The last couple times I've hiked this I haven't seen a soul on the trail.  Might have to do with the 100+ degree heat...  BRING WATER! 

First time on Lone Star Trail.

Hiked the loop plus some side trails in a couple days.  Fantastic place to visit.  The weather was great.  Hike in plenty of water.  Flies were quite bad.  Not many people on the trails.  Saw a mountion lion!  I will be back to hike this again.

Good day hike/over night

I hiked the majority of the trails in one day.  The campsites are nice.  Only saw a couple people.  Besure to get a site on the bluffs just above the river, not above the creek :)  There are a couple rock walls good for climbing on the north side of the bluffs.  When I went in mid-may, it was very hot! So be prepared.

Great quick view

I climb this hill every time I go to Austin, usually before I adventure into the city. It has some great views! I suggest taking the senic route (Scenic Rd) which goes along the hills/shore of the lake.
