Coppertone and I made a brief visit back to Austin to check on my Dad and decided to log a quick stroll at a park we'd not previously hiked.  Actually, Coppertone had been here before for some geocaching, but not to log a hike.

We parked at a nearby office that didn't look like they had 24 hour security like Apple and did what amounts to the outer loop of the park.  It was starting to get a bit warm and didn't want to get too sweaty given our other stops today, so this small loop was all we managed to get in.

Thankfully, the maintainers of the park mowed down a good width of grass over most of the trail, which saved us from too much of a chigger risk.  Coppertone is pretty sure she still got one of them here though.  Reminders of our previous home!

Nice path for it's location

We found this in our new neighborhood.  If you drive east on Duval from 183 for a block and turn left on Cow Path until it ends, you can enter the park.  We followed along the right side all the way around and it's only about a mile, so we reversed and took some of the inner trails and stretched it out to 2.5.  While it's not long, for the area it is in it's a beautiful wooded park with a lot of nice trails.  If you go out the west side at Riata there is a lake, too.  While normally a park this small wouldn't be noteworthy it has a lot here for the space.
