Brought my "60 hikes book" but they offer a better map at the trailhead for free.  Took the HIllview trail which gets VERY steep along the right/west side of park.  Took the Red Oak which I didn't enjoy as much but Hillview was great.  Tower offered a nice view.  Came back on Yucca to the east til it hit Hillview.  Lots of people for a Wednesday morning and at least a dozen large planes flew over.  VERY well marked at every intersection so don't worry about getting lost.  I'd love to hike this more if I didn't live in Austin.
