Summary: This hike and bike trail is mostly a wide gravel path, although there are some smaller, unofficial trails that are narrower and not as well maintained. There isn't much interesting scenery, but there are exercise stations along the trail as well as an area with a playground. The exercise stations are used as clues to finding a nearby geocache.
Trailhead: Take Mopac (Loop 1) South to the Davis Road exit. Head west on Davis and turn right onto Beckett Road. You can park in the lot for Dick Nichols Park which will be on your right. From there, cross the street and the trailhead will be within sight (a short walk further down Beckett). There are also other trailheads as marked on the map with TH2-4. (Lat:30.21567 Lon:-97.86315)

I love these trails. Partly because I live nearby, but also because they are a nice walk in the woods. You can get lost easily, but it is not big enough to be a real problem.
