    Gary Tindall completed Glade Trail Mini Loop

    Gary Tindall reviewed Red Oak Trail

    9 months ago

    Red Oak Trail is the ADA Level 1 section of the 2 trails here. If you want anything other than a leisurely walk, you will need to include Bear Grass which is only an additional .7 mile for a total of 1.7. Bear Grass may be challenging for some, but we are in our mid 60's and did it easily without poles.

    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.

    Enchanted Rock Loop is the outer trail inside the park boundary. It is probably the least used trail, despite the number of reviews here, many of which are describing other trails. It does not include Echo Canyon or Turkey Pass trails. You can do the Enchanted Summit first, but it is a stand alone trail and by far, the most popular (and is listed as a stand alone by AllTrails). The east and west parts of this trail are interesting. Part of the southern section is walking through the park larger picnic area and parking lots. The northern part is a gravel service road along a ridge top and is so, so. My recommendation is once past Buzzard's Roost, look for the cutoff to Base Trail which goes along the north side of Freshman Mt. and Enchanted Rock. Take Echo Canyon Trail northwest past Moss Lake and it will hook you back up with Loop Trail and go left. Much more interesting route throughout.

    Gary Tindall reviewed Main Loop to Restoration Way Trail

    9 months ago

    We added a little bit more to our loop hike taking in a few more trails to make a total of 6.1 miles. We combined 10 trails: Entry, Forest Range, Water, Juniper Barrens, Main Loop, Vista, Restoration Way, Bosque, Fern Del, and Juniper Ridge. Lots of changes of scenery, open areas and shaded, ups and downs, and trail skill levels made this a very enjoyable hike. Very good facilities at the trailhead, but none elsewhere. While parking fills up quickly, we found ourselves alone most of the time. Probably because of all the different combination of trails one can make and because we included the farthest out trails.

    A very well kept paved walking trail. Given this isn't a real hike, we made it a 4.5 mile evening walk enjoying the lake, trees, and sunset.

    If you're going to do any "urban hiking", this walk plus the Missions Trail, and a few other downtown areas is some of the best. It may be easy going, but you'll get a whole lot of it.

    Small parts of this trail could be the most difficult within the park for some to get through as your going over and around rocks, small boulders, and flat slabs. For most, this will be no problem as it is easy scrambling. We went during the first part of November and a section of this trail was colorful. We did this trail as part of a loop around Enchanted Rock also using Base Trail and Turkey Pass Trail.

    Very unique formation. Be sure to walk around all sides of the upper area to take advantage of the different vistas and views of the park area.
