Very well marked; nice and easy hike. There’s some off-shoots to go to the beached area of the lake.

This is such a great hike. Great views of Lake Buchanan, good elevation, a rugged trail that’s really well marked!

During March 1- sept 1 you are only allowed on the flat area by the lake. They have cleaned out all the brush with tractors. I would not come again during this time period

HikingNo shade

I don’t know what they are doing, but they dug up all the trees and shade in a lot of areas. It’s rutted out by tractors. Glad this is here but it’s probably the worst trail system I have seen.

Got a great hike at about 6 miles. Had to double back just once. Had a 35 lb pack on. Got the hills in a couple times and thus increased the elevation. Took a lot of pictures of trail. Have some lichen and missed in the picture group. Not sure what is going on the back side of this park. Bulldozers around and many trees mowed down. I did miss my turn on the back side and ended up on a road but found the real trail and stepped over barbed wire fence to get on track

**50% of trails closed between March 1st to September 1st due to endangered species nesting.** Awesome park. Don’t plan to hike beyond 6.2 miles unless you go before or after the bird nesting season. I’ll be back to experience the rest of the trails once it’s after September.

Highlights include Armadillo sightings throughout walk and potential of bald eagle sightings. No elevation, no substantial views. Just a nice walk around the grounds.

Camping
First to Review

My wife and I came here to camp. It was during the week in springtime and we literally saw only one other person while we were there. The park guide was nice enough to put us out on the furthest point on the primitive sites, our camping spot was atop a cascading cliff that ended in Lake Buchanan. The Trails that meander through the park cover a lot of distance with plenty of variety in sights and sounds. Plenty of wildlife out here too!
