Location: San Angelo State Park

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 7.30 Miles  Elapsed Time: 3 hours


Out    Playground parking area > Tasajilla Flats > Nature Loop > Lanky Lackey > Suzanne's Trail . Burkett park         3.7 miles

Return Burkett park > Winding Snake > Chaparral > Red Dam Loop > Chaparral > Playground parking area     3. 6 miles

Temps in the mid 50's, partly cloudy, strong wind.

Easy hike today along damp trails. The trails are better looking than in the recent past since the vegetation has died back although Red Dam Loop was still overgrown in more than one spot, so much that unless you knew where the trail was, you might have wandered off it.

Lots of birds out as well as a few deer.  I saw an Orange Crowned Warbler as well as kestrels, numerous sparrows and other birds.   


Water, shade, info kiosk and toilets available at Playground parking area.
