Miles Hiked: 2.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: 1 hour


Started at Lakeside village and found a trail to top of Powelldale Mountain and another along Brazos River/ Lake Whitney.  There has been no improvements to this area, trailhead not easy to find and trail overgrown with weeds.  This was not a good place to hike as dead dear carcass and someones excrement littered entrance to trailhead.  However the views on top the "mountian" was very good.  Will get pics up soon.
