Hiked Map

It’s a tough one. We did it last Saturday and took us 3 hours to bottom and then back up. 5 miles of hiking. Great leg workout!

I live right next to the park so I go there almost everyday to walk my dogs or just to go to get my nature fix. I love this little piece of paradise. Great trails, beautiful creek. My dogs love it too. They can swim in the creek and run around in the woods. There’s abundant wildlife and spring flowers everywhere. Also a good birding area and It’s terrific for bluebonnet photos!

Good one but route post/pillars are not much helpful

The park was fun but I was expecting more from the reviews however I did not Adventure all of the trails unfortunately, and I didn't have my pup and being an off the leash park I probably would have enjoyed it more with her. the only thing is parts reaked of dog feces and there was feces bags everywhere. idk if that was the rules and park clean up picks them up but I hated that aspect. the water was not clear where I went like the images depected on some pages. However if you are local it's a fun hike.

Well-kept, varied terrain & elevation, scenic trail in the middle of a suburb. Would give it a 5 but very crowded at noon on a weekday—of course, that’s a sign of its popularity, so just the price to pay for a good hike.

Awesome trail for elevation change, also the views there are spectacular.

Enjoyed the hike. It was a bit busy when I went; however, the trail was very clean.

One of the hardest trails I've done in Austin. None of the stairs are brutal, but there are so many! Would definitely recommend you start at the end with the pond so you can have downhill on the way back.

fun trail, tons of stairs

We went hiking here 2 days in a row and absolutely loved it. My puppy had never done a hike off-leash and he LOVED it. I wish there were more around us!

Great Trail in the Greater Austin area. I parked at the bottom and did the out and back trail, a little over 6 miles according to the signage. Starts out easy, but definitely increases in difficulty closer to the upper trail head. 2,736 steps is no joke. For once the way back down felt a little easier than going up! Took me about 2:40 round trip. (That is with a rest at the top and a few photo ops along the way). Enjoy!

This was a scenic trail that ran along side a river for half the trail and then went up some texas hills. Starting from the bottom, the trail was pretty easy (although muddy from rain) until about halfway when the incline increased to fairly difficult (lots of steps) til the top. This trail took two hours up and back and with a snack break, being a fairly athletic person with a quick pace.

This trail is great for it's variety of surfaces in a small place. I like that there are small trail loops that can be combined into a great workout while still being near your car/water.

best trails to take your dog(s), if they have a good recall.

Parking is usually pretty full, but since it was like 99% humidity and 45 degrees, I actually got there and had my pick. Ran all the trails a few times, just had to be careful not to slip.

I think the thing I like the best about this place is the variety: Waterfall (though not always gushing) into a small lake, the rock formations, the sparse trees up top and more dense vegetation at the bottom, the overlooks are all rather cool, and plenty of creek crossings.

Cool park. Lots of trails to get lost in. The dog thing. Some owners don’t keep them on a leash. Got nipped, scratched and jumped on and the owner was oblivious. Really do like the place itself though. The creek and cliffs can be really pretty.

Cute place! I loved it. It’s about 3 miles to see all of the trails. No pets allowed so there’s no worry about stepping in poo. There is a pretty creek, waterfall, and scenic overlook.

One of my faves. Beautiful clear creek. Limestone cliffs on the side. I’ve returned to this trail multiple times. Lovely place to swim too.

Amazing! Coming back to do it again!

really fun trail and well maintained with lots of stairs. It was great for the dog too, but I was bothered by the number of dogs off leash - I counted 18. Minus one star for crowd and off leash dogs, but I still recommend!

Super cool. Myself, 3 year old and 5 month strapped to me. We only did about half the trail and I loved it.
A few options.
Starts at the top of a decent size hill and you work you're way downto valley. Did not see beckoning water fall this time.

Beautiful and a lot of low water crossings with perfectly placed rocks. Perfect for the dog or family.... pretty

Nice trail. Only downside is all the dog poop everywhere. We found ourselves looking down most of the time to avoid stepping in what we could smell all around us.

If the dog owners would be responsible, the trail would be awesome.

First time on this lovely trail today. Harder than most trails I have been on in the greater Austin area due to the elevation gain and frequent log stairs that require longer strides. I noticed some hikers on the trail using trekking poles which could be helpful especially for the 40 yr. old plus hikers like me. Overall a well maintained trail and perfect for fitness training. It is possible to make it a Loop by doing a short road walk at the end heading back toward to the nature trail entrance which reconnects to the main trail.

Lovely and well-kept trails. Went around noon on a Thursday and crossed paths with 5-7 other hikers as well as a couple of bike riders. Creek is low enough to cross via large stones and rocks in the water. Parking was almost full when I arrived, so I imagine on the weekends it can be quite tricky to park. I will definitely be hiking these trails again in the future!

Trail runs along creek bed in heavy tree cover. No views to speak of but a nice place to get out for a short hike.

Clean, beautiful, shaded canopy. Lots of people and dogs. Felt safe. The water there is very clear. Had a great hike. Path is a bit narrow when passing or head on walking.
