Walked at sunrise. Was a nice and very desert feeling trail. Got to see a few deer, rabbits, vultures and other birds, was even greeted by a rattler in a Bush near the front end of the trail! Didn't realize there would be a dry season, the 'lake's was quite far off tho driving down 454 nearby after the hike gave easy access to a beautiful spot. I drove right past the entrance, it is in a parking lot with a few buildings, not marked until you get into it.

I tried to hike this trail, but when I tried entering the area there was a sign that said it was private property and anyone who trespassed would be prosecuted

We really enjoyed this trail. It was the first time we had been on it. We actually entered from 454 and it is easy to walk in a giant circle by accident. After completing the circle once we finally found the path that leads to HWY 90. That area was smooth and a much easier walk. The area by 454 requires more climbing and isn’t quite as smooth. We saw deer and birds (and I know there were more wildlife because the dogs got excited). Overall it was a great trail. It did start getting hot so make sure to take some water for you and your dogs.

This is a great beginner trail. We hiked about 7 am and the weather was cool and nice. Beautiful view of the sunrise. The views along the way are pretty. The is some slight incline hiking over rocks. We saw deer and there were trail signs pointing out different flora which was fun to read about. The end was a little disappointing, it just ends at a gravel road. But I would definitely bring folks back who are visiting in the area and want to hike.

Descent. Short 3 mile in and back trail. There is an abandoned road leading to the lake. If you take it to the waters edge you essentially double the trail length. Lots of deer, birds and flora.

Hot. Trail grown over in sections. Not a lot to see.

Hot and dry. But...well worth the trip. The road noise will fade fast and then it’s the sounds of birds and lizards, sights of butterflies and vistas, and smells of flowers.

Beautiful easy hike! We came down for the weekend and decided to do this trail since it was the closest trail to our park. We hiked with my 74 year old grandmother and she did fine. There were 7 of us on this hike. It’s a nice flat trail for the most part... the part of the trail near Spur 454 is slightly hilly but nothing to steep or difficult. We were able to see a few deer on the hike and the plant life was quite beautiful. The Lantanas were bursting with color with their beautiful orange and yellow flowers. The fossil beds (near Spur 454) had everyone excited pointing out the different fossilized shells. Had a few good views of the lake. Speaking of the lake, the All Trails map makes it look like your walking right along the waters edge... your not. You won’t be anywhere near the water. We figured it may be an over flow area where there could be water sometimes during flooding.

I always enjoy hiking or trail running at this particular Lake Amistad trail. There are 2 main access points to the trail - 1 at the Amistad National Recreation Area visitor center parking lot, look for the trailhead near the culvert facing Hwy 90 West. The other trailhead is accessible at the end of the old Spur 454 road that dead-ends into the brush. Trails are well maintained, although some of the small side trails are closed at times due to overgrowth. This location is excellent for wildlife watching including birds and deer, and a variety of native plants and cactus are marked with informational signs. One of the cool features is a lower elevation section that's part of the Del Rio Clay formation and has lots of old fossils embedded into rock. Higher parts of the trail offer great views of the lake and scenery. At just under 3 miles, I would recommend this trail to anyone looking for an interesting and scenic hike through this lovely desert scrub area. As a side note, most of the trail is uncovered, so make sure to wear adequate sun protection.
