Comments:

new "BCRT" cement markers were put out today starting from Twin Lakes park to the Brushy Creek lake, marking only 2.75 miles (they are in 1/4 of miles, slly should have been no less than 1/2 mile).  I don't know where the 5 miles or 4 miles as the cedar park website comes from, round trip, it's 6.  If you go east past the dam, it's in Round Rock and then called Lake Creek Trail, I belive as we were walking to the dam and saw a cement marker "24", as the trail goes all along Hairy Man Road (Brushy Creek Road or 174).

Lots of Bluebonnets in the sunny parts of the trail, bridges and nice waterfall near the Twin Lakes park.  Quite a bit of walkers/runners and bikes today, not too many dogs (which have to be on leashes).  Will take my camera next time!

Take a ride on the Fredericksburg & Northern Railroad, follow the historic Mormon trails from Travis Peak Community to Medina Lake, visit Enchanted Rock, and much more. This book gives you historic tidbits, folklore, and geography; detailed listings of lodgings, restaurants, and entertainment; major attractions, including state parks, museums, and historic places; directions, days and hours of operation, addresses, and phone numbers; and maps and calendar of events. This updated sixth edition contains even more destinations than ever before!

The author apologizes for the lack of table of contents and index that seem to be absent in the Kindle edition. He is working with the publisher to remedy the problem. They are present in the paperback version.
