The Good Water Loop is perfect for a long trail run, backpacking, hiking, and camping.

The Good Water Loop is a loop trail around the San Gabriel River through Russel Park and Sawyer Park. Just outside of Georgetown, Texas, this trail is perfect for a lengthy trail run or for an overnight backpacking trip. This trail is open year-round, and dogs are allowed to use this trail if kept on leash. The trail offers scenic views of the 'lake,' along with gorgeous wild flowers in the spring. 

A recommended route is to start at Cedar Breaks and to hike about 15 miles to Walnut Creek primitive camp site. This camp site offers plenty of good spots to pitch a tent and a small beach for lake access.

Good Water Loop Reviews

Absolutely love this part of Good Water trail. We did about 4 miles to Sawyer camp out and back. We met some people there that brought materials to improve the campsite. New poles, fire pits, and metal picnic tables...three of each. We plan to do the whole trail on a weekend through hike for our 50 mile challenge and this will be our first campsite to stop at.
