“An updated version of the Texas Sunset loop, featuring lots of change in elevation.”— Sloppy Joe
More downhill into the "valley" area of Texas Sunset, where in the spring the wildflowers are beautiful. Climb up the jeep road and hang the first right into the new rerouted Texas Sunset loop, which ultimately leads you back to the jeep gravel road after some challenging ups and downs through the trees.
Make a right onto the gravel jeep road and the next immediate left to more challenging climbs and drops. That trail dumps back onto the jeep road, on which you hang a left for some final climbing back to the top of the hill, . Finally, make a right onto the last portion of Texas Sunset through the woods and across a wooden bridge to the trailhead and Ranger loop.
Part of the Big Cedar Wilderness Trails.
