Nice Hike
Good Water Trail - 3/11/2006  [View Log Page]
Rating: Difficulty: Solitude:
Distance: 26.00 Miles Duration: N/A
Enjoyed packing around Lake Georgetown. We searched for the trailhead at Cedar Breaks Park (the attendent said it was just at the bottom of the hill) and ended up taking some deer trails instead. Bushwacking was quite fun. A detailed trail map, including the bike trails would be a big plus. There were few other hikers on the trail, except for some Boy Scouts preparing for Phillmont - Go Scouts! The lake water was a bit silty, we treated it and were fixing to start cooking. When the Scouters noticed and offered to filter it for us. What a wonderful good turn. If you're looking for quite this is not the place to go. There was plenty of air traffic and motor boat noise every day. At the end of the Good Water Trail, we followed mountain bike trails the rest of the way around. The trails were well marked with red tape and very nice, it was my favorite part of the whole hike. We saw only one or two bikes the whole day. Because of nice weather, walking over the dam was eazy. On hot days, it would be best to plan the dam crossing as early as possible.
Nice walk in the woods
4-C Hiking Trail - 1/14/2006  [View Log Page]

Beautiful, well marked trail. We parked at the overlook and hiked to Pond Camp. Hunters trashed out the area, so we made our own camp not far away. We didn't see anyone else all day Saturday and only one other group of hikers on Sunday. The trail was covered in leaves and views were as good as it gets for the piney woods of East Texas. Ticks are still a problem and one must check often to ensure they don't become a problem.
Big Bend lives up to its reputation
Big Bend - South Rim - 11/12/2005  [View Log Page]

We camped on the South Rim for 4 nights and that just wasn't enough. Great place for a challenging, and beautiful hike. Sitting on the edge of the rim feeling the warm winds rushing past our faces was a thrill. Watching the ravens and falcons in combat was better then TV. The sunsets were colorful. Cannot wait to go back again and again!
Nice park, lots of gators

Camp volunteers were firendly, waterstations for dogs on main trils. Once off of the main trails we had the place to ourselves. Clean restrooms and friendly visitors everywhere. Lots of wildlife to see. Nice experience.
great hike, great climb

We camped E-Rock to avoid Hurricane Rita. Becasue we were evacuee's we camped for free. Thank You Texas! During the week there were very few others at the park, the weekend saw a few more folks show up. Never was it crowded. Restrooms were clean, campsites were far enough apart to avoid the cramped in feeling. Views were wonderful, trails marked very well. Hiking the dome at night was way cool.
