Beautiful, quiet, and peaceful! Very shaded and great for hiking with pup! Make sure to bring lots of water and put on bug spray. Trail was very well-marked and was an overall awesome experience! Would do it again for sure!

I did both the Chinquapin Loop and the CCC Trail. This particular trail shown is the CCC. The Chinquapin Loop runs slightly parallel and inside of the CCC loop. The two combined is somewhere in the 16-17 mile neighborhood. Mostly forest with shade. Plenty of wildlife. Overall, very pleasant experience. It was very hot on the day that I went, but the shade kept it bearable. Bring water with you.

It was beautiful. So lush and green. We walked along a lake, sat down had a picnic, very relaxing! We did hit some stops and had to reroute because it had rained a day before. Other than that, peaceful!

Lovely park, lovely trails. I planned to do the Chinquapin Loop, but was turned back at the southernmost tip where it follows the CCC trail. They're doing some kind of construction and wouldn't let me walk through. The park ranger was going to give me a ride past the construction to the other side, but he said it was littered with downed trees and he didn't recommend it. I decided to pass. Too bad the ranger at the front office didn't know that. I asked about the condition of the trail and was told there might be a few downed trees but it was passable. Apparently the park HQ doesn't know about the construction? Really?

This was a nice little trail that had plenty of roots and nice views of the lake. There were no dramatic descents and no difficult climbs. It is a nice trail to get a ride in.

Pretty great! Bit muddy but all in all good for a backpack overnighter!

Hiked dogwood and prairie beach loop. Lots of bikers on the trails so it can get crowded quick. Very easy hike with some lake views. Would love to come back and finish the hike around the lake.

My favorite trails in this part of Texas. There is magic here. Varied trees. Water. Elevation change. I love it all and have walked or rain every trail. Lots of snakes.

Loved this trail! Got lost a couple of times because trail wasn't marked a couple of places near the dam so actually went 8.2 miles but great hiking business!

Great trail, walked the 6.8 Mile Chinquapin Trail around the lake with a friend. Texas park costs $5 per adult to get in, but worth it. For Houston area, this is a very hilly trail with lots of sandy ups and downs, tree roots and mountain-bikers. Walked in November so I didn't see any snakes or alligators, but they are in the park. Lots of shade and full tree cover, the trail has some narrow areas and lots of bends, so be aware for the bikers..
