Comments: The overlook mentioned on this page is one of the best I have found in the city, if not the best. I just so happened to stop by here on a day when migratory birds were coming through the region. The island that you see from the bluff is an oasis for birds of all kinds, and it is a regular breeding habitat for local cranes you might see up and down the town lake trail. Very strange to see this in the middle of the city; it looks out of place. Otherwise this trail is in need of a lot of help. I wouldn't make this a day hike; at best it is a good extension on bike from the playing fields next to Longhorn Damn.
