This trail section passes through typical hill country scenery along the flat bottomlands near the Llano River. The trail begins from the parking area and heads straight east for a quarter mile. The trail dips south to meet the Buck Lake Trail
near the lake. The trail then turns north to join the main section of the River Trail
at a nice overlook of the river. This trail is mostly good for connecting different trails together into loops. An advantage is that there is some shade along most of the trail.
