Had some great views, and didn't feel too long. I would recommend some sturdy shoes since there is alot of rocks. I enjoyed watching the sunrise from the top.

We enjoyed it. Great stops next to the water to admire the lake. My four year old completed this hike with us. She needed help with a few spots and had a few complaints. I would say ages 6 and up would be perfect.

Beautiful views of the cliffs, the lake, and Hell’s gate. Very rocky, so recommend some type of hiking shoe.

Great shady trail, with good directional signage. Just remember to watch where you step because of all the loose rocks.

Best hike I've found thus far in North Texas. Beautiful views, moderately challenging terrain, and long enough to feel like I got a good workout. Will definitely be back. PS description says this is in PK State Park. That is not the case.

Short, fun, right next to the campsite makes it a great option for an early morning warmup

Easy hike with shade and good views. Equally great for my pup to enjoy.

Great trail, in my opinion the best trail system for Possum Kingdom area. Very sandy, as it looks like this area has been recently re-laid. Note that the route outlined in this AllTrails file is not exactly correct, but it follows the general shape of the actual trail. Use trail signage to ensure you are going the right way.

Great little trail. Awesome views from the top! Our four kids 3-12 made it with only a little complaining. Would recommend for anyone. Bonus, we saw quite a few butterflies.

Great trail for getting miles in! Nice changes in scenery. Slight elevation changes. Well marked. Great lookout points. All in all it’s a lovely trail for central Texas.

This trail was great! I didn't know what to expect as I had read other reviews; some saying this was moderate, while others said hard. Yes to all of it! This trail had a bit of everything...some great uphill, some flat areas and some beautiful overlooks. The trail was easy to follow and well kept, with several trail head options from which to start. I only made half of the 16 miles that were available, as time didn't permit it, but I will definitely be back and would highly recommend it to anyone!

Awesome trail. Terrific scenic views. Rocky and arid which made it very enjoyable and unique. Tiring at certain stretches. Big elevation changes. Signage is confusing, but overall a great experience. Definitely recommend.

Good trail in the state park. Not much elevation, but some

Very well maintained, has some elevation changes, and bucolic views. The wildlflowers are coming in strong now. There are another 4-5 miles of trail that could be incorporated into this hike. Only downsides are the signage is a bit confusing (I got turned around once) and it is never truly isolated.

There’s a $4 entrance fee per person. There’s a few nice views, but it’s nothing spectacular or worth paying for. There are plenty other options to take in the captivating view of Possum Kingdom lake.

Nice trail with a little bit of elevation change and several lookouts with good views of Possum Kingdom lake. Came out on a nice Wednesday in February and didn’t see another person during my 4.7 mile hike.

Undiscovered jewel for hiking. Much of it is through thick juniper but you get a good amount of hills and lake views.

My favorite trails in N. Texas. Awesome fast and flowing downhills make the climbs well worth the effort. Fairly challenging and not for the timid.

kicked my butt. great trail.
