Wild Basin Trail is a 2 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Austin, Texas and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and nature trips and is best used from November until February.
This was a great, tree covered, quiet trail. Easy accessibility from Loop 360 causes a few places on the trail to have road noise, but those moments pass quickly. The closeness of the trail to the city and manageable length for families is invaluable. The views, trickling stream and small waterfall make it a very enjoyable experience.
It is always pretty quiet on these trails and there are a lot of trail choices from easy to moderate. The waterfall is beautiful. This trail has really helped me get back into shape, a fair hike up Youpon gets my heart rate up. It has served as a go-to trail for me, even if I want to hike farther than 2 miles it has been a trail I've been able to loop without getting bored of the scenery.
it was awesome. great trail not too crowded.
Wild Basin is a good fitness trail since it is basically a descent and then s moderately to difficult climb back up to the trail head. The scenery is okay, but there many better options in West Austin. Road noise from 360 is a major drawback.
