Comments: I started at Jim Hogg park and headed west toward Russell park. This section of the trail weaves gently along the side of the lake bluff providing a peaceful walk through typical central Texas flora, lots of Oaks & Cedar. It was peaceful with occasional chirping birds. A minus were the dogs from area (rarely visible) neighborhoods who did go on periodic barking sprees. There are some distant lake views. At one point, the trail crosses a creek and steeping stones have been provided. A small pool is above the crossing area that is feed by a small waterfall ... the size may be the result of the current drought conditions. Overall, this was a very pleasant, enjoyable hike. I am looking forward to traveling other sections. I was pleased to see the total lack of any trash :) Way to go fellow hikers! Sturdy shoes are recommended.
