Easy. Good for kids. Thought we could keep going forward at one point bc of the markers but nope and it led us out to the state park boundary fence. So just be careful!

HikingGreat!

When I hiked this trail, I did not select it from AllTrails (mistake) I just enabled the recorder. There is a side trail below the damn where the Springfield lake (if that is it's name) flows via a culvert under the trail back in to the Navasota River. It looks like a natural springs coming out of the ground. Good shade on a 108 degree day. Stop by the cemetery and look at the old gravestones, it will be time well spent. No spoilers but look at the family plot behind the wrought iron fence.

HikingGreat!

It is a fairly typical easy hike for this area. A well maintained nature trail with some educational nature signs along the well worn path. The best part of the trail is near the middle of the loop where the spillway is. There is a bench a beautiful overlook of the lake. We chose this spot to rehydrate and take in the beautiful view. Onward, just a little bit further was a waterfall. This was a pleasant surprise. We hiked down to the falls and looked around for a bit before forging on. the rest of the trail meanders back through the park, crosses over the paved park road, back around the heqdquarters and rejoins itself near the beginning of the trail. We did the Burr Oak portion of the trail as well then headed back to the car to catch the sunset. It is a very nice trail. one I will probably go back to again, as it is fairly close to my home base.

This trail was an easy hike. Some parts of the hike, the trail got super skinny and we had to combat some spider webs lol. My favorite part was the bird blind and nature id along the trail. The nature fanatic I am I just wish there were even more plant ids because along the trail it is so much easier to learn than from a book! Easy and quick hike to take with the pups!

My daughters and I went biking on this trail, it was a lot of fun. After a recent thunderstorm, there was only one muddy spot. This was my favorite trail in the park.
