Fun hike. A little rocky here and there but nice hike I would do again.

Great trails for hiking. There are several interconnecting loops near the lake trail allowing you to choose the appropriate distance and scenery for your hike. The trails are well maintained but not overly manicured. They are very well marked, even in the rockier outcrops. The dogs and I did the green lake loop and the interconnecting blue woodland loop which was spot on 4.5 miles. Challenging but not overly so. As far as skill level, I would consider the lake loop easy and the woodland loop intermediate due to the rocky terrain and gradual incline. Great hike and impressive trails - I will certainly go back!

What a beautiful and well-maintained park! We loved the classic Texas Hill Country landscape. The trails were mostly a mix of sand and granite rocks, and while it wasn't very well marked, the map we were given by the friendly staff at headquarters was pretty helpful (entrance fee is $6 for each person). Our GSD loved it. Would recommend trash receptacles for dog poop and camping litter, but other than that, it was exactly what we had hoped! The grasshoppers and prickly pears are out in full force right now, along with a bunch of campers, kayakers, and people swimming/picnicking. Really had a lovely time today!
