This park opened in 1984 and has 40 miles of multiuse trails crisscrossing 5369 acres of grassy valleys, steep limestone hills, and spring-fed streams. The donors of the bulk of the park’s acreage requested that it be kept natural and untouched, so only basic facilities are provided (hence the caveat on the park website). This hike wanders through typical Hill Country landscapes, including rocky slopes, old ranch facilities, and a clear, flowing stream. From the headquarters area, look for the marker for Trail 8 directly across the road that brought you in. The rock and dirt trail undulates up and down a gentle rise, gradually becoming rockier. You will likely hear the chirps of cardinals and the whirring of their wings, and may glimpse the bright red birds against the green of junipers.
