For this hike my son and his best friend came along and they were glad they did. We had a great time but it should be noted that the best part of the trail system is closed but you can get to it from another trail and it is well worth it. The waterfalls were awesome and there was enough hills to make it just hard enough for the boys to stay occupied. The park was very busy but it was labor day so it is to be expected. I only can hope that the Corp repairs the bridges and reopens the trail as the park is just not complete without it! But all in all very worth it.

Ok for a quick hike

Overall it is a nice trail system well maintained and marked. The park like most in the area suffered damage from the flood a couple of years ago and still is not back to full capaicty. The buldings are cool as they are the old CCC built types and the water tower is awesome. Overall good for the kids.

Great trails but...

My son and I camped and hiked the trails that the park had to offer. The camping was not as good as I would have hoped for, the sites are way close together. The trails were in need some maintenance. On two of the trails we got to almost the end of them and then the trail stoped or was blocked by downed tress. Overall though this park is very nice.

Pretty nice treaure in Waco

I took my 12yo son and his best friend on this hike. We had a good time and enjoyed the trails. There are a lot of trails in this area, more than they show on this site. Most of them are old roads that have been converted to trails. The trail was very active the day that we were there since they have discovered Bald Eagles in this area. Overall though it was nice but could use better trail markers in areas.
