Really pleasant & well maintained. Dogs appreciated the creek in the lower half. No need for some people to mark the trail with bags of dog poop.

It's nice and well maintained but in the summer water is dried out.

Flat, easy trail that’s well trafficked. Great for a stroll with your pups. The best part are the falls at the very end of the trail. (Don’t settle for the “falls” at the halfway-ish point). The falls at the end create an oasis where you can swim in CLEAR WATER (not greenish-brown) and even lounge around them to catch a tan. The area is usually pretty busy in the summer and you can catch some friendly puppers and their humans taking a dip before beginning their trek back.

Water was dried up for the most part, some at the end of the trail! Really cool ending and it was pretty flat all the way!

Lots and lots of stairs. This could be a training hike for something more difficult in the future. I’d definitely come back.

Excellent trail with some beautiful views. This is a challenging trail with a lot of stairs up and down all throughout the trail. Lots of snakes and lizards crawl around as well so keep your eyes peeled.

great hiking with lots of shady trails.

Best hike in Austin if you're looking for a workout! Elevation change gets me breathing heavy;there are tons of stairs. Beautiful scenery too!

Nice trail, not overly crowed. Stream was drie so no waterfall.

None of the parts of this trail are particularly hard, but you'll feel a bit tired after this trail, as the trail is consistently moderately strenuous.The trail is well marked, and there is very little traffic out here -- you might not see anybody else on the trail.

Tough trail in the Summer heat with LOTS of steps! Beautiful scenery but the creek was dried up.

The hike was to easy for me, but still enjoyed swimming in the Creek and taking in the scenery. Wont be back for hiking though.

Beautiful hike but Creek was dried up

I wouldn’t follow this, stick to the trails. I was bushwhacking half way through and county continue because of the overgrowth.

Was fun. The terrain was easy with minor rocky climbs

It was a fun time. Will be back to walk them all

Pretty hike but the waterfalls have dried up. Not sure if they’ll be back for the season but the creek bed was completely dry.

Very busy on the weekends. Don’t go if you’re looking to escape to nature. But do go if you want to get some leg work in.

Bring plenty of water in the summer!

Excellent trail for elevation training.

Great if you require stairs, otherwise switchbacks could have done without them.

This was a tougher trail, there are a lot of steps throughout but it was a great workout and the scenery was gorgeous. i would suggest going earlier in the morning before it gets too hot, as there are some spots exposed to the sun which can be brutal.

Lovely location specially for walking dogs and family relaxing. Beautiful

Lots of steps. I agree with the hard rating, especially on a humid summer day.

Awesome. Use this weekly.

Omg if you are looking to train for strength and elevation, this one is amazing. One-hour to the top and one-hour to the bottom. We set the pace on the way back.

We recently hiked at the Grand Canyon and are thinking of doing the Rim to Rim hike. We’ve been trying to find a place to train that isn’t flat. This hike fits the bill. It’s closer to 3 miles from trail head to end of trail, with lots of signs along the way to tell you your location. About 6 miles round trip. There are benches along the way as well. Follow the boardwalk signs to panther trail signs to the canyon trail signs. There are no water locations, so bring plenty. Even with shade this trail is hot. Great cardio workout, even walking.

If you have any sort of knee or back problems this trail is rough. It’s also busy. We went on a Saturday morning around 8 and there were already quite a few people there. Lots of trail runners as well, with narrow trail sections that make it difficult for passing. If you’re a trail runner, more power to you because there’s enough stairs to kill your legs.
