HikingGreat!

Enjoyed it! Never hiked through cedar forest before. Very interesting scenery. Will say it is 6.5 miles versus 5.4

It was honestly more fun driving around the campground to see the water. Not much to see on the trials except DEER which was cool at least! Plenty of deer! Good loop for hiking or running.

First thing to note, this trail is NOT 5.4 miles. The trail outlined on this map is The Great Escape Trail. According to the trail markers, this trail is 6.5 miles (my GPS recorded it at 6.2 miles). Wasn’t quite expecting to go that far with my dogs, but they were troopers. It’s a very shaded trail and we only saw 4 other hikers and 2 bikers. Not very scenic, but peaceful.

I patched this route together so there’s areas on the side of the road, I was a bit confused. Trails are always well kept, network to one another & are clearly marked in this area, people keep there dogs under control and the views are beautiful. It’s nice to have shaded area in the summertime. Recommend this area for families too.

A mesmerizing trail. Not very long into the hike and you realize you're in a special place. It's very quiet and offers a sense of solitude. We were on the trail for 3 and half hours and saw one person at the beginning and one mountain biker at the end. The trail winds around a very unique creek that looks magical. All sorts of moss and dead leaves cover the area. There are also these trees that were hollowed out and looked almost like they were sculpted. We saw deer up close, walked underneath a be hive (that was off trail) that we didn't know was there, which we quickly moved away from. One of my favorite parts is that at about half way on the trail (3 miles and change) there is an opening down to the river that you can go sit on the shore and eat lunch. Truly a wonderful trail. I highly recommend it. Make sure to bring enough water and some snacks. There are plenty of shaded areas to take a break at.

Running

I've been out here several times. I've run the bike trail which works great as I only came across one biker. I've run the roads/paths by the water and it makes for an easy run. It's pretty isolated and the water is super low, but you can drive down to get closer to it. I would camp here as well for privacy and no fuss.

Not a fan of single tracks to begin with. The course is not marked, so it's easy to get off track. The trail is basically an all beginner with maybe a few intermediate parts thrown in. I personally did not think it was worth the $5 to get in.

Walking

If you're a dog owner who is looking for a place to take your dogs off leash - this is it!!! Instead of taking the mountain biking trail, drive further in towards the camping sites. You can then do two things: park at camping site or, if your vehicle allows, take the dirt road towards Lake Travis. Whichever way you go, you'll end up near the water. You can then walk for miles along the shoreline. The sand provides a workout for the people and dogs. When the dogs are hot or thirsty, they can take a dip in the lake. The water pretty clean and didn't yield any smelly dogs. Things to watch out for: Large fish carcasses - folks just leave 'em on the beach, so keep an eye on anything the dogs are TOO interested in Bring your own poop bags - carry in/carry out Holidays/summer weekends - there will be lots of campers, who may not appreciate your canine friends rummaging through their lunch and hanging out in their tents :) The official rule for dogs at this park: must be on leash near camping sites, but then under "owner control" elsewhere. If your dogs are friendly and UTD on shots, this is a wonderful day trip!
