Miles Hiked: 3.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes


We're estimating we only went three miles because of frequent stops to look at wildflowers or other interesting things. It was a cloudy day but brilliant with all the bluebonnets. We were fascinated by the wide variety of trees, flowers and plants as new transplants to TX.

We did an easy hike starting to the right of the parking lot-(Lake Overlook Rd entrance),  then turned around knowing from what we read the trail goes on forever. Would've loved to gone further but did not have proper supplies: bug spray, extra snacks & h20. Only passed a few other people which was great. Would like to try another park entrance and do some trails on a more scenic part of the lake.
