Such a beautiful very well maintained trail with lots of ups and downs and gorgeous views! I can’t wait to get back out there and explore more of the distance. Did a little over 6 miles.

BackpackingGreat!

This trail keeps hiking interesting. I enjoyed the ease and flow of the trail as well as the elevation, hike grades and views. I will be going back! *Can't seem to be able to add my recording.*

BackpackingOver grown

Backpacked the entire trail and back from Juniper Point to Paw Paw. The trail was very scenic (for North Texas) and well maintained until the Rock Creek Marina. I do not recommend hiking past the Rock Creek Marina because the trail seems to be somewhat abandoned as it was overgrown and trail blazes where missing everywhere. The last few miles had little to no scenery. Plus, the dead trees made it a safety concern. *I camped at Eagle's Roost, which was one of the few places with water access.

Elevation constantly changes. Was dry because of peak winter in effect but I can see it being really pretty in Spring/summer.

As stated there are two main entry points on the east side, Juniper Point and a little farther west Cedar Bayou. I prefer starting at Cedar Bayou but it does cost $5 to park there. I hiked from there yesterday, with my dog, out to Eagle’s Roost campsite. Great hike. Weather was perfect.

Great trail for people and dogs. Well marked and lots of places to enjoy the lake views. This was my second hike on this trail and both times very nice.

This is a very wooded well maintained trail with beautiful lake views. The narrow trail winds through the woods passing rock formations and creeks. I am looking forward to exploring more of it.
