Park now open again and a great fall hike
Dana Peak Park [Hiking] - 10/7/2010  [View Log Page]
Rating: Difficulty: Solitude:
Distance: 2.00 Miles Duration: 2 hours

This park opened again this past summer. There's free parking near the firebreak trail. If you go a little further down the road there's a place for boaters to pay, but  you can just ask for a trail map and turn around and park where it's free.

I went this morning as there is little to no shade. Saw a bunch of deer and a monarch butterfly. There's also a little creek sort of place that crosses Fire lane with just a board to get across the mud, but it's not bad. As a bonus as of right now the very shallow pool is teeming with tadpoles.

I was alone pretty much the entire time I was out. I was passed by one biker and as I was heading to my car a lady was just coming in with her dog.

Edited to say free maps are availble on http://www.centraltexastrails.org/index.html
