Great for kids
Friedrich Wilderness Park - 5/29/2006  [View Log Page]
Rating: Difficulty: Solitude:
Distance: 5.50 Miles Duration: N/A
I often take these trails with my 3 year old boy and 1 year old girl. It is nice to have a park like this so close to the city. My son has now hiked every trail there, under his own power, so I don't know why anyone would rate the difficulty as 4 stars out of 5. Even with 50 lbs of gear and children, one can hike the entire park in an afternoon and be home for supper. Almost all trails are shaded.
Good close hike
Government Canyon State Natural Area - 5/29/2006  [View Log Page]
Rating: Difficulty: Solitude:
Distance: 11.80 Miles Duration: N/A
Mileage is from 2 trips. Hiked all of front country, bluff spurs, far reaches. Lots of butterflies, varieties of cactus, and rocks. Front country is very unimpressive, backcountry seems to have some nice areas. Fee is $6 per person over 13 years, waived with Texas Parks Pass. Bikes are allowed (more bikers than hikers). Trails close early, backcountry 4 PM, frontcountry 5 PM, gates 6 PM. http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/spdest/findadest/parks/government_canyon/#sch
