Comments: This trail is a pleasant surprise for the North Texas area. It's an hour and a half from Dallas and the terrain is both fun and challenging. It goes up and down, next to cliffs, by the lake, and into the middle of no where. I hikeed from Juniper point to the five-mile camp and then did the lost loop trail. It was very enjoyable, and the swim in the lake rejuvinates the legs. Make sure you go early in the morning in summer before the heat really comes out, I was caught still hiking around noon and was drenched with sweat. (It was 95 by then)I went during the week and never a single person on the trail, and only saw 2 or 3 boats on the lake.
