Lake Georgetown – Goodwater Trail – Cedar Breaks Trail Head, Georgetown, TX

cool, 50s-60s

Ian, Biff, Finn

7.92 miles

 

This is one of my favorite hikes in Central Texas.  We woke up early to hit the trail, as a cold front had come through overnight and the weather would be great for a hike.

The parking lot was actually pretty full, compared to other times I’ve been here, but the trail didn’t seem that crowded.  I will say this trail is extremely rocky, which means the majority of the time you are looking at your feet instead of at the scenery, which is not ideal.

We went past the longhorns on the way in, but they were pretty far from the fence.  This would change on the way back.

We went about 4 miles in and Biff looked up and gave me the impression that it was time to head back, so we stopped for a snack and water break and turned around.  On the way back past the longhorns, there was an issue.

I didn’t turn my phone for the videos.  Deal with it.

We continued back to the car and the total hike was almost 8 miles.  The pups were tired, but I think they enjoyed it.  Always nice to get out here to Lake Georgetown.  Methinks an overnight might be in order here this winter.
