Cool Spring Hike

Took my 6 year old grandson on the west trail again along with son/girlfriend, and wife. A nice hike for all. Mountain laurels and Redbuds in full bloom! Smell the mountain laurels: grape bubble gum smell. Seeds are poisonus, though!
Another nice morning hike

Here's how you get a 4.5 enjoyability and a 4.5 solitude! Arrive at the Loop Trail trailhead (west side) before dawn! Just as it gets light, proceed. We saw bucks in the velvet, does, fawns, and raccoons. Hill country is very cool, weather wise, in the early mornings. We continued on the Loop Trail and then went north through the Walnut Springs campground. Followed it around to where it crossed the Loop Trail again, but took the Echo Canyon trail back toward the Summit Trail. We were the only ones hiking; everyone else was still sleeping. Because of our early start, we stayed cool and got to see wildlife you ordinarily wouldn't see. Then as soon as we got back close to the summit trail, you could see a line of folks just starting up to the summit; but we were already done and smiling! They looked so HOT. It was so nice, we did the exact same hike the next day!
Nice for kids!

Parked at Elm Lake and headed westward onto the Elm Lake Loop Trail but turned west, once we got to the southwestern end of the lake, and headed to the observation tower. Went back the way we came. Saw numerous alligators up close and personal! Lot's of folks walking, biking, etc. Kids had a blast.
Good for kids!

If you have kids and want to introduce them to hiking, this is the one! Parked south of 40 Acre Lake and took the 40 Acre Lake Trail to the observatory and then walked back. Saw two alligators; kids had a blast. They can take their bikes too!
