I have hiked and backpacked this trail. it is awsome. It is a pretty rough hike. Lots of uphill hiking. Not recommended in the Summer time. To hot. Lots of wildlife and scenery.

This is an easy hike along the Paluxy river. The terrain varies, but is not strenuous. This is a good hike for the beginning hiker or for families who want a brief adventure when visiting this state park. During the summer months, enjoy a dip in the Paluxy river to cool off after hiking this trail. There are patches of cactus near the trail that can be painful if young hikers get too near. Remain on the trail as much as possible.
