Trail shared by Eric Ashley

A flat, easy trail accessing numerous picnic areas within McKinney Falls State Park.

Features -none-

Family Friendly Kids can easily make their way down the Picnic Trail.

Description

What the Picnic Trail lacks in the way of solitude, it certainly makes up for with its access to the numerous and beautiful picnic areas within McKinney Falls State Park. It's best used as a connector from the picnic areas to the Homestead Trail and Lower McKinney Falls.

The Onion Creek rock shelter just to the lower creek side of the 'rock shelter trail'. A nice photo op on this easy trail.
