Balcones Canyonlands NWR - Warbler Vista
Miles Hiked: 1.80 Miles Elapsed Time: N/A
Decided to make a day of the Balcones Canyonlands, and headed here after hiking the Doeskin Ranch area. You really don't notice 1431 too much until you get to the Vista Knoll trail, as the Cactus Rocks trail is under a canopy of trees pretty much the whole way. One important thing to note is that it looks like there may be a new trail here, which I haven't seen on any maps yet. If you go to the end of the Cactus Rocks trail and turn left onto the Vista Knoll trail, there'll be an option to turn right a little later onto what's called the Ridgeline Trail. It's marked as being three quarters of a mile. I was under time constraints at this point though (only noticed it on my way back to the trailhead), and will have to return to explore this another day.
