Comments: Always has been one of my favorites. I kind of did a criss cross this time around. I veered right from the parking lot and off down toward the creek, crossed and went all the way to the top (very steep here). Came back down the top but noticed a new trail (new to me anyway) that is between the top trail and the rim. So I took that back inward from where I came until I hit the rim trail. Followed that out and down (basically to the road) and followed the creek all the way till it hit the road again and turned back for the parking lot. The 3 miles is a guess so don't count on it for accuracy. The weather was nice (sunny, 60s), even though it had snowed the day before...Texas weather :) Anyway, a definite nice spot here so close in.
