A lady called me inspirational. Reunited a lost dog and his owner. The mtn. bikers called me a Good Samaritan. Reunited a lens cap with its owner. Almost stepped on a snake. Ran into Maggie.

I wouldn’t necessarily classify this as an easy trail. Yes parts were easy but lots of rocks to traverse. I’d say moderate. I gasped as bikers were going past me.

Combined the Canal Walk, North Bank, Texas Beach and Pipeline trails. Had to take a detour due to construction on the North Bank which added distance. Always a good and enjoyable hike.

it was drying out and had very few muddy spots. Very nice walk along the river, surrounded by trees and vegetation. Fun trail.
