Enjoy patches of shade on this trail, walk to a little waterfall, and if you're lucky you'll spot an armadillo. 

Park at the Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve (see map) to access the trail. Good for families or to visit alone.

Texas / Mud Creek Loop Trailhead

I love McAllister Park. Sure it can get a little stinky after the torrential Texas rains sweep through, but on a clear, dry day you can always find a new and LOVELY trail.
