beautiful but very rocky so don't go if you have weak ankles! :-)

Good hike. We got there pretty late and didn’t bring a flashlight with us so it was difficult to find a way back because it was super dark. However the trail is marked pretty well and it is a good trail.

Kids had a lot of fun. Different rocks to climb on and explore. Beautiful arid climate in early March.

Rocky trail following the dry creek bed. This would be impassible during wetter times. Trail is not as long as listed due to “private trail” signs near the end.

This is a nice trail....maybe a little rocky in spots....but it is well maintained and clean. My daughter and I enjoyed the variety of rock formations and the types of trees. There were a few squirrels but no deer or other wildlife. Some birds were beginning to start their spring vocalizations but in general it was very quiet. A good hike

Some parts are challenging to say the least
Great views. Superb area to explore. Multiple choices

Did the Main Loop Trail on 3/3/18. Misty, drizzly weather and a little chilly. Rocks on top of the hill were very slippery due to the drizzle. This is a very good trail to test the legs and hips. It begins with a serious climb then a "flat" section on the top then an interesting descent. We started by going left from the entry trail. This gives you the toughest part at the start. Met some friendly folks along the way. Very clean trail.

Only way to reach Bear Grass trail (the best section) is via Red Oak which is paved. The AllTrails map has you returning on the same section of Red Oak as you went out. No real reason for this, unless you just want to see the same thing again, as the other section of Red Oak (which completes the Red Oak - Bear Grass Loop) is just a tenth of a mile longer. Strongly suggest doing the loop.

Great trail for Texas! Some trails rated as difficulty really weren’t. There was one section of the Restoration Trail where you could hear and see building of huge homes and that took away from the tranquility a bit but it was just for a short section. Highly recommend and I’ll be back :) Very well marked trails too.

nice

Beautiful hike! So glad we got out there.... highly recommend.

nice trail. good way to spend an hour or two.

great trail!

Great hike. I expected a little water but the stream was bone dry. Other than that it was a short rocky trail suitable for even younger children. Kids love climbing on small boulders!

Can be a little steep and rocky depending on which path you take, but it has great views! Combination of paved and gravel trails. My GSD handled it pretty well

Love it! Wish they had more views because the place is beautiful!

Brought 6 month boxer puppy with me - he loved it. Took a water break once we got to the tower as that was about halfway. Didn't see a lot of people at all, but we arrived at the park at 630am.

Short and easy. Beautiful cypress trees. Nice beach along river with tall cliffs. Benches along the trail, picnic tables too.

Really like the area. When u get off the paved walkway the trail I was in was wide, easy to follow. Plus you can tell they spread mulch in the trail a lot- it was thick and cushion-y. I loved that. A few rocks and small tree stumps sticking up, so still need to be aware of your foot falls but felt very safe. Only reason I gave 4 not 5 stars- there were a lot of people but everyone very nice and respectful of walking space.

Main loop was decent but all the side trails were closed so only was able to do the main loop

Nice quick trail along the river.

It's a pretty trail. All paved until you reach the Red Oak trail. I'll post a separate review on that one.

Great hike. Nice elevation changes.

Good loop - but too short. I would recommend doing it at least twice around. I like that so much is shaded.

Great short hike/run but BEWARE of wild boar. Yea...boar. Scared the living daylights out of me and I had to run back to the parking lot.

I really like this park. It's not too crowded. And every blue moon you'll pass someone up, giving you a sense of security when hiking alone. This park offers trails for all skill levels. It's beautiful and not too close to the highway to obstruct the blissful sounds of nature.
