    The best part of the trail was the beginning, when you're at the lower falls. after that--aside from the ruins of McKinney's old summer home--there wasn't much on this trail that you can't find on any other much more secluded trail.

    I hiked this trail before all the rains came to texas it was dry but you could tell the waterfall will be very beautiful when it rains, the trail however was a little disappointing it was pretty easy not much of a challenge and some of the trail was next to a road which took away escaping from civilization, the trail also comes up on the backside of Texas Parks and Wildlife headquarters which is not the great if your looking for a rugged challenging hike so if you wana nice stroll through some wooded areas this is it but if your looking for a challenge then this isnt your place
