Location: Balcones Park

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 2.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: 1 hour


No water in the creek.  Very little water from the springs, guess because of the drought. 

he trails away from the creek go everywhere unmarked.  When went away from the creek on one of the trails, it lead to the volleyball & horseshoe area.  Couldn't find a well marked trail out to the parking lot/pool area. 

There needs to be trash cans in a lot of the areas other than the pool and playground, as there was a lot of trash.  Tires were near the turn-around area along with a lot of old lumber.  A trail map would be nice at beginning of the trail too.
