Pace Bend County Park Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This hike explores the high ground of a 1368-acre park occupying the tip of a 4-mile-long peninsula on the western shore of Lake Travis, which is formed by Mansfield Dam on the Colorado River. The shoreline on the west side of the peninsula is high limestone cliffs, while gentle slopes and beaches are the rule on the east side. This popular park can be crowded on weekends and in the summer, but on weekdays the rest of the year, you and your dog are likely to have it mostly to yourselves. Other than at the trailheads, the trails are not clearly marked, but park staff encourage hikers to feel free to explore and the area is bounded on all sides by a circular park road, so you’ll never be lost for long."
