I hope you could find your way around the trail.

I deserved that.

Yes, those trails are remarkably well-marked and accurately-mapped.  It is a fairly straightforward system, and probably hasn't changed in 10+ years either, which I'm sure helps.  Thanks to whomever did all of that.  Was it done recently?

There is gravel on almost every turn and climb at Muleshoe Bend.  And IMO it looks like it was put there, not like it occurred naturally.  Lots of fist-sized and golf-ball-sized rounded rocks, light-tan-ish color.  Would look right at home on a gravel road.

Last time I was there (a few years ago) the gravel seemed to be more to the trail on your left side going down the main jeep road to the lake. The trail to the right side, the section that you begin on, seemed more like your typical rooty/rocky singletrack. I remember thinking it was a little strange, and that it seemed like someone had put it there.

Gravel/sand deposits are from ancestral meanderings of the Colorado River.

Do you still want more brought in from Peddlers Pass?

June Bug, are you sure you didn't mean Leanderings; this is central Texas, after all.

 Leanderings are the routes taken by Leanderthals.

I knew you'd have a good explanation, being married to an Austinopithecus.
