    Started hike at Black Creek Lake which is a very pretty, small lake. It is mostly tree lined with huge pines on about 1/4 of its perimeter. Trail head is easy to find and trail is easy to follow. There are two very nice overlooks along the way and another small lake, Cottonwood Lake, at the end. Terrain. flora and fauna represent typical north Texas. John is right about the sandyness, I did it barefooted in those area!

    Trail starts off great. Trailhead is hidden, but once you find it, trail is very foresty, however a bit rocky. Then, the trail joins up with a series of trails defined by the National Grasslands, managed by the US Forest Service. These trails are almost exclusively used by equestrians. And, they have been pounded to a pulp. Easy to follow, however, you're walking in sand. It's like walking on a beach with any of the good stuff of a beach.

    I got lost frequently. The trail follows a dirt road at some point, and the signs where the trail picks up again are non-existent. I had to retrace my steps and walk around looking for anything resembling a trail several times.

    A 10 mile hike, however, I'm sure I walked at least 15 miles, because I kept losing the trail.

    I wouldn't recommend this hike.
