“A wide, easily navigable trail that provides you with great views of the Trinity River.”— John Shuttlesworth
Since it used to be a forest road, it is fairly exposed so bring a hat and some sunscreen. At the end of the trail, the road connects with a singletrack trail that passes shortly under a large powerline and then leads you to a great view of the Trinity River just before you reach the turn for the Hog's Wild Trail. This is a nice trail that is easily followed and is a necessity for connecting with other areas of the preserve.
