Nice trail. A little elevation. Not too crowded.

Not worth the drive. The trail has hardly any shade. Very narrow we were kind of worried about snakes. No water except one spot and it was very small.

Pretty views. Stacked loops let you make the hike as long as you want.

Beautiful trail! Nice hike, challenging areas, and the 2 people that were there working were so nice and helpful! Will be back

What a beautiful hike! Had the chance to check out all the trails and they were all great! Very peaceful and relaxing. We did run across a coral snake so just be cautious!

Nice secluded trail...good for a morning stretch out hike. Cow Creek is beautifully clear. Make sure that you include the Indian Grass trail in your hike...completes the experience!

Loved it! Took 6 kids, youngest was 4 (he rode on my shoulders much of the time). Did the whole trail in about two hours. Definitely a winner.

Very nice in springtime. Green, plenty of cover, not too hot. Not too muddy, either, even after a morning rain.
Probably better to take it counterclockwise; that way, the short dull section (along an old internal ranch road) is at the end.

One of the best hikes I've ever done! Highly recommended to all!

The trail lives up to reviews, it includes a creek, hills, shady trees, cactus and grasses. Busy enough that you are not alone, but not at all crowded.

Pretty hike, but nothing too challenging or breathtaking. It's the perfect hike for beginners or those who just want to clear their minds.

This was a great place to hike with our family. We have a 4 and 1 year old who loved it. My 72 year old mother also came and greatly enjoyed it. We went on the short trails - pond and prairie & creek trail that had a old homestead house that the boys loved playing in. Carry lots of water and bring sunscreen and bug repellent.

It was a good hike and the first trail was not hard on the legs and there was some really pretty areas to stop and admire the view.

I love this trail! It's well maintained and and challenging. I had my granddaughter with me today, so we completed about half of the available trails, but I definitely will return to complete the rest.

Great trail, nice views, signage could be better, not heavily trafficked. There are restrooms at trailhead. Cell service is non-existent on parts of the trail. There are some short easy trails near the trailhead but the longer loops are definitely not easy; moderate intensity with creek crossings, somewhat steep inclines, and narrow trails.

Nice hike. This trail offers some really nice open views which you don't get on alot of other trails.
