Comments: This hike was great for a flashlight hike (after dark hike). The Onion Creek trail provided a paved trail... difficult to get lost. Easy footing for when the sun went down. It gets pretty dark out there. The trail travels through the camping sites & gave us some great ideas of where we'd like to camp next. Great for a group of hikers who were wandering around like the seven dwarfs with headlamps on their hats. All we needed to do was sing "hi ho". There were so many funky bugs & spiders along the way. I think if anything I would rename the hike "spider alley" for the MANY spiders we saw. There were some BIG Texas spiders there! Many of which were hanging out in the middle of the trail.
