South Shore Roadrunner Loop

One of the commonly seen birds at the park but nonetheless, always enjoyable to spot!
User: MikeHikes - 1/20/2017

Location: San Angelo State Park

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 3.20 Miles  Elapsed Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes


Route   Playground parking area > Roadrunner Loop > Playground parking area

Temps in the low 60's, mostly sunny with whispy clouds and variable winds.

First entry for 2017.  Starting with 1572 miles hiked and 204 log entries.

The loop is designated "hikers only". The trail is easy to traverse and can be done by anyone who can walk. It has one or two very slight inclines but for the most part is level.  There are a few areas where rocks and/or grass is prevalent but the majority of the trail is packed dirt.  After a rain, it will be muddy.

You are walking alongside roads and camping areas at the South Shore - you can't get lost!  Birds are usually plentiful and today I saw quite a few "common birds" nothing unusual.


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

Water, shade and toilets available at the camping area near the half way point.

Water and shade available at numerous camp sites along the roads.
