The first trail along the creek deadends but if the water is not too high you don't have to back track too far to cross the creek to get to the other trails.  If you do the main loop around the outside of the park you will have a much easier time tring to follow the trails if you just remember to stay left, don't go too far on the western end of the trails (look for the right turn after the last side trail on the map, but it looks like you can go straight), go left at the gofl coarse and around the gate, when you get to the road  the  path is  across the road to the left just look for the place were water has started to erode the hillside that is the path. There will be a few steps at the top.  The scenic spot isn't worth it and the path back is all paved.

This book will be in great demand by travelers, park visitors, and aficionados of Texas landscapes. -- James Wright Steely, Director of National Register Programs, Texas Historical Commission Whether you enjoy looking at scenic landscapes, touring historical sites, camping, fishing, hiking, backpacking, swimming, boating, horseback riding, rock climbing, or almost any other outdoor recreation, there's a state park in Texas where you can pursue your pleasure. From the Panhandle to the Rio Grande Valley, the Pineywoods to the Big Bend, some 125 state parks offer you a natural escape from fast-lane living. This book is the only official and complete guide to the state parks of Texas. Loaded with accurate, up-to-date information from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, it describes the attractions of each park and gives details-- including a locator map-- about camping and lodging facilities, types of recreation offered, and addresses and phone numbers for more information. To assist you in planning trips, the parks are grouped into seven geographic regions-- Big Bend Country, Gulf Coast, Hill Country, Panhandle Plains, Pineywoods, Prairies and Lakes, and the South Texas Plains. With gorgeous color photographs and an inviting text, Laurence Parent depicts the natural features and attractions of each region. So if you want to watch the sunset over Enchanted Rock, fish in the surf on the beach at Galveston, or listen for a ghostly bugle among the ruins of Fort Lancaster, let this book be your complete guide. Don't take a trip in Texas without it.
