HikingGreat!

Nicest scenery in the park along with the bluff loop. Inclined in sections but still pretty easy.

The colors in the surrounding area were beautiful and the weather was perfect! However, we ended up branching off route 2 miles north without realizing and ended up on a horse trail.. so we needed to avoid quite the amount of feces. We’d go back to give it another shot but are in no hurry.

Well maintained trail. I prefer more scenic vistas but was a nice walk with lovely wildflowers in early April. Bring water as Texas heat is already setting in at this time.

Tad confusing to follow the map given by the visitor's center, as the trails seem to randomly change names. Don't go within days after a rain seems to take a while to dry up, and get pretty muddy. Love the fresh smell, and to hear the running water. Pretty easy trek. Not too shaded which means during cooler weather the sun can still provide warmth. Enjoyed the changes in elevation! Didn't rate higher because I think I prefer a different terrain (larger trees, more narrow paths, rocky, higher elevations, etc), but beyond there was nothing to really dislike!

Great trail, well maintained and a lot of connectors to expand the route! Not a lot of elevation change, but some nice outlooks along the way. Mostly shaded.

Nice trail...great to see the new fancy zip line that they put up here. We went after the rains though and the mud/clay was like glue on our boots that ended up feeling like a ton of extra weight...not to mention that we "slid" down a few hills. Will definitely wait until it's dry next time. Also the 6.8 loop was blocked off in places which ended up to be about 5.5. Was nice though.

The trailhead is here: https://goo.gl/maps/omkGde547J92 This trail is at McKinney Roughs Nature Area. There are many trails that are very nice there as well.

The main entrance is closed on Sundays. Use entrance 1/4 mile east labeled "Hwy 71 trailhead". A great variety of terrain. Bobcat Ridge is a rocky, sandy path through cedar trees. Coyote Road offer a wide clay path to the Colorado River via Riverside trail. Follow Riverside until you get to the more challenging Cypress and Pine Ridge trails which will take you down to a deep river valley then take you up a ~200 ft switchback climb which is rewarded by a great view of the Pine Ridge Plateau. From there it's an easy sandy walk back to the trailhead. A great way to spend a few hours out in nature. Bring snacks and water.

McKinney Roughs is a great place to hike. BSATroop 271 completed 10 miles including the Pine Ridge Loop. Great views along the trail. Only downfall to this park is its proximity to Hwy 290.
