Description

The trailhead is marked in the parking lot. Be sure to stop by the Refuge Headquarters to get an information book and visit the museum. This trail is excellent for kids and families. Careful once at the top of the dam, there are amazing views, but some very steep precipices.

To return either go back the way you came, or follow the lake around on the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge - Burford Lake featured hike. This area can get very busy during the weekends and school holidays. The refuge is a great place to explore, enjoy!
