Difficulty: 3stars  Solitude: 5stars
Miles Hiked: 8.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: N/A


The trail was hard to follow at points, especially with so much leaf fall. I followed the car tracks beyond the trail turnaround for about 3/4 mile and found myself at a lake inlet dotted with birdhouses. Litter was all too common along the driftwood sites. Other than that, the hike was extremely enjoyable. If you enjoy photographing wildlife, bring a camera and be ready - I spotted at least six armadillos, a black snake, a few lizards, a hawk, a blue heron, and various smaller birds. The high degree of solitude was refreshing and occasional unobscured views of Lake Granger were lovely. I recommend the trail to hikers that enjoy a raw trail full of surprises.
