My favorite hike in Texas so far! Central Texas is lacking in trails with varying elevation, for sure. Not this place! Rocky hills, running creeks, and fall foliage during November. Quiet and peaceful, too. It's like a happy little secret place. I especially enjoyed examining the fossils along the Indiangrass Trail. I've got a ton of photos at the link I included!

What a great place! Crystal clear streams, fall foliage, and tons of fossils on the southeast corner of Indiangrass Trail. We followed the outer edge and hiked all the loops, and my track says it was just under 6 miles. Be aware that there are a few water crossings. Our feet got a little wet but it wasn't bad. Overall a great hike, and one of my favorites in Central Texas so far.

Hiked the Creek and Rimrock trails. Nice little hike with a running creek. Minimal wildlife if you don't count the lizards. Will go back to do the Indian grass trail soon.

My 7 year old and I hiked at Doeskin Ranch on Superbowl Sunday. We hiked the creek trail, rimrock trail, a part of shin oak trail, and Indian grass trail. The trails were well maintained and I did not see a single piece of trash. This is a diverse mix of trails that includes woods, a creek, a moderate incline/decline, prairie grass, and a pond.

We had an excellent time and the trails were easy enough for my little one but presented a small challenge. I really liked the fact that all of the trails intertwined, and we were able to hike on all of them, making one giant loop. We hiked just a little over 4 miles and only saw one other person on the trails. We will definitely be back and look forward to trying the other trails at the refuge. One of the best things about hiking is enjoying God's beautiful creations at little to no cost; this one was free. Happy hiking!

The headquarters entrance is closed on weekends. However, there is a place called Warbler Vista a few miles back and this is open on weekends. (Here is a map: http://www.fws.gov/uploadedFiles/508_WV_2012.pdf)

If you follow Ridgeline Trail all the way to the end, there is an amazing scenic overlook.

Much of the trails are shaded and the Ridgeline trail has a lot of fun inclines.

Multiple loops, minor inclines on some, benches if you tire, wet-weather stream. Very pretty.

Great trip! Very well-maintained trails and barely any crowd, even on a Saturday. Beautiful walk through forests, prairies and even by a small pond. Definitely recommend this for any sort of small day outing.
