Be advised about ticks. Probably pulled about 50 off my dog after walking the 8.0 mile loop today. Other than that the trail is nice and well marked. Not particularly scenic.

Nice woodsy walk with some good views of the lake. There are some tall grassy areas so good idea for you and the canines to be well protected against ticks.

We did a trail run out here for the first time. Absolutely beautiful and has something for every skill level. The trail is well marked and the path is well worn.

There are actually several trails at Lake McMurtry. This particular trail is the "Red" trail. There is also the yellow trail, the blue trail and the orange trail.

Nice trails through woods and meadows. Wildlife can often be seen. This particular trip we saw a deer, 2 armadillos, numerous lizards, birds, butterflies, dragonflies, only 1 tick, and 0 snakes. Still has some wildflowers which would most likely be plentiful earlier in the season.
It is a shared trail with mountain bikes but, the few we came across (4 or 5) were very courteous & friendly and the trail is in great shape for hiking.
