Took my kids hiking. Can't you just see the excitement on their faces? ;-P

Location: South Llano River State Park

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 3.20 Miles  Elapsed Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes


On my way back from Sonora Caverns, I decided on a whim to pull into South Llano River State Park to get a little exercise in.

I took my kids with me on the Fawn Trail.  It was fairly late in the afternoon so we did not have time to take a longer hike.  I'm not sure my kids wanted to take a longer hike anyways. :-)

Although I have informally hiked trails and parks for years, this was my first logged hike and I found the trails not marked as well as I would have liked.  I had to refer to the trail map several times to ensure I wasn't off course.

There were some rolling hills along the route, but nothing difficult.  I did not see any wildlife and the scenery wasn't all that impressive either, although it was nice walking out in nature.

I did not see anyone else on the trail, although there were a number of people at the campsite.
