Nice and relaxing hike. Trail is wide open and clear. Would be perfect for mountain bike riding.

My favorite

This is a private property and trail not open to public

Fun easy trail and dogs can be off leash

I hiked the blue loop (7.2 miles) and the red loop (12 miles) this week. There are large sections of the trail that are thick with bluebonnets right now. I also saw a bobcat and a large rattlesnake.

Great urban hike! Can be modified to be up to 10ish miles.

This place was so nice to walk! There is a nice children’s park , restrooms (which did have a code lock but we guessed one and used it just fine), a nice sized lake ... it’s only a mile long but there are a few different route options so it never felt crowded. My favorite part was definitely a little bridge you could cross over. I would definitely come back :)

I went on a Tuesday morning and it was mildly crowded, but still lovely. There are many areas where the trail splits with no trail markers, however these all lead back to the same trail for the most part. The falls are small, though beautiful, and make a great little swimming hole.

Great for a quick jaunt in the outdoors. The trail is pretty short and not challenging, really ideal for a short walk in nature. The trail follows the river pretty well so there are some good views. Not much terrain/elevation, so its an easy trail.

I couldn’t find it, I think they put the tennis center where it used to be.

The Haynes overview trail is more of a rocks scramble up the Mesa. It is fun and not too difficult and plenty of built rock steps along the way to help out and prevent erosion. Beautiful views on the upper rim and a fun descent into the canyon floor. The hike out of the north prong canyon floor is fairly flat and easy hiking. Some awesome almost slot canyons and riverbeds to explore too.

Trails were clean and fun! Met lots of nice people.

awesome trail..2walk, walk,walk forever!

lots of glass in some areas. steep onclines. mind some of the trash if you have dogs or young kids overall really good trail

Beautiful trail. Not many people out during the week.

Amazing little gem! Easy to hike and follow trails. The spring sights and smells made this stop well worth it. A small part of the Brewery Lane Trail is temporary closed due to bee activity.

10.7 miles total. Chose to take Laguna Meadows trail to Southwest rim to Boot canyon tr/1.5 mile to Emory Peak, (the trail steps helped) woohoo!! adrenaline rush.

Beautiful views all the way up as the sun rises through the early morning. The views from the top offer long distance vistas as well as much closer interesting geological shapes. The volume of trees growing in the shaded canyon to the east of the very top trail was an interesting surprise.

Loved the trail! Great hills and rocks with flat open areas too. Most of the wood bridges and cross overs spots are in need of repair. It hasn’t been well maintained but the trees and location are nice.

Definitely kid and dog friendly, dirt packed and wide. My fiancé and I first time on this trail it was enjoyable started early in the morning to avoid heat and ended up hiking in the low 30s.

Seemed a bit dull allthough there were a couple of nice areas, looks to be standing water in some areas. Mosquito's everywhere. Also, a honey bee tree right on the trail kinda freaked us out. Alot of construction near by, heard the machines during entire hike.

Bridges still washed out but with a little determination you can get around it. Everything I look for in a trail, woods, clear markers, and a little challenge! I only went about 3 Miles into this one so far but will definitely be back to do more.

Nice drive in scenic area, somewhat overlooked in West Texas.

Went up and back Tejas Trail. Not too hard I would say moderate on hiking level. Some some mule and a small lizard. Great hike. 4-14-18.

Mild hike, rocky at parts, had to cross in the creek twice. Hill of life was a great end to the trail! Mostly shaded woods, so bring bug spray. Still Texas, so bring sunscreen too!

Technical trail, lots of rocks, roots and stairs on stairs on stairs! Beautiful. The river was dry so no waterfall but still gorgeous.
plenty of people on the trail during the week. I felt safe running alone.
Bring water!
There is no turn around point for the shorter trail. The trail is well marked with signs every .25 miles

Would have rated higher if weather conditions would have been better. Torrential downpours all day before, so this trail turned into 27 miles of ankle to knee deep swamp crawling. Terrain ranged from to Texas to the Everglades to north Arkansas to Vietnam. Great test of the mind by doing the entire loop in 12 hours.

One of the most beautiful scenic and challenging trails I’ve ever experienced. Many elevation changes, steep precipices to scramble up, sometimes on your hands and knees, abundant wildlife to observe, and if you go early and spring time, You can comfortably hike all day long on the trail systems caprock has to offer, without feeling like you’re dying. Passionately recommend to those in Moderat shape looking to challenge or just push themselves a little more. If you can at the South prong campsite, you will be in the same parking lot as the upper Canyon trailhead!

Husband and I had a great time. Just wore my tennis shoes which were sufficient 99% of the trail, climbing up the hill to the view I wished I had my boots just for some ankle support over the fallen trees and rocks. Fantastic view for central Texas up on the hill. Had a great time. Bring plenty of water.
