Comments: This is my first logged hike in the Austin Explorer website. I hiked this just this early evening while on the way home from work. Easy to get to the trailhead from the parking lot. In just under a half hour I saw one of the best sunsets of the summer, a family of geese, an egret, a scissortail, a mockingbird flying across the creek at full speed. I took the labyrinth trail and walked the entire labyrinth to great pleasure and calm. I saw one fisherman, two couples, a labrador and two small dogs. I will return often during the week for a quick hike and reflection.
