We were running out of time at Tyler SP and needed to hit the road to head back to Austin, but we figured that we had enough time for the EZ loop. Nothing spectacular, but a nice walk in the woods.

This is a shared trail with bikes, but we ran across no one on our trip - hiker or biker. Bikes are supposed to go clockwise and hikers counter-clockwise - as nicely shown on the milemakers that they had every 1/4 mile.

Quite a few areas of the trail were overgrown, so it would have been more pleasant if we had long pants on. At least our hiker-socks helped! :-)

As the distances for the various loops do not seem to be posted online, here they are:

EZ loop: 0.74 miles

A loop: 2.53 miles

B loop: 3.10 miles

C loop: 1.47 miles

D loop: 2.14 miles

Blackjack: 0.35 miles

Lake: 2.08 miles

Whispering Pines: 1.67 miles
