Beautuful and scenic. The only issues is dogs of leashes and bikes do not mix. I've had several close calls with cyclist and my dogs.

A fun easy trail, in a very popular park. Pretty views of the creek abound, and great tree coverage ensures a cool walk.

The trail is as described. Do not confuse this trail with the Northern Walnut Creek Trail, which was opened to the public in Feb 2016. That trail is paved and extends from Mopac (as if this writing) to the parking lot at Walnut Creek Park.

It was a really nice easy trail with really pretty views all around. I liked that it felt so secluded once you where on the trails. It's also nice that you can bring your dogs and they have disposable doggy bags as well.

Lots of dog poop along the trails...bagged and unbagged. Would be nice if the trail maps had the "you are here" designation on them...easy to get lost unless you have GPS. Bike riders don't warn you that they're coming. On the other hand...we did see a deer.

The trails here are invigorating and enlivening to ride. Many interlinking off road paths & a paved one for more modest riding. So glad this place is nearby!

I really enjoyed this place, felt like a labrinth at times, but that made it all the more fun. Probably would've had more fun if my 5 year old didn't tire out so quick. One annoying thing that seems to be common on all the trails is people bag up there dogs poop then just leave it in the bag on the trail, I don't even understand the point of them bagging it if they aren't going to carry it out, but i guess I just need to accept that some people are morons

Awesome little park hidden in North Austin. I lived in the neighborhood that buts against this park for a few years. Lots of trails, a cool little stream crosses through one side. Mountain bikers can swarm the place at times, most are very responsible. Baseball fields can cause crowding when it's game time. Hidden BMX trails on the north side of the park. An overall really cool little park. Not much if a hike, though. More like a family outdoor park.
