Southeast Metropolitan Park, Primitive Trail

We visited this park in late April when a large variety of wild flowers were in bloom ... very pretty. We never saw any other people while on the trail. There were a couple of nice scenic views with downtown Austin in the background. The trail is very well maintained. You can do the entire loop in less than an hour.

I was concerned that this trail wouldn't be challenging enough until I came to the unpaved section. I nearly went end to end based on the All Trails map, clocked 3.86 miles in 1 hour and 53 minutes and burned about 2,200 calories on this trail. I am a beginner hiker and this was a good beginner trail. Parts of it are literally just outside of the backyards of homes in the neighborhood which is a bit odd. I may do this trail again, but it won't be a regular one for me. There is a good part of the trail that is on the All Trails map that doesn't exist on Google maps or the Austin Explorer map. That part of the trails is more challenging and less covered - it begins just to the left of the big rocky incline that ends near Brimfield Dr.

Not a bad park, the restrooms were quite nasty. The rest of the place is pretty nice.

Tejas Trail

My wife and I are trying desperately to find campsites that are quiet. We had hoped that Tejas Camp could accommodate our search but alas, this place is almost as bad as everywhere else. First thing, BUGS, everywhere. All the time. Have you ever seen a spittlebug? Go here to fill that need. It's also a virtual pill bug preserve complete with breeding program. Anyway, the sites are spread out but the camp host doesn't do anything to enforce quiet hours. The trails go directly through the sites so you have no privacy. The scenery is peaceful and pretty but overall I felt like the experience wasn't any different than camping at Enchanted Rock.

This was my first hike in quite a while and I wasn't sure what to expect. I was surprised by the amount of shade provided and was glad to have it. 90 minutes in and 60 out. Great trail to hike for beginners or someone looking for an easy to moderate challenge.

Lake Mineral Wells State Trailway Trails

I hiked from garner west to lake mineral wells state park. I really like the flat and soft surface allows you to look around and up when walking, not down at surface. I wish there was more shade. And the portion I walked had a road beside it the entire time. I saw many lively rabbits and cardinals.

I parked car at garner and hiked trail way to park. The rock climbing hollow was unique. On the other side of the lake are most of the hiking trails. The park ranger told me they were closed due to rain, but I hiked them anyway. Pretty, varied terrain. Very isolated after crowds in the lake area. The primitive camping area was a big letdown.

Hiked this trail on Jan. 6th, 2015 as a "warm up" to summiting Guadalupe Peak on the 7th. I saw a few Mule Deer on the way up. Camped at Pine Top campground and had the entire place to myself. It was WONDERFUL! Lots of big trees and pine needles galore to use as a "pad" of which I pitched my tent upon!
