before setting out.
This a nice easy walk for a couple hours of relaxing time in the mountains with the family. My 8 year old son hiked this one easily and even got to the top ahead of me. The views are excellent, perfect for a couple of memorable photos.
Logan L. on Davis Mountains State Park Loop Trail
We had a wonderful hike. It was comfortable August morning and could not have thought of a better place to be. I went up the Skyline trail and returned on the old CCC trail. It was a nice loop.
This paved road goes from the camping area and climbs to the summit of the mountain to the southeast. It has a couple of switchbacks, and yet not intimidating. There are several pullouts that offer great views of the surrounding area. Near the end are several picnic tables.
Did this trail from east to west. The sign says there is a 289' elevation change The trail has some very rocky places, and is overgrown. The views are OK, but not that great You can cut off about .5 mile if you access the trail from the toilet building east of the end of Skyline Drive
