Decided to do a overnighter so I hiked the yellow trail, with a few side trails along the way. Left Tadra camp area ($4.00 for overnight camp) at 10 am hiked until 5pm camped in pine tree area on north end of trail about a mile past outback gate. Nice area to camp. got up at 6:30 broke camp and got back to truck around 10am. I was able to get pics of three deer, a armadillo, one beaver and a couple of snakes. A couple of things you need to know the map shows the trail to be 10.5 miles I would say it really is about 13 miles, would be a great day hike,and take extra water. TAKE EXTRA WATER THERE IS NONE THERE. I took 120 oz and that was just enough for my trip. I also went during the week so the horse riders would not be there, I only saw one group the whole trip. None the second day.
have been waiting for cooler weather, finally found a cool morning to go back to LBJ. It was a weekend and there were quite a few horse riders on trail but very nice hike, but grass was very wet due to recent rains. take extra water none on trail
If you have a chance take a trip to see the grasslands. It is well worth the drive.
