Fun, flat, and well marked trail. Several fallen trees throughout.

Why is this saying Carrollton?

I am not a fan! I would love to see them fix this up and bring traffic back to Mesquite! There are no signs, I went there before I had this app, just used common sense! For 2 women, it seems scary, so I would recommend not going alone! Use the restroom before you arrive!

Great trail! Maintained well without making it a bike path. The Aldridge Saw Mill is a creepy cool reward at the end, great place to take a break, cook some hot dogs and then head back. Cool weather a must in my opinion.

It's beautiful. Easy walk with lots if variation in scenery.

Great trail, beautiful vistas. My hubby got some wonderful shots of the blue skies, canyonlands and flowers & insects. We did get almost "lost" at one point and ended up hiking over 5 miles rather than 3.6. There are no signs along the trails, only at intersections. It was fine, however, we were able to make our way back quickly!

Fantastic trail but absolutely agree that this is NOT A MODERATE TRAIL! Definitely difficult with the steep stairs up and down for miles. It is beautiful though and a killer leg/flute workout. Definitely planning on coming back!

Plus there are some dogs not on leash and they would be way too hyperactive running up to invade my Great Pyrenees’ space. I was able to stop those dogs, but if your dog is rambunctious, keep em leashed!

It’s the Pat O rourke trail. Parking at hospital in a gravel lot

I really liked this hike. Take a stick as it gets pretty steep. I would also recommend actual hiking boots or something with lots of grip—lots of loose rocks. Such a beautiful view of the Franklin Mountains and the Mammoth Rock which is my FAVORITE El Paso landmark.

Fun trail to get some miles in. Way safer than riding on a public road.

This is a great little trail through the woods near Cypress Creek. There's an area at the beginning where people have dumped trash and tires, but it appears to be very old. There are areas where it's hard to tell where the trail goes, and some sandy, washed out sections. Plenty of roots and little hills to make it interesting, and in the middle of the week it was quiet. I brought my toddler in our jogging stroller, which was fine but next time I'll probably pack him.

Great condition. I love running this one.

Very nice, flat hike through older pine trees and hardwoods. a few mud holes, but worked around them.

Beautiful 360 degree views of the hill country from atop of Enchanted Rock. A little strenuous walk up the rock, but too bad of you are in decent shape. A true Texas gem

cute trails. my dog loved it.

We really enjoy hiking nature trail, it’s one of our favorite hikes in the west Austin area. Typically we start at the bottom (playground and pond) and treat it as an out and back. To make it a loop you have to walk through neighborhoods back to the trailhead. Parking can get very tight on weekends and I heard a rumor that they were going to start charging $10 per person to use the trail. I don’t know when that’s supposed to go into effect. There are a few shorter connecting trails that are pretty, but require crossing the creek. There are 2-4 creek crossings on the main trail, so waterproof hiking shoes are recommended. There are no facilities or water at either trailhead.

We took our dogs out to Lake Pflugerville and had a very nice walk. It’s definitely not a hike, the trail is wide enough for two strollers to walk side by side and flat enough for a road bike. That being said, it was a pleasant walk and there were plenty of places to stop and sit or let the dogs paddle in the lake. There is zero shade though and on a sunny day it might be kind of brutal.

Easy, paved trail. Great for walking, running, cycling, and leashed dogs. Occasional benches (or rocks), garbage bins & pet waste stations. Pretty views.
