Nice short trail for a quick bike ride. The trail is smooth, no real obstacles to worry about, good for beginners, just trying to build back up before i go back to the Purgatory Trails.

no trails have been developed and you're walking in the ruts of a motor vehicle. no access to the water as the grass is so tall and the first sign you see at the trail head is to beware of snakes. do yourself a favor and skip this pathetic "trail."

Tall grass so make sure you wear pants. Found a couple fishing spots. There are some areas where Blanco River is not as deep so perfect for little rascals. Sun block is recommended. Most of the trail is not shaded.

Lovely little trail. Very non-intensive, good place for kids, pets, or a relaxing walk after work.The most difficult part was finding the place.

not much of a trail, but easy to access from my girlfriend's apartment so we hike it a lot and enjoy it!
