Comments: A hidden gem, though I am sure it helped that it finally has started raining. The hike along the power lines was not an accurate predictor of what was in store ahead. Beautiful trails. If you turn left at the trailhead, you go on a fairly flat, beautiful hike crossing the stream several times and walking around a beautiful pond. Go to the right, and you have a choice of hiking the rim trail with good views, or take the descent trail into the canyon. While the trails are somewhat short, eye candy abounded. Another pond, a stream, very wooded. Really a treat and I will be visiting again.

A more narrowly focused but still abundantly informative treatment of the Texas Hill Country, this new edition features five tours of the Hill Country that capture the essence of its flavor and charm. Take a ride on the Fredericksburg & Northern Railroad, follow the historic Mormon trails from Travis Peak Community to Medina Lake, visit Enchanted Rock, and much more. This book gives you historic tidbits, folklore, and geography; detailed listings of lodgings, restaurants, and entertainment; major attractions, including state parks, museums, and historic places; directions, days and hours of operation, addresses, and phone numbers; and maps and calendar of events. This updated sixth edition contains even more destinations than ever before!

The author apologizes for the lack of table of contents and index that seem to be absent in the Kindle edition. He is working with the publisher to remedy the problem. They are present in the paperback version.
