Nice little trail system in an area outside of Austin without much of a choice.  Coppertone and I hiked every trail segment, though GPS problems resulted in us losing all of the Orange Route trail segment somehow.

With the recent rains there were a couple of segments, particularly in the northern Orange and Red Trails that werevery wet from flowing water.  In one case the water flowing down a trail leading to a creek made it look like a creek tributary rather than a trail!

We also suspect that some frogs along the creek greatly appreciated the recent rains.  They making quite a noise in spots.
