Nice little trail. Narrow in some areas. Clearly marked though. You'll see the marker for Bear Grass at the top of the Red Oak trail. It goes off the pavement into natural terrain. Steep in areas and muddy after rain.

Only way to reach Bear Grass trail (the best section) is via Red Oak which is paved. The AllTrails map has you returning on the same section of Red Oak as you went out. No real reason for this, unless you just want to see the same thing again, as the other section of Red Oak (which completes the Red Oak - Bear Grass Loop) is just a tenth of a mile longer. Strongly suggest doing the loop.

It's a pretty trail. All paved until you reach the Red Oak trail. I'll post a separate review on that one.

Great short hike/run but BEWARE of wild boar. Yea...boar. Scared the living daylights out of me and I had to run back to the parking lot.

It was a good hike with beautiful views but it's too short

This is a pretty and quick hike that's tucked away in a neighborhood. In the spring, there are bluebonnets in bloom everywhere at the trailhead. Did this hike with a 5 month old with easy.

This is not an "Easy" trail! It's a level 4 so don't try it with out proper shoes and trekking pole or walking stick. Beautiful very rugged but satisfying to complete. CRC is basically a mini-me version of nearby Friedrich Wilderness Pk.

Short trail. Nice elevation.. Narrow in some parts. Not overly used which is good.
