Not a bad hike for being inside Loop 610!  Some car noise on the westernmost trail, but that faded quickly and the rest of the hike was quiet.  Nice changes of scenery, going from heavy woods to meadows to small ponds within a short distance.  Some elevation changes in the northwest section of the hike, but overall pretty flat.  You'll pass others as you hike, and sometimes even a class of elementary school students on a field trip.
