Comments: Seriously, this was an enjoyable afternoon hike. We went around Hale Lake, headed north across the road along big creek, then cottonwood bayou, along the bluestem trail, kept straight onto the whiteoak trail, followed the river all the way south, then came back up on the red buckeye to the parking lot by hale lake. Well maintained trails, didn't see any aligators on this route like I've heard in reviews for the more western trails. Encountered many armadillos though! Only came across a couple other groups of people. The terrain is flat, but densely wooded for most of it.
