Location: Comanche Bluff Trail

Rating: 3stars
Difficulty: 3stars  Solitude: 4stars
Miles Hiked: 7.50 Miles  Elapsed Time: 4 hours, 15 minutes


This is a nice half-day hike with medium difficulty.  The trail is not well marked, especially during the last mile near the primitive camping area.  Stay on the beaten path and you should eventually get to the campsite.  I was amazed at the amount of drift wood and plastic trash that has accumulated around the trail area during periods of high lake levels.  Be on the lookout for deer and hogs as you approach the last 1/3 of the hike!
