Great for a nice walk. Easy path and saw some deer along the way.

Part of the boardwalk is destroyed so the trail is very small

3-16-18 Center and Refuge is open, only the West Riverbottom trail is closed. It is a nice place to hike, close to the city. It's Texas scenery so, nothing fabulous. Couldn't find any prairie dogs, but the bison are easily viewed.

Short and scenic. Not stroller friendly but suitable for small kids.

Pretty level and easy trail. Most of it goes along the water, and it’s great for pups!

As of 01/06/2018 the refuge is closed and no access allowed to this trailed

nice trails, clean, scenic is good.

I covered parts of Prairie, Deer Mouse, Riverbottom, and Caprock - a little over 3miles.
Overall, even despite the heat it wasn't bad. The bugs are out in full force which was really irritating the entire time, and there are huge wasps so be aware if you're allergic. When I got to Riverbottom I only stayed on it for 10min and then ran to the paved road when I was sure I heard an alligator dunk himself; could have been a big turtle but I wasn't taking any chances. Caprock has a big steep climb on one side of it, not sure about the other. All in all, it was a fairly easy and nice walk.

Awesome walk. Nicely kept trais.

The trails were well maintained. The markings for the trails need some work. Saw bison, deer and one rattler. Traveled the prairie, deer mouse and river bottom out to the rest a while
structure. it was an easy hike.

Love this place for hiking! The trails are relatively easy, and there's a beautiful view on all of them. A few are close to the water, so if you're weary of snakes and such, I'd avoid those. There's a ton of wildlife to see and an interactive area where you can learn more about the wildlife around you. It is a $5 fee to get in, dogs are allowed but must remain leashed. They also have events from time to time. It's a gorgeous center and a great place to take kids to educate them on the wildlife and ecosystems around them!

The map was a tad confusing, however I had a great guide with me.

I have walked this trail many times because it is a great place to take your four legged friend. Plenty of water in the lake for him to drink and the trails are easily accessible. It is quiet and away from city noise.

GORGEOUS day for a hike! So many years since I've been hear, so nice to rediscover. So many trails to discover and so much to do! Will definitely bee back soon! #52hikechallenge2016

My husband and I wanted to check this place out because we had heard good things about it through their Facebook page. we went and hiked for about two hours. There was a lot of neat wildlife out there, including the Buffalo like they advertise. Unfortunately, for my taste, some of the trails were not maintained enough. There were a few places you would have to walk through tall grass, and considering the proximity to the lake and the fact that we spotted a cottonmouth, it seemed like it would increase your chances of being bit by a snake.

There is a neat little educational center with an owl, hawk, baby alligator, snapping turtle, and a few snakes on display. They also have a neat birdwatching room. Even as an adult, I felt like the center was neat. I would recommend these trails still, but be wary on them because of the snakes and the fact it isn't as maintained as some of the other non-concrete trails in the area.

Great shaded trail along the Trinity. Called Turtle Trail off of Shoreline Drive.

I really like this place. Fun to see bison and all kinds of other wildlife. Pretty peaceful scenery and overall it's a beautiful park.

Easy trails with nice CCC stone work.

Good fun easy trail, we saw plenty of wildlife including an Aligator.

Multiple trails with easy to moderate difficulty. Very nice nature trails with wildlife and trees all around, not to mention the lake. Needs multiple visits to complete all trails in this place. Nice for a hiking weekend while enjoying the city at night.

It's a nice short easy hike. I had my boy with me and he had a good time. It's cool to look into the history of this place CCC park 31. It a little to bad that they didn't try to save more of the park. But it get it

great trails, but park hours are from 8-5. you have to be out of the park by 5. my main purpose in coming here was sunset photography.
