This earth takes you through what the earth may have looked like during the dinosaur age! Experience a different time and place with the thick tropical foilage and swamps that are featured on this trail. Wide gravel partly shaded trail that is well maintained. $3/Person over 12 (or free with a Texas State Park Pass) to enter the Park.

I will keep the 5 star rating going. It's beautiful. Easy easy for those that mountain bike. However, bridge after bridge after bridge is pretty cool. Watch out for snakes. My wife ran one over.....don't tell her but it was hilarious with legs up above handlebars.

Very well maintained, quite, and unique. Take your time and enjoy. Did almost all of this trail within a loop plus connectors that we did in November. Some day, I would like to see it in it's wet season.

A great trail for a beginner or for families. Six foot wide gravel trail and nice bridges. I walked it and never saw a soul.

Nice easy trail, good for walking your dog or enjoying the outdoors with your family. Trail is crushed granite and wooden decking in marsh areas.
