I took a quick Sunday afternoon trip to PFSP and made the 4 mile loop. I almost backed out of doing the 4 mile loop because the river was so high. It got pretty tricky wading acrolls Trammel crossing with the current. The trail is  pretty much typical for a hill country SP trail (old ranch road) but was still quite enjoyable. It had its moments when the scenery was very good. I especally enjoyed spending some time looking at an old rock wall and cemetery located in the NE corner of the trail. I did some research trying to find more information about the old cemetary but I found nothing other than a few comments from other hikers. Beware if you hike this trail in the summer heat make sure and bring plenty of water. The biggest part of the trail in in direct sunlight. The trip back through the ford was nice. I spent some time letting my feet soak after the hike. All in all a nice little hike.
