From Austin, go to the Y in Oak Hill. Continue west on Hwy 290 and turn left onto Camp Ben McCullough Rd./FM1826 (third traffic light after the Y). Drive approximately 2 miles, cross the low water bridge over Slaughter Creek and the property/gate entrance will be on your left.

Good fast entry level trail. The trails are frequently closed during and after significant rain to prevent damage to the trail system. No pets allowed.

This is a beautiful trail. I'll definitely come back out here.
There's very little parking which is irritating but it helps to keep the number of people on the trail low.

Can't give a review because road was closed until further notice on 3/9/15.

good mix of technical and fast track. I prefer more elevation change and some sections washing out. Still an all around fun ride.

It's been maybe two years since I hiked this loop. I remember that it was full sun and that no dogs were allowed although I do believe that equestrians are allowed.

While there are a few rocky patches spread out along the trail that can prove troublesome if one isn't careful, the majority of the trail serves as a smooth and winding tour of a small section of Texas hill country.

Easy loop. Lovely Sunday afternoon run/hike. A bit rocky in parts, overall very mellow.
