Had good time with some challenges. Reunited 2 dogs with their owners. Trail had some hills. Walked thru meadows & small streams. Part of trail was still closed but plenty to still explore. Look out for the small rock structures off the path that people have built.
Very pleasant trail. Perfect length for our walk today. Lots of recently burned areas with no underbrush and charred trees. Should mention that half of the trails are closed.
It was great except for the fact that half of the trail is closed for repairs.
Hiked the blue trail out and back late Saturday. Beautiful scenery. 3.2 miles out and back. Very hot and humid. Take plenty water. The entire park is very nice and was not crowded for holiday weekend.
Trail was great in spite of recent rains. A little muddy and some small run offs to cross in places. Will definitely do this one again!
Great trail and workout. A lot of down pine trees due to pine beetles. My map my walk measured 4.6 miles and the provided park map stated 3.6. There is enough shade, sun and breeze to make it enjoyable.
Nice trail system. Parts of the trails have been re-worked. The trail now routes through the woods rather than down the pipeline which is nice. New bridges have been built over sections of the dry creek drops making it easier to get through. Additional trails have been added as part of the transition of the trails into hike and "bike" trails. Mountain bikes are now welcomed. Be mindful of falling limbs and trees since the area has a lot of dead trees from pine beetles and the drought.
We completed the full 7.7 miles. This hike does not provide any scenic views but does provide tranquility. Be aware - there is a lot of tree stumps from new reworking of the trails and also tree roots throughout.
This hike was a nice leisure hike for the hot Texas summer. The trees provided a nice canopy.
