“Run up to the top of a hill with good central Texas views.”— Jeremy Ruckel
Once at the top, the trail levels out, and you can take the Shin Oak Trail around the backside of the hill or continue along the Rimrock Trail which follows the western/northern portion of the hill. The trail then goes back down the hill through switchbacks and becomes doubletrack and recrosses the creek.
There are a lot of pretty good views of the surrounding area, but you must find them between the trees that are abound at the top of the summit.
There is not a lot of shade along the trail, except when ascending or descending the hill, meaning it is probably not a great choice for Texas summers.
