Love this hike. More awesome when you cross over to the cliff side. Can get crowded with swimmers, but if you hike the cliff area, you will find solitude. You have to cross the water or go back the way you came to get off of the cliff area though. Crossing the water is really fun and my choice every time.
The views along the creek bed are nice but the trails need to be better marked and maintained. The map states that it is a .8 mile loop but there are many variations of the trail which are color-coded blue, red, etc. so the map on this app is not accurate at all. Not very crowded when we went but some people don't pay attention to the signs would say keep your dogs on a leash.
This place was horribly maintained and everything is overgrown. Not to mention that almost no one observes the "leash your dog" signs. Parking is very limited, so unless you go early, don't bother. The only redeeming quality here is that the trails are well marked. If you want a hike that's worth your time in Austin, check out the River Place Nature Trail.

Great quiet trail. Definitely will bring my bathing suit next time.
