went with the dogs, it's a bit of an ankle breaker at times, especially with a puller and there's a few places where you need to almost climb up rocks. we went after it rained so part of the trail was flooded and or slippery. but the views are great ands it's a solid hike. decent distance, although the section that's on the road is weird, watch out for cars.
There are a lot more trails here that aren't mapped. The best ones are a bit secret. Cross over the creek at the waterfall and head to the left and up. Then Traverse across the bluff (great view!) and there's a network of trails to explore.
A little less maintained than the Barton Creek greenbelt, but it's also less trafficked which is great. Plenty of quiet once you get away from the watering holes. The waterfalls here are an overlooked natural wonder in Austin. They are spectacular after getting some rain.
Beautiful place, lots of water holes and cool scenery. The trail was not marked well though and just started exploring not knowing if I was or wasn't on the trail. I loved it though, will go back again. Great spots for swimming and even saw people doing some rock climbing. Pretty cool place with lots to do.
It was Hot today with a high of 102 degrees. My buddy and I decided to make it a short hike at the end of the day. We are timed our hike to finish at sunset,
The North Bull Creek Park Trail begins a Spicewood Springs Road and heads South/West toward Lakewood Dr. along HWY 360. Lots of water and it's an easy trail.
Also, if you bring water shoes, there are plenty of places to enjoy a nice cool walk in the creek, or, even swimming.
Austin should treasure this location and treat it with a little more respect dog baggies everwhere and trash piling up ... just needs some cleanup and its perfect we loved the trail...the falls, rock formations just so much beauty. Hope to make a trip back maybe it will be cleaner next time

Pretty cool spot with some cool rock formations to climb on to get better views and pictures. Nice spots to walk along the river. Not crowded at all. Although I went on a Tuesday and it was 100 degrees. But a fun little hike none the less.
Today was very muggy after last nights rains. Lots of mosquito's along creek. It was actually an infestation. Other than that, the hike was fine. We ended up cutting it short due to the mosquito' seven though we were "protected". Went to Whole Foods for a smoothie to cool down and inspect the damage! Good hike though for humans and canines.
