I love all of the trails at the Balcones Canyonlands Wildlife Refuge. the Vista Knoll Trail is moderate with Rocky Terrain and a gorgeous view of parts of Lake Travis. Completely worth the 26 mile drive from my house.

Wonderful trail. Had both 8 y.o. twin girls and our 3 y.o. son. They had a blast. Only saw three other people so kids were able to run ahead a bit. Did all the trails, about 3 miles, and kids still wanted to keep going. Will return.

No trail markers, endless branches off the trail, very limited shade and a lack of wildlife make this a trail to skip.

Good family trail we also did the trail up to the lookout. Nice view of the 40 foot low lake Travis, good rest spot. If you do all 3 trails its about 3.25 miles.

This 0.5 mile loop is only worth the trip if you also hike the Cactus Rock (1.5 mile) and the Ridgeline (1.4 mile) as all three come together at one point. The Ridgeline is probably the most technical of the three but all provide good canopy and views. It's a nice hike. We ended up hiking 3.78 miles in total in just over 1 hr and 50 min. No pets are allowed.

We have a home being built in the Highlands at Mayfield Ranch and heard there were trails around the sub division. We just scratched the surface this morning. It's a flat and easy hike and the trails led us to the Williamson County Regional Park that is absolutely excellent and well maintained. There is a disc golf course that I've been wanting to do and will do so tomorrow morning at it and a splash pad for all to cool off. We took our little pooch and he got tuckered out so we had to cut it short but will return tomorrow to explore more of the many trails. I'm sure I will frequent this often since it's gonna be in my back yard. :)
