It a good 10 miles total. No one else on the trail on a beautiful March day. There is no lake, just a few creeks. There is no parking lot on either end, but plenty of street parking. In the middle there is a short walk along a road with a home that has a pack of unleashed dogs that were eager to greet us.

Easy trail

Very well-marked trail. No good drinking water found on the trail, as an fyi to others. Perfect weather conditions today. Not too sure why I didn’t see anyone else, but two gals at @ mile 9 on the way back during Spring Break. A definite loss for others who didn’t partake. Limited window in TX of ideal hiking weather- cool upper 60s/low 70’s and zero humidity.

Did the full trail; phone says 10.1 miles, Garmin said 9.85. Aside from the distance the trail was easy with most of the elevation on the front half. Met about 10 people on trail and they were all overly friendly.

It was beautiful. So lush and green. We walked along a lake, sat down had a picnic, very relaxing! We did hit some stops and had to reroute because it had rained a day before. Other than that, peaceful!

This was basically a spider symposium with no elevation change and bugs engaging in aerial coitus everywhere.
The coolest part was a silk worm-infested tree.

This trail is a ton of fun and proves to be an all day hike. Een for a more experienced hiker. There is plenty of wild life to see, and beautifull river that flows through. Warning, DO NOT GO AFTER A HURRICAIN!! i did with my family once and was lost for 10 hours. Be safe bo cell phone reception. Otherwise have fun!!! Best wishes!
