Location: Comanche Bluff Trail

Rating: 4stars
Difficulty: 3stars  Solitude: 4stars
Miles Hiked: 9.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: 4 hours, 30 minutes


I wasn't sure if I hiked the entire trail but it was a great hike either way.  I did get to the area with the birdhouses, and walked at least  a mile and a half past that on the jeep trail until the high reeds were surrounding me.  I saw a deer on the way out and 5 armadillos and 2 hikers on the way back.  The solitude was wonderful.  I didn't have to pay a fee to get in Taylor Park, but that might only have been because the gate was up and no attendant was on duty today.
