Comments: There's a moderately long out and back trail that parallels Slaughter lane from one end of the park all the way to Mopac. It starts between the park entrance on Slaughter Lane and the creek (opposite side of the creek from the parking area and soccer fields). Trail is crushed granite. It crosses Escarpment just inside the Circle C subdivision entrance. You have to climb the embankment and watch for traffic. A lot of people park their cars on the road and walk from there.

I did this hike around dusk on a weeknight. The trail wasn't crowded, but I regularly saw other people - joggers or people walking their dogs.

This trail has always had a surprising amount of wildlife. This time I saw several cottontails, mountain lion scat and a great horned owl.
