Hiked Blue Trail finished with White Trail

Cacti along the Blue Trail
User: jmitchell - 9/2/2007

Location: Dinosaur Valley State Park

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 4.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: 2 hours


Lots of very noisy people in the river area (a circus) and lots of trash everywhere. I took off on the Blue trail for some solitude. For the most part I had it for myself. Towards the end I ran into several groups of hikers (family types), several of them lost and searching for a way back (blue/white connection point). I also took a wrong path, ended up trying to bushwack back to the right place, was denied and ended up back-tracking to the correct (not marked very well) trail. I had to wade knee deep water to cross the river so be prepared for some wet river crossings. Was pretty enjoyable anyway, but I would suggest a non-holiday weekday if you want some solitude.

Note: The gift shop always has some pretty inexpensive footprint castings for arouund $20-$30.
