Loved. It !! Great view

Loved this trail, great views and a couple nice waterfalls at the end of the trail! Plan on going back more often.

We got lost multiple times on this trail because the markings are not easy to find. We never found the end of this trail but we still had fun getting lost in the beautiful State Park.

As an in-town, beautiful, easy access trail, it’s about as good as they come.

my favorite place in Texas <3 great views and easy trails. plenty of places to cool off too.

Excellent urban multiuse with tons of smiles given and taken

got an early summer start, started at 7:30 and I was the only one on the trail

Nice and wide. Does a loop so you return to your starting point.

Very well maintained and the trail markings are great. A lot of benches here and there. Quite a few steps and Rocky areas but the overlooks totally make up for it. I suggest making a visit to the waterfall. it's pretty cool but not much water.

I had good time running this trail, it's easy to get a little turned around but there's no way to get off the trail. it's a wildlife and nature preserve so it's quite clear where the dont want you to go. The creek is pretty and it really makes you feel like you're away from the city.

Hiked all the trails forwards and backwards. As always, this trail system delivers the "outdoors hiking" goods.

Parking on a Sunday was more of a challenge than the actual hike! It’s next to Barton Springs city pool. Place was jam packed at the pool and their were a lot of people on the trail. The trail leads to mountain climbing areas, small water holes, small observation cliffs. There was a really nice place where a couple found a random lone tree in a pebbled creek and we’re having a picnic. The biggest issues are the bikers on the trail. I passed about 11 of them and only one warned me that they were behind me. The rest were zipping by liked they owned the place. No heads up, no head count if they were in a pack, and going too fast on lose gravel.

what an awesome trail, so many changes in scenery, all beautifully groomed

I have done this couple of times now. But every time it was in summer. So it is best to start early to avoid doing it when the sun gets hot. A pretty long loop that takes you through different parts of the Austin downtown along the Colorado river. You will never be alone on this trail There were enough joggers and cyclists every time I did this trail.

Lovely hike, it was under construction in some areas due to severe weather damage - but don’t worry, it did not distract from the wildflowers, the beauty of old bridge arches, super cool wildlife and of course the amazing food & drink stops along the way!

Beautiful and unique. Have to do the loop around before the summit. Great hike. Come early because run out of parking on Sat.

A nice easy hike with some good views and lots of little trails off the main trail to do some exploring too. There was water along the trail but it didn’t taste good at all. Lots of people and trail that at times was not marked very well.

I enjoy running the loop trail. The trail itself is about 4.3 miles, but you'll have to walk another half mile or so through parking lots at the end of the trail. I park at the camp sites and start at the south entrance -- this makes for a tough first half mile but after that the remainder of the trail slopes gently downhill for the most part. The trail is a combination of large flat rocks and crushed granite. It is well maintained with very few loose rocks. Along Sandy Creek the trail gets overgrown with vegetation at times: too narrow with plants brushing up against my shins.

Great hike trail went on Mother’s Day

This information is wrong dogs are not allowed on this trail.

Love to hike on weekends and on climb some bluffs here. It has some pretty nice views and fun sights! Bring bug spray, camera, and sun screen. There are also lots of animals out there!

Nice easy loop trail addition to hiking the Summit trail. Nice views of the surrounding area. We started early when the park opened and hardly anyone was hiking at that time.

Love this trail. Lots of wildflowers and cactus blooms in the spring. Go on a weekday though, weekends are crowded.

Beautiful scenes along lake
Many joggers and cyclists
Worth the time and effort

We did this trail on the same weekend as their yearly trail races which made the trails definitely more trafficked than normal. Great train. Tough rolling hills that will keep you moving. Signage at trail splits weren't totally clear and we got off trail quite a ways without knowing it. There is VERY little shade so be prepared for direct sun for most of the hike. Beautiful trail overall that was a good challenge for myself and my dog. Be sure to bring plenty of water!

Nice park for the family and dogs!
