Miles Hiked: 11.80 Miles  Elapsed Time: N/A

Comments: Mileage is from 2 trips. Hiked all of front country, bluff spurs, far reaches. Lots of butterflies, varieties of cactus, and rocks. Front country is very unimpressive, backcountry seems to have some nice areas. Fee is $6 per person over 13 years, waived with Texas Parks Pass. Bikes are allowed (more bikers than hikers). Trails close early, backcountry 4 PM, frontcountry 5 PM, gates 6 PM. http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/spdest/findadest/parks/government_canyon/#sch
