Me and some friends camped here at the state park, and camped one day.  Overall the trail was decent, with alot of it near the shoreline, however there were spider webs everywhere that would get in your face as well as nats.  We did however see 2 turtles, and 2 small deer while on the trail.  We hiked the entire trail, and it was a nice hike for some good exercise and to enjoy nature.  This is a hike for a family more than hikers wanting somthing advanced.  Overall this was a good park (camping areas are great), and the hiking is alright for being close to Dallas.  I would go back again, but with insect repelent.
