Temps started at 79 and ended at 96, sunny, light and steady wind.
All trails were dry, easy to traverse and had been groomed fairly recently. The only animals seen today were the longhorns; there were some birds out but they were not abundant. The one creature we saw the most of, were spiders - specifically, Garden Spiders! It seemed every minute or two, we saw another spider either in it's web or on a plant close to the trail. Grasshoppers were also evident; these were "normal" grasshoppers, the larger ones we saw only a time or two.
We had the trails to ourselves with the exception of seeing a few mountain bikers and a pair of equestrians.
Water and info kiosk available at Bell's Trailhead; water is located at various campsites near the trailhead.
Water, shade and info kiosk available at Dinosaur Tracks Viewing Area.
Water, shade, info kiosks and dry toilets available at the River Bend Ghost Camp area. IMPORTANT - although water is available, when I tried it, the water had a noticeable "swampy" smell and taste.
