Loop trails. Hiking, mountain biking, horseback, trail running. Loops of various lengths and level of difficulty. Rocky terrain with wooded areas that have soil terrain. There are some very nice trails at the far end of the loop, some pump trail areas make it fast and exciting with some pretty gnarly rocky hill climbs. This area is getting better and better.

I am out here frequently. There are more options then just this trail to make loop in this park. The map at the parking lot at the right angle curve on Commanche Gap road is incomplete too... The park is very busy on weekends since it is pretty much the only one in the area. We frequently see deer in the park. There are some very pretty views. Be aware that most of the trails are very rocky and the walk from the entrance of the park, around the twin peaks to the turn around spot on the map is NOT shady at all. The fenceline walk back from the lost and found box offers more shade... I just found out that the park closes at 9 pm and according to a friend the parking lot actually gets checked at closing time...

We walked the trail with our tiny dog and absolutely loved it! We were about to go to the water and put our feet in and it has some pretty awesome views!
