Terrible trail for biking, lots of uphill very rocky areas with deep roots that will knock you off your bike.

This is an easy to moderate trail. the trail can be shortened by cutting off switchbacks and hiking straight. Expect vista views and a variety in trails. This is maintained by the Army Corp of Engineers. is apears to be an old abandoned state or regional park as there are large amounts of still usable concrete picnic tables. Do everyone a favor and do not use the trash cans along the trail. they are abandoned and no one empties them. Lots of wildlife, shade, clearings, beach, roots, rocks, everything accept ladders, boardwalks and bridges. a great trail for a morning or day hike.

This was an amazing trail, but a little too much for us. very Rocky and lots of Roots. The area was very clean.

The trail in itself was a great trail to hike. I wouldn’t recommend doing it without this app though. There are very little markers and many points deep into the trail you needed one. The app was pretty spot on and kept me on track. I hiked most of it, but there were places I was able to run too. Bathrooms are almost nonexistent so definitely go before you get to the trailhead.

Stop at the gas station to go to the bathroom before you start! No facilities at trailhead, a few bathrooms along the trail once you’re in about 3 miles, not maintained, piles of leaves to get to stall, paint clippings from the doors, or bird poo littered the leaves - not sure which so go at your own risk. Overall, good trail, very poorly marked. Used the All Trails map and still got turned around and ended up doubling back instead of looping to the end. We decided to cut through to the road and still finished with 7.8 miles. Will try again soon to get the whole loop. Baja BBQ shack at the marina is a good place to grab a bite and drink afterwards.

This is a really great trail! Great for hiking and running. Pretty much all single track. Much more tame compared to places like Bandera. The only reason I gave it 4 and not 5 stars was because the marking is not great. I easily navigated using the route feature in the All Trails app but would be much better if they would just improve the marking. I will definitely be back!

This trail should not be rated as "moderate." It is for Intermediate riders at least. Very rocky and Technical. A great challenge for more experienced riders. Several nice drops, technical climbs and nice downhill sections, but far from "moderate."

It’s a very good lengthy trail. Sadly it’s POORLY marked. We had to check the trail map on my phone several times. Not very peaceful because there’s so many boats in the water and people blasting music. Barely and wildlife.

Great hike! Plenty of secluded lake beaches. Extremely hot in the summer, so plenty of water and maybe some shoes for your pup!

30+ years of trail running experience. my 18 year old son and I set out to do whole trail. First 2.5 miles was hard to figure out which way to go, too many choices. but from there was no problem until very end. Mile markers every half mile, gently rolling, very runable, single track, ended up with 6.3 miles, so missed something at the start. could use some marking but worth doing.
