Comments: Inks Lake State Park has some great Central Texas hiking. The hike is mostly along pink granite, similar to Enchanted Rock's Loop trail, and unlike almost any other trail in Central Texas (most are rocky with limestone). In addition, the trail follows the contours of the lake for stretches, ensuring a beautiful view. I took the outside edge of all of the trails in the park, including a diversion through the hike-in camping area. Didn't see any tents back in the primitive camping area, but it would be a nice place to camp.
