This hike traverses classic Texas Hill Country terrain, with views of the surrounding area and plenty of variety and a natural spring at the far end of the loop. There are distance markers at every half mile. From the trailhead, the path leads through juniper and oak trees and open spaces, rising up and dipping down for a mile before crossing the usually dry Bee Creek. The surface alternates gravel, rock, and crushed asphalt, with occasional sandy or dirt surfaces. After crossing the creek, you pass through some taller trees—including pecan, elm, sycamore, walnut, and hackberry—mixing shade and sun, then head downhill near 1.5 miles to cross another creek, then pass a primitive camping area.
