Kristen and I hiked area around devils something swimming hole. Where spring river meets inks lake. Trails were nice. Pleasantly hilly. Many wildflowers. And many flowers. I jumped off
Cliff into nice cool water. So many campers. Every slot filled. Too crowded from me.

Probably one of the best marked trails
I've been on. Love the color coding and all of the options. Beautiful location -
Especially in the Spring with all the Wildflowers.

A great trail, well marked, clean, wildflowers were blooming, only complaint is that it is too close to highway 29 and can hear cars whizzing by, otherwise 5 stars.

Lovely trail in January. Lots of small trails of water, birds, and animal signs. Definitely moderate, though some trails are easier (wider and flatter).

Amazing hikes here. The recent rainfall has all the little streams burbling along. Trails for all types in the park.
Two things to note:
1. Pick up the colored trail map when you check in. The trails are not marked the best and the color coding will help. Also pick up the 'Hiking Trail Guide For Pecan Flats' (or download the PDF file) if you want to get the most out of the Interactive Trail. There are several markers that point out special trees, plants, rocks, and views along this trail and the guide tells you about them.
2. Make a trip to the north of the park to do the Devil's Waterhole and Valley Springs Creek trails. The water hole would be worth swimming in the warm weather. The Valley Spring Creek trail is an additional .84 miles and it is well worth hiking.
