There's a man who is missing on this trail as of July 3rd 2019. If you think about going just know it's a little busy right now. pray they find him.

Great trail but very challenging on the buckeye half. The waterfall is well worth it. Bring plenty of water if starting at Buckeye, no water until 4.5 miles in at the falls. The trails are overgrown and we identified several deer tick (they carry like disease). Protect yourself and check for ticks frequently. So many great camping spots. Several water crossing that require waterproof shoes.

Great hike , definitely at the hard level. Had some great views and we did find the water fall. Use caution this time of year, the ticks are definitely out. We also have some great pictures.

Easy to find and get to. Buckeye section is a bit tough, caney creek section is pretty easy. Be prepared for ticks.

Fun weekend trip within driving distance of DFW. The trail doesn't have any marking but it's pretty easy to follow the path. Plenty of water on the southern half. No campsites near the trail head so if you show up late you'll be hiking in the dark for a while.

Great remote loop. Saw more deer than people. Trail was marked well enough.
