Location: Good Water Trail

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 28.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: 2 days, 2 hours


Solo trip - started at Cedar Breaks after drive from Houston.  Frequently lost trail and finally camped at Sawyer (nice site).  Pushed around Tejas to Walnut for day 2 - Camped by noon for an afternoon of fishing.  Hiked back around to and over the dam and drove home.

Fantastic hike - though the trail could use some maintenance.  Bridges near Crockett Springs are falling apart and markings for the trail are few and far between.  If you like route finding challenges, limestone cliffs, cedar and hardwood forest, grassy uplands and cacti - this is a great trip.  Don't forget the fishing pole - you end up camping at Walnut pretty early.
