Comments:

There were a lot of mountain bikers, but just as many hikers.  The trails are very clearly marked.  I did the Joe Johnston trail, to Little Windmill, to Sendero Balcones, back to the recharge trail, and home.  An early start is best, as it was really hot by Noon.  I was on a limited time frame, but I look forward to getting back when I have more time.
