The west side of the trails still have ashes from the previous fire.
This day was a pretty nice one, there were only a few people there when I arrived, but it got a bit more busier as the day wore on. The walk along the beach was really exciting. The waves were active and my dog enjoyed running and playing in them. Again I carried my North face Recon pack and small fanny pack. So it was a good hike.
Me and some friends camped here at the state park, and camped one day. Overall the trail was decent, with alot of it near the shoreline, however there were spider webs everywhere that would get in your face as well as nats. We did however see 2 turtles, and 2 small deer while on the trail. We hiked the entire trail, and it was a nice hike for some good exercise and to enjoy nature. This is a hike for a family more than hikers wanting somthing advanced. Overall this was a good park (camping areas are great), and the hiking is alright for being close to Dallas. I would go back again, but with insect repelent.
The trail was nice- not hard to follow and would be great for beginners. We were lucky and were the only hikers on the trail so we could work it at our own pace. Tree coverage is great making it easy to hike during the hottest days. I would reccomend this to a family looking to enjoy a good hike with a little bit of adventure.
