A great trail, well marked, clean, wildflowers were blooming, only complaint is that it is too close to highway 29 and can hear cars whizzing by, otherwise 5 stars.

Fun for the whole family.

super easy trail great when its cool out!

Easy walk, heavily shaded trail. Cool rock features throughout the hike. Saw butterflies, birds, bees, and snakes. Climb the observation tower and gaze for miles towards Inks Lake and open farmland. You can also do a 1.5m guided tour (1.5 hours) into the caverns. It was a great way to cool down after the short hike. Definitely recommend you take the time to visit the caverns in addition to the trail.

Lovely trail in January. Lots of small trails of water, birds, and animal signs. Definitely moderate, though some trails are easier (wider and flatter).

Amazing hikes here. The recent rainfall has all the little streams burbling along. Trails for all types in the park.
Two things to note:
1. Pick up the colored trail map when you check in. The trails are not marked the best and the color coding will help. Also pick up the 'Hiking Trail Guide For Pecan Flats' (or download the PDF file) if you want to get the most out of the Interactive Trail. There are several markers that point out special trees, plants, rocks, and views along this trail and the guide tells you about them.
2. Make a trip to the north of the park to do the Devil's Waterhole and Valley Springs Creek trails. The water hole would be worth swimming in the warm weather. The Valley Spring Creek trail is an additional .84 miles and it is well worth hiking.

Great scenery but the trails weren't marked very well

Highly recommend this trail.
Hiking among such beauty is so awesome.

Cavern tour is great walking experience with a wonderful history lesson that was an additional bonus.

Family friendly cavern tour. Took a backpack carrier for my 15 month old. She did great on the 1.5 mile tour.
