Twin Peaks Trek Professional Review and Guide
"Energetic types who want the best of the Hill Country without preamble should tackle this short, strenuous loop that climbs to the top of the Twin Peaks in the Hill Country State Natural Area. Here, you and the soaring vultures can enjoy the sight of green peaks and valleys stretching to the horizon in every direction."
--Charlie Llewellin and Johnny Molloy, 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: San Antonio & Austin (Menasha Ridge Press).
The hike was a pleasant surprise. It had a diverse terrain, moderate in difficulty, and lots of nooks to explore. If you head to the falls you will encounter your typical state park crowds but the trail itself was relatively empty. The hike has great coverage with most of the trail being shaded and plenty of spots to rest and take in a good view. I left pretty early to get a jump on the weather and it hiked faster than anticipated. I finished the 7.4 loop in a little over 2 hours with two significant breaks. There is hardly elevation but the rocky trail can offer some fun trekking. Make sure to take your water as most of the creeks were completely dry. Overall, its one of the better hikes I have taken in Texas.
