Starts out flat and relatively boring but really ratchets things up about 2 miles in. Lots of rocks and rugged terrain.

I backpacked the 26.2 mile loop in Nov 2019 in 2 nights, 3 days. June 2020, am currently section hiking the loop in 6 days. (Will end up being double-Since no camping allowed right now I am just hiking out and back). Will complete in 6 days. Just completed 2nd day. The easiest part to hike is across the dam and tejas to russell. The rest is super rocky.

It was really fun, easy trail. I biked to the river, and had a picnic down there. It's a very popular fishing spot. Super pretty!

Hiked the whole trail multiple times, broken up into 3 sections. Great time of year to see flowers blooming, lots of butterflies, few small snakes and lizards and lots of turkey vultures. Trail is flat in some parts and uneven rocky terrain in others. Lots of shade and nice views of the lake.

I have completed the entire trail system in segments over the last weeks with the longest distance hiked so far being 21 miles in one walk, with the goal being to do the entire 26 miles in a day around the lake with 30lbs pack, forthcoming. Very nice uneven terrain trail through beautiful lakeside scenery with some elevation but easy enough. It is also goes through some early 1900's German farmsteads highlighted by great examples of dry limestone property walls and goat pens especially on the north side. Historic and prehistoric archaeological sites are present as to be expected and some are marked with plaques highlighting the prehistory of the area the damage caused to site integrity by looters in the past. Bring plenty of water and kibble for the long hauls. Have also kayaked from Tejas camp into Lake Georgetown at highest water level this summer as well as camped out at Jim Hogg Park when the weather turned...pretty chill time. Pretty well thought out recreation area fer sure.

Our GSD loves this trail! This is probably the best trail we’ve been on since moving to Killeen from WA. Plenty of quick spots for the pups to run, play and take a quick dip to cool off. Wasn’t too busy a couple of families and mountain bike riders but overall a really enjoyable trail.

Hiking

I only hiked down to about Walnut Spring Park, but boy was it gorgeous! Nice views of the lake (more like a river here) river at first, then after a short bout of woods (with a small water crossing) and the open fields, you get another nice view of the lake. After this is hiking in the woods for awhile, but you get glimpses of the lake at a distance, cool looking vegetation. Once at Walnut Spring park, you can actually hike down to the edge of the lake. And here, it's just utterly beautiful- a least in the Summer when I hiked it, I wonder if it holds it's beauty during the Winter. I'll definitely be back soon, to try and hike all the way to Russel Park.

Running

The first 5 miles of the trail are easy, slow rolling and easy to run. Exposed and hot in the summer, the trail is full of wildflowers and great for a spring run. The rest of the trail is rocky, technical and more shaded. Additional trail exists in Twin Springs preserve, adding another 3-mile loop after an uphill climb for about 1 mile. Wear shoes with a good rock plate and carry plenty of water.

This trail actually makes a loop and is about 26 miles long. The trail isn't marked very well and I've gotten off track a few times. I haven't done the whole thing yet. Still working on it.

Did the whole loop in a day...not the best idea, but i wanted to see if I could. And hooray, I can! My main issue is that when you reach a trailhead there are no directions or signs on where to pick up the trail again! Also, the water stops marked on the map aren't really there. Not sure why it says they are! Quite pretty though. Be safe and bring water!

Started at Russell Park and walked west a few miles until I hit a beautiful campground nestled among oak trees right on the edge of the lake. Saw only a few people the whole hike. Tejas Trail is also awesome. Overall, the hikes on this trail are not crowded and very pretty.
