Nice easy hike, would be good for families. A little elevation gain in the beginning makes for good views, and some beautiful wildflowers. Check out the Creek Trail, pond, old schoolhouse, and the bay boxes, too!

Nice short hike with multiple cut-ins to the water. Great for families and there’s some shade for a picnic.

Nice trail in the Hill Country. I clocked it at 4 miles not 3.6 like it said. You go through shaded and wide open areas. Parts of the trail are overgrown. Lots of wildflowers in May. The stream was nice to cool off in.

Great hike with beautiful views! Can add distance doing other trails at the top. Bring water, some shade but this trail pretty open to the sun. One thing, this area specifically says “No Pets Allowed” at entrance because it’s a national wildlife refuge. Came across 3 different peeps with dogs today, they were responsible with their dogs and didn’t see any poops along the trail but PLEASE leave your fur friends at home for this one. I love my dogs as much (maybe more) than anybody but they stay home for this hike ( probably why I don’t hike here more often) but regardless, please be respectful of the rules.

Perfect easy family hike with our toddler. Mostly flat, even terrain. Really enjoyed the stretch paralleling the creek. There are numbered interpretive posts along the way, explanatory pamphlet at trailhead.

Beautiful trail, include not too difficult. Definitely take the creek trail too, it's a beautiful creek, such stunning color and lots of little waterfalls.

Fuuun! Took a minute to see some decent views. But when I found ‘em it was amazing. Nice little half-ish day get away.

Very challenging and fun. We did this one with our 12 year old while wearing our 10 month old. It was incredibly steep so we had to take turns wearing the baby. Definitely have to be careful on some of the terrain but the hike and view are worth it!

This is just a flat out great hike. Beautiful views, some nice incline. A great hill country hike. Make sure to take the creek trail section of the trails as well (only .6 miles long). It's the best looking creek I've ever seen and arguably the best part of the hike. Hiked in late December, 2018.

Great trail with a little of everything.

Beautiful hike. It's a mix of sun and shade, so make sure you take sunscreen. I just wish dogs were allowed.

Does anyone know what the grave is all about? If so please tell me! Kinda spooky. Figured it's just a pet? Great trail. Nice place to take pops for his bday. Also a huge paw print. Print had to be a joke I posted in photos. Good place to clear your head:)

Great trail but a bit overgrown in the lower parts. I took 4 kids ranging from 6-12 and all made it great. The great at the end is superb. Very quick hike at just less than an hour with a few stops. Two very good views.

Great trail; good uphills, some cool water sections, great views. Would definitely do it again. Interesting enough to keep you on your toes, manageable enough to do in decent sneakers and shorts

Nice little trail 2.2 miles with okay views. Most likely you will be the only one there...

This trail has some hills and a nice little creek. There are a couple other trails connecting to it and you can get about 5 miles in if you use them all.

Overall three are 5 "trails" at this spot. My favorite two were the creek trail (0.5 m) and the rim rock trail (2.2 m). I am not an avid hiker by any means but like a good nature hike from time to time and this place fit my preferences completely! The trail runs along a small creek bed which surprisingly even at this time of year still had water in it. It also has shade spots, scenic views, and inclines/declines that required some stamina and coordination but weren't by any means difficult! There are 2 other trails on the outer part that, if you enjoy prairie walking in the scorching sun, are nice as well. Overall, I loved this place! It beautiful, secluded but close, and peaceful! Only wish I had found it sooner!!!

Nice overlook at the top of rim rock trail. Pretty short hike, not a lot to see.

it's nice because on your walk you wont run into people so its nice and secluded, but i don't recommend during drought.
