What a dork
Me at the end of the hike. I was pretty gassed. (Photo by texaskdog)
There is a nice lake near one of the trailheads. (Photo by Lone_Star)

Trail Marker
Sort of a weird, jenga kind of trail marker. (Photo by Lone_Star)
Really liked the creeks here. Great for dogs and people of all ages. (Photo by 2AOutdoorsman)

Warning at the top trailhead
Always a sign of great things to come when there are Emergency Exits off of the trail you are about to go on! (Photo by jtkatie)
Go down to go back up
One of the most frustrating parts of this trail... you go down dozens of steps into gullies just to go back up the other side! (Photo by jtkatie)
Mile marker
The trail has very well-marked distances... although the gap from 1.5-2.0 on the way up seems a LOT longer! (Photo by jtkatie)
The view!
The view from the top of the hill is quite spectacular! (Photo by jtkatie)
The beginning of one of the most strenuous sections of the trail! (Photo by jtkatie)
Nice spot
One of the lovely resting areas with what seem to be brand new benches (Photo by jtkatie)
As you can see, the trail is well-constructed and well-used (Photo by jtkatie)
Wooden bridges
There are many wooden bridges throughout the "Lower Panther Trail" section (Photo by jtkatie)
The northern half of the trail contains the openings in the tree cover enough to garner a view such as this one. (Photo by Austin Explorer)
Stairs, stairs and more stairs. This trail has them. There are some nice benches on which to rest as well though. (Photo by Austin Explorer)
