I started at the state park edge, then hiked this Fort Davis National Historic Site Hiking Trails down to the fort and back. Great trail, easy to follow, very rocky. There are signs at every trail intersection, which was great since I only had the state park map. Highly recommended! Really great views at every turn.

Beautiful scenery. My family and I really enjoyed the hike. My youngest was 6 at the time. She had now problem with it. Would recommend the trail to anyone.

This a nice easy walk for a couple hours of relaxing time in the mountains with the family. My 8 year old son hiked this one easily and even got to the top ahead of me. The views are excellent, perfect for a couple of memorable photos.

Beautiful vistas every where you turn & a great view of the University of Texas McDonald Observatory in the distance. We found a treasure under a big tree at the top near a fence!
