Comments: The best views on the trail are near the start and along the Mesa Trail loop that lies at the end of the this trail. Much of the trail surface is sandy, which provided lots of animal tracks to examine along the way. We encountered only one other person on the trail, a single rider with two mules. The trail a bit overgrown, so watch out for those panhandle stickers, which are quite painful!

"This book will be in great demand by travelers, park visitors, and aficionados of Texas landscapes." -- James Wright Steely, Director of National Register Programs, Texas Historical Commission Whether you enjoy looking at scenic landscapes, touring historical sites, camping, fishing, hiking, backpacking, swimming, boating, horseback riding, rock climbing, or almost any other outdoor recreation, there's a state park in Texas where you can pursue your pleasure. From the Panhandle to the Rio Grande Valley, the Pineywoods to the Big Bend, some 125 state parks offer you a natural escape from fast-lane living. This book is the only official and complete guide to the state parks of Texas. Loaded with accurate, up-to-date information from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, it describes the attractions of each park and gives details-- including a locator map-- about camping and lodging facilities, types of recreation offered, and addresses and phone numbers for more information. To assist you in planning trips, the parks are grouped into seven geographic regions-- Big Bend Country, Gulf Coast, Hill Country, Panhandle Plains, Pineywoods, Prairies and Lakes, and the South Texas Plains. With gorgeous color photographs and an inviting text, Laurence Parent depicts the natural features and attractions of each region. So if you want to watch the sunset over Enchanted Rock, fish in the surf on the beach at Galveston, or listen for a ghostly bugle among the ruins of Fort Lancaster, let this book be your complete guide. Don't take a trip in Texas without it.
