An amazing trail to lose yourself but not really ever get lost. The trails are marked very well, the walk is pleasantly follows beside the creek with cold fresh water to cool off in, it’s not deep but it gets the job done.
We hiked to the double lake and back. Restrooms and water fountains were provided. Along with trash cans.
You can swim in lake.
It’s out in the middle of no where, which is exactly what I like. You should try this one. Wear long pants. ✌

Did this trail today and I had such a good experience. Got lost once or twice due to some unclear markings but I managed. I was however the only one there. Very peaceful!

Not bad at all.

Decent hike, and moderately challenging due to the length of the trail. Varying plant life makes it entertaining and interesting. Pants might be recommended in late summer, when we got a bit scratched up from the knees down.

Good hike. Took the whole family and everyone enjoyed themselves. We did not see much wildlife. They probably heard my kids coming well before we arrived.

This is a very nice hike. The trail is quiet and we only met one other individual. There is a nice creek and the trail bridges it several times. The southern end has a few trail alternatives so you can do some short loops. We saw 3 wild boar and I have heard they are mean(but tasty ). Great spring flowers and butterflies too.

Absolutely fantastic trail for the beginner or if you think backpacking is something you might want to try. Its a short trail with a few loops that is part of the Lone Star Hiking Trail. It can be hiked in a couple hours so there is no need for a pack and gear. A walking stick or trekking pole and some water is sufficient which makes it great for the beginner or if you want to do a short nature walk. One of the loops will take you to Double Lake Recreation Area. Usage is light, trail is marked and well kept. Difficulty is very moderate, great for the kids too.
