Wandering around Tuttle Creek State Park

Although there aren’t any particularly long hiking trails in the River Pond section of Tuttle Creek, I decided to string together a few different trails and paths to make a loop. Eleven hapless people from the Prairie Fire meetup followed me. First we took the Canyon Trail into the spillway and walked around the floor of a canyon that was rapidly formed from a release of rushing waters through the gates in 1993. Then we took the Eagle Pass trail to a camp ground, followed by the Western Heritage paved trail until we got to Dyer Road. From there we walked along the road until we were back at our vehicles.
The parking lot for the Canyon Trail is on the north side of Beach Road. The Eagle Pass trail is just across the street and over about 100 yards. Some of us followed up the hike with lunch at Hibachi Hut.
