The Barred Owl Trail begins by leaving the road and quickly entering the trees. In a short length, it pops into an opening before diving back into the woods on its way to the Brazos. Eventually, the trail parallels the Brazos to offer pleasant water views before reaching a junction with the Fishbone Trail and Sycamore Trail. Continue through the intersection on the Fishbone Trail to reach its true end at a junction with the Ironwood Trail.
