Eureka
The crown jewel at the end of these trails is the view of the sunset behind layers of TX hills. This observation tower has been built so visitors can appreciate the full effect. (Photo by junkcollector)
Troy's Monument
The footbridge, like much of this park, is associated with a boy scout, Troy Swetnam. (Photo by junkcollector)
Bridge
This is the wooden bridge along Red Oak trail. In the recent drought there is no water flowing under it, but it is an interesting structure along this wooded trail. (Photo by junkcollector)
