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.

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.
