If you want exercise, you read have to do the Hill Trail. Several loops that will give a great workout either hiking, running or biking
Nice little quick loop. Can't wait to come back in the spring. Trails are decently marked and generally loop in on themselves.
The trail posts were confusing however the scenic by the river made up for it.
Nice look out points from the right side of the mountains.
there is an area where groups 3 people Max are allowed.
Nice hike. There was an event going on when we went, so it was quite busy. There is a nature preserve at the back of the trail that provides solitude.
Nice trail. Yes you do have to pay attention to the trail marks. Alltrails helped us.
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.
Trails are marked. They are color coded and a map is located at the entrance. Easy to walk. Some people did not have their dogs on leashes near the water so that was a bit scary running into a large dog all alone on the trail.
Cool. Not a long hike which is good when bringing kids.
