Beautiful short hike

Limestone outcropping
Located less than a half-mile in from Jim Hogg Park, this is one of the neat features of this section.

Comments: This section of trail I hiked is the newest extension of the Goodwater Trail. It starts in Russell Park & ends at Jim Hogg Park. It includes lake views, a rolling crown switchback, an armored creek crossing, an old rock wall, and the typical limestone, cedar, and cacti. This section was built & is well maintained by the Austin RIdge Riders Mountain Bike Club. The next extension between Jim Hogg and Overlook Park starts in October and will complete the loop around the lake. For more info, contact me at dburatti@grandecom.net. Dewayne
