One of my favorite trails in Texas. You have to drive out into the middle of nowhere to get there, but it is so worth it. Temps were 105-115F, middle of the afternoon in late June--probably not the most"ideal" time for a 7 mile hike, but it really wasn't too bad at all. The trail is excellent in some places and tough to find in others, although they do have many signs which are helpful. Bring lots of water anyway, at least a gallon if you can and I'd wear protective clothing from the sun--it's brutal until 8 on this time of year.

Wildlife..I saw a LOT of buff scat but no animals were to be found on the trails today..Likely because a big herd of them were sitting in the pond up the road. The colors and topography of the canyons here are downright majestic. Suffice to say, I enjoyed my time hiking here (and a major plus--there's hardly anyone here AND the snack shop right up the road is open until 6:30 PM! :) Definitely thankful for this after my hike ended at 6..
