Great hiking trail. Would rate as moderate in difficulty. Most of the trail has a tree canopy over it. There are points where the trail continues after road crossing. Trail is well-marked and several spots along the trail over spectacular views of Lake Texoma. There are areas with picnic tables if you want to pack a lunch. There are bathrooms that are accessible at a few points on the trail. Hiked in early October and it was a perfect time.

One of the best hikes within a 1 1/2 hours of DFW. Some decent terrain, but nothing too strenuous. Despite the description, it is not a loop. Check your dog for ticks - mine picked one up here in the dead of winter.

I have been here a few times this week. Love the views and the terrain. Down side is they are not loops. But the views make up for it.

On a cooler day or early in the morning this would have been a great hike. The trail is very hilly and rugged with just enough challenge to make it worth the drive. Hiking shoes are more appropriate then runners for this trail. I will be back on a cooler day in the fall.

My husband and I went camping last weekend there. The trails are not hard, just long. No loops, overall the views are beautiful, the hike was great. There were few people on the trails saturday and none on Sunday. I enjoyed the hike:)

Great hiking place! It's probably the hardest hike around here, but I'm just starting and it was doable. Great views with water all around. Thankful for clear signage. Only a couple people on the trail on a Saturday at 9am. It is $5 per person honest system at entrance.
