Worth A Second Trip
Government Canyon State Natural Area - 7/12/2008  [View Log Page]
Rating: 3stars Difficulty: 2stars Solitude: 3stars
Distance: 6.00 Miles Duration: 4 hours

There were a lot of mountain bikers, but just as many hikers.  The trails are very clearly marked.  I did the Joe Johnston trail, to Little Windmill, to Sendero Balcones, back to the recharge trail, and home.  An early start is best, as it was really hot by Noon.  I was on a limited time frame, but I look forward to getting back when I have more time.

Padre Island

Rating: 1star Difficulty: 1star Solitude: 4stars
Distance: 1.00 Mile Duration: 1 minute

The last few times I've been to the Island, the seashore has been really busy.  Great place to go if you want to sit by the beach or fish, but not much for hiking.

Great Picnic Place

If you like to fish or camp by the water, this is the place.  Visit the big tree, too.

This Was A Great Hike
Big Bend - Lost Mine Trail - 8/18/2006  [View Log Page]
Rating: 4stars Difficulty: 3stars Solitude: 4stars
Distance: 4.50 Miles Duration: 5 hours

Did this hike with a buddy of mine a few years ago.  We felt weird upon reaching the top...we had our gear in backpacks and ran into a family that had 1 little bottle of water.  This is a great day hike in Big Bend.
