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.

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.

Fantastic. Weather was great and trail was good.

This has to be part of the trail that goes around Lake Georgetown. So to find it park at Tejas Camp and walk towards the river. Can't miss it.
