[CLOSED DUE TO FLOODING] Miller Springs Nature Center is a compilation of 10 loop trails, located below Belton Lake Dam, between Temple and Belton. The trails are suitable for all skill levels and are primarily used for hiking. Bikes are allowed on the trails accessible from the south entrance (Miller Springs Park), also. The trails closest to the Temple side are handicap-accessible. Farther trails have considerable altitude change and a few require scrambling. Detailed trail info is on the park website, with an interactive map that gives precise descriptions of the length and altitude profile of every trail. www.MillerSpringsNatureCenter.org

To be honest, after being closed for almost a year, I expected the trails to be in better condition. Heavily overgrown in parts and parts of the trails are just gone altogether. They just opened the other day, so I'm hoping there will be more maintenance done in the future. I generally like this park because it's less then 5 minutes from my house so it's not hard to go out for a quick hike.

Park is still closed. Lots of road noise...also the constant sound of leaf blowers around the south east area. Might want to save this hike for the summer when the leaves will dampen some of the noise. Trails are not marked very well (which may be due to the park being closed for months). Yet there is a ton of fresh trash all over the trails. Come on people! Pack your trash out!

One of my favorite places. There's a huge waterfall but it's hidden... Be a local and go find it ;)

Lots of natural water, can cool off. My 8 yr old hikes with ease. 6 miles in less than 2 hours. ♡
