Runner Notes

This trail might be a little too squirrelly for trail runners in some sections. And certainly the last bit of mini-switchbacks is a bit advanced.

Description

This is a gorgeous trail extending out to the Rough Hollow arm of Lake Travis with an offshoot to a spectacular cove.

The last 50 yards of the trail as mapped here are a steep set of mini-switchbacks leading down to the water. The city has put in guidelines to help those who need them getting down (and up!).

Early mornings or evenings are the best time to do this trail so that you don't have the full sun on you when you reach the water.

This is a great place to have lunch, take a dip in the lake, or just sit on the rocks at the top of the switchbacks and enjoy the view.

Flora & Fauna

There are lots of deer in this area, so don't be surprised if you cross paths with a few on the trail.

This trail takes you to the little beach finger you see sticking out into the water on the left side of the picture.

This is where you'll be standing if you follow the trail to its end point.

Great view of Rough Hollow arm of Lake Travis...great trail to get down to the water and have lunch and a dip in the lake!

This is a typical path section on this trail.... there is some dead fall and 'needs work' sections...but mostly very easy to follow.

Switchbacks await on the Peninsula Pass Trail.
