Hiking nearly 3 miles up, down, and around the backbone of a ridge, with forest, cactus, and undergrowth reaching to the trail’s edge, makes this feel like the wilderness. Two ponds offer resting points on their fishing piers. Downtown Austin can be seen from one of the overlooks. Start on the Primitive Trail, reputed to be the best in the southeast Austin area. No maps are available, but there is a large map board at the trailhead. Trail markers are numbered 1 through 60.
