This has to be one of my favorite trails. Fantastic views, good workout for hiking running or walking. I camped here for about a week. Saw much more variety of wildlife than any other park I have been to.

This review is for the main loop trail in Davis Mts State Park. It is the combination of the Skyline Drive trail which ends into the CCC trail. The Skyline trail starts at the Interpretive center. The CCC trail ends near the start of the skyline trail. The loop is a little over 4 miles. There are good switchbacks at the beginning of the Skyline, you climb about 600 ft. There are good views once you reach the ridge. There is a lookout of the old Indian Lodge built back in the 1930's which is also in the park.
I found it very enjoyable. Saw only one person. You can add another 3.0 miles if you take the trail down and back to Fort Davis. (1.5 miles each way). I did not hike down to the Fort. In parts the trail is crushed square rock. Hard on the feet if you have no sole protection.
Saw a Tarantula as a bonus. See photo.
I included the link for the state map which shows all the trails. There are a couple other smaller trails also.

Beautiful vistas every where you turn & a great view of the University of Texas McDonald Observatory in the distance. We found a treasure under a big tree at the top near a fence!
