Short trail but the changes in elevation make up for the short distance

Excellent trail for a dfw area trail. Moderate incline up a scenic trail with lots of rock outcroppings. This trail by itself is worth the price of admission

Took my furchildren for a hike. We’ve gone to a few places in Texas so far, but this has been my favorite. The water levels across the state are very high right now, but this area only closes parts of the trails that are under water instead of the whole area surrounding. The prairie trail was a little too hot and washed out, but the deer mouse and wild plum trails were phenomenal! It’s so hard to exhaust my dogs, but this did it. And honestly $5 to be in a safe enclosure surrounded by wildlife is totally worth it. 10/10 will return!

Parked in the wrong section, things aren’t marked particularly well. Trails we did go on were well shaded and nice. Once we figured out the legends were on the trail markers, it helped a lot. Would do again.

Good, easy trail. I took my 2 dogs, one of which is 13 yrs old, and they made it just fine. It is a very easy trail and we veered off onto other trails and reconnected with Caprock to make it a little longer. Very well marked with pictures representing which trail you are on. Trailhead is just behind the main visitor's center. It is $5.00 Per Person, not per car, but they give a military and senior discount of $1.00.
