Explore the most popular wildlife trails in Texas with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

I live right next to the park so I go there almost everyday to walk my dogs or just to go to get my nature fix. I love this little piece of paradise. Great trails, beautiful creek. My dogs love it too. They can swim in the creek and run around in the woods. There’s abundant wildlife and spring flowers everywhere. Also a good birding area and It’s terrific for bluebonnet photos!

I’m not actually rating the trail itself—I wasn’t able
to get to it. Every road we could find to it (In Apple Maps AND Google Maps) was blocked by gates.

3-16-18 Center and Refuge is open, only the West Riverbottom trail is closed. It is a nice place to hike, close to the city. It's Texas scenery so, nothing fabulous. Couldn't find any prairie dogs, but the bison are easily viewed.

Hiked up to the peak with my daughter. There’s a bit of a technical scramble to get up to the very peak, but if you’re not terribly afraid of heights, I’d recommend this trail to anyone. The peak view looking down on the basin was surreal and peaceful. We really enjoyed it.

My son 17 and I 45 enjoyed the change in terrain and clear markings along the way. It felt like we were traveling through different areas in one hike. We got a late start so we only made it through 12 of the 14 miles, I was pretty sore the next day with the changes in elevation on this hike.

Went with my husband. First thing we noticed was all the broken glass everywhere. It was ridiculous. Then the garbage all over, and I usually stop and pick the trash up but there was too much on this trail. There was 1 trash can that we came across along the trail. It’s unmarked as well. We passed 2 groups of people who were trying to get down to the water. We lived in CO for 7 years and hiked numerous trails within the springs and have never seen as much garbage and broken glass. We call it Hep C falls now. It was disappointing. My husband and I agreed, if the city took any time at all clearing some of the paths, marking some trails, and cleaning up this place it could be great.

This is a phenomenal trail. The view at the top and along the way is awesome. Parking is limited so go in the morning. Also there's almost no shade so go early to avoid overheating.

We started at Upper Canyon Trail then hiked to Haynes and came out at Lower Canyon trail and walked back to our car at the South Prong camping Area. Started the video a bit late but it took about 2.25 hours. After an easy and beautiful walk you will have a climb, its a bit rough but that was the only challenging section aside from duration. We didn’t detour to the cavern because we were afraid it would get dark on us. But its only a .20 hike off trail. Weather was perfect. We packed only 2qt and it sustained my daughter and I pretty well. Our overall hike was about 5 miles. View is spectacular and the trail is very well marked!

This was a great trail for our family. It is moderate level, but really nothing to difficult until the final ascent to the lighthouse itself. The trail and scenery continuously change, so it does not get repetitive or boring. Definitely bring lots of fluids and snacks for everyone.

Love it! My dog loves the trails.

Go towards the end of April/early May, and you will see all the wildflowers you have ever dreamed of.

Very well maintained trails and easily marked.

I have been out here a few times and like others mentioned the trail markings are pretty bad. Today we managed to follow the entire blue trail, about 8 miles. Please note we hiked. We did come across only one tree laying over the trail. My hiking partner today (he is also a mountain biker) said the trail was not the best, but bike-able. I figured out where I had gone wrong on my previous attempt to hike the blue trail. I had left the trail and followed some of the red trail to the paint ball area and ended up taking the blue trail back up the mountain and ended up losing the trail after the big uphill next to the intersection of Liberty Hill road and Nolan Road. The trail is designed to be followed from the parking lot at the Obstacle course clockwise. Some of the trail markings are not visible going the other direction. Some nice soul has marked some of the trail with blue spray paint and made staying on the trail a lot easier, because the "official" trail markings are sometimes misleading or flat out wrong (especially where the blue and green trails meet) I plan on going back and tying some flags on the trees soon. Personally I think the searching for the trail at times are part of the fun hiking this trail .... Please note that we had checked in at the entrance to BLORA , had gotten a map -just like the one in parking lot - and used it in conjunction with the GPS on my phone when we were unsure. The reason to check in is that the place is very little travelled and they ask you to at least call to let them know you are off the trail....

Good one but route post/pillars are not much helpful

Nice clean trail. Kid and pet friendly. There were. Lot of bike riders, but they were all friendly and gave warnings when passing.

Would be a favorite trail if it wasn’t for the trash and glass. I wish they could clean it up. :(

Very well-marked trail. No good drinking water found on the trail, as an fyi to others. Perfect weather conditions today. Not too sure why I didn’t see anyone else, but two gals at @ mile 9 on the way back during Spring Break. A definite loss for others who didn’t partake. Limited window in TX of ideal hiking weather- cool upper 60s/low 70’s and zero humidity.

It does feel like you're on another planet. Not many markings for the trail, but I don't think they're needed as you can just keep walking uphill.

Not very well marked, but decent views for the effort

Easy hike, good views

Well-kept, varied terrain & elevation, scenic trail in the middle of a suburb. Would give it a 5 but very crowded at noon on a weekday—of course, that’s a sign of its popularity, so just the price to pay for a good hike.

I was nervous before doing this and reading all reviews. I am a 30 year old that is a smoker and overweight and haven’t worked out in months. I did this trail had to stop a few times but other than that an overweight smoker can definitely do it! Totally worth it! Lots of stopping points to enjoy views. The best one is definitely from the top!

Paved trail with small creeks, a playground and picnic pavillon. Did not run across many people. the trail backs up to neighborhoods and houses.

Beautiful, mostly paved trail. If you go all the way to Bob Eden and back it’s about 5 miles.

Love it

View is definitely worth the hike.

really fun trail to take the kids on.

Marked trail head makes this easy to find. Climbing the huge boulders is fun if you go off trail just slightly. Then continue on, we had a nice picnic on one of the boulders with AMAZING views of the canyon. 3 of us plus 2 dogs really enjoyed this trail.

perfect to take a long walk with the dogs and "get lost".

such an awesome trail! hiked the 8 miles today with a friend and we had a great time. dirt trail mostly trees about half shaded and a little lake views.
