Wildlife viewing was excellent despite the cool winter nights. Well worth visiting this trail throughout the year.

Took some trails around. Then down to the river. Which was good for swimming but the current was quick! Still got in to cool down though. One of these trails was closed but we took it anyways to cut some time, it was mostly just washed out in one area so some climbing was due. Other than that it was good. Very beautiful. We stopped and found a little knook by the river we set up a blanket and swam for a bit, other than that though there wasn’t much river access that wasn’t brushed in.

from dirt roads to foot trails, this place has it all. you can even get down in the river. we took our dogs and they had a blast. the weather was nice though down in the trees theres not much of a breeze. some trail signs were confusing but with the app and a map it was fine of course. it gets super muddy when it rains and horses use some of the trails so when it dries up it is quite an uneven path.

Hiked this on March 15th with my fiancé. Trail was marked very well and was in very good condition. Highly recommend taking a detour on the trails to go on the valley view trail which had a great view. Great trail, I would definitely recommend. Also, they have added a new trail called Bluestem. It doesn't appear on the trail maps they give you, and it runs right through the Bluff loop.

The hiking is so serene! Great views, uncrowded, very peaceful. The elevation gain is about 300 ft, and it makes for a good workout. The trails are decently marked. The staff is friendly. Also, its dog friendly (on leash).

Be warned, these trails, the whole park does not allow bicycles. I learned that when I was asked to leave. I did not notice the sign at the entrance to the park which was very small. However I did spend quite a bit of time on the trail before one of the staff members noticed me. It is a great trail that I was told they are hoping to open to mountain bikes before to long. Some great downhills and views. I got caught in a couple unexpected sand traps and beware of mud in the low lying areas. It appears to be trafficked heavily by horses so after a rain the trails are very rutted and rough. Bring a full suspension bike if you have one. Some hike and bike parts. Great views of the river at some places. Will go again when it opens to bike.

Plenty of distance due to multiple trails and routes. I made approx. 6 mile loop (3+ hours) out the western side to Colorado River returning along eastern side. Saw maybe 5 other folks ... all friendly. Good leisurely workout, clean, fresh air, lot of nice scenery. Access is from Hwy 71, not 969 by the way. $5 day use fee.

There are two other markers that say "McKinney Roughs," but this is it. The other two should be removed. Also, the address is 1884 State Highway 71 West, Cedar Creek, Tx 78612. I don't believe the app has the address. I'm not sure what the Southern Loop is. I didn't see it on the map. But I took the Ridge Trail out to its end, then turned right onto the Bluff Trail Loop. When I completed theBluff Trail Loop coming back down the Ridge Trail there is another trail, the Woodland Trail, that cuts off to the west. I took it and it doubled back to the end of the Ridge Trail. I say all that to say this. The Ridge Trail and The Woodlands Trail form a nice loop. Despite the fact that it has been raining for days (weeks) the Ridge / Woodlands loop is mostly cinder and well drained and I had no problem walking it. It is maintained, though it needs work. The Woodland Trail is narrow in a couple of spots too. But, overall both are beautiful easy hikes with lots of flora and some fauna to see. The end of the Ridge Trail has a great overlook view of the Colorado River Valley. I also took the Bluff Trail Loop. I really enjoyed it and saw deer, a lot of cardinals and lots of tracks of other animals. It was very muddy though, particularly the lower down towards the river I got. That being said, I never got to a place that I couldn't maneuver around. I'm glad I took it. There's a very interesting offshoot where you can see a large bend in the river and how swollen the river is right now. There's a River Trail. I can't imagine it's open. Where my map said it should be at a coupe of points there was nothing but river. Overall my hike was 3.3 miles and a nice day. I don't know if this App lets yo look at photos that I took while recording my hike, but I invite you to look if you can.

Nice views here and there. Trail well kept. The trail detailed here is just one path in a more complicated web of trails at McKinney Roughs Nature Park (https://alltrails.com/explore/trail/us/texas/mckinney-roughs). Actually, I couldn't find anything there that referred to "Southern Loop Trail". I will go back and try some of the other trails soon.

The main entrance is closed on Sundays. Use entrance 1/4 mile east labeled "Hwy 71 trailhead". A great variety of terrain. Bobcat Ridge is a rocky, sandy path through cedar trees. Coyote Road offer a wide clay path to the Colorado River via Riverside trail. Follow Riverside until you get to the more challenging Cypress and Pine Ridge trails which will take you down to a deep river valley then take you up a ~200 ft switchback climb which is rewarded by a great view of the Pine Ridge Plateau. From there it's an easy sandy walk back to the trailhead. A great way to spend a few hours out in nature. Bring snacks and water.
