This was the first trip back to one of our favorite state parks since the terrible wildfires in 2011. Yes, there are still lots of charred, dead pines trees, etc, but there are numerous meadows now ripe with rebirth, covered in ferns, bushes, baby pines, and wildflowers, some of which were still blooming even in late June. Additionally, there are also lots of pines trees that survived the fire. There are a number of fun hiking trails, none are strenuous, most less than 2 miles, with some slight elevation changes. It was not crowded, hardly anyone there during the weekday we went. Clean bathrooms by picnic area, lots of tables in the shade. This area is a small ecological bubble with pines which are not normally found in central Texas.
