Comments: I did this hike and had the trail to myself, except for a brief encounter with a roadrunner and a mountain biker. The views are very nice, but with most of the trail following an 8' or 10' gravel road, it was not exactly the experience I was hoping for. I love to hike under tree cover with the feeling of being a trailblazer, not the feeling of one following an abandoned dirt road. The gravel is loose in spots, and I had quite a good fall when going downhill. The wildflowers were in full bloom, and butterflies were everywhere. I plan to take my family back to the primitive camping area later this year. What the trail lacked in difficulty, it made up for in length and scenic views. I will return, but I think my favorite local hike is still Friedrich Park in San Antonio.
