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.

The homestead Trail was nearly impossible to find. I went out there once before and couldn't find it at all. I went out there second time with my cell phone that had a GPS map on it, and I almost missed it again. My friend and I walked down it a little bit and it's really overgrown. We turned around after about a half-mile because there was a huge spider webs crossing the trail with a huge spider on it. We figured is that was at the beginning of the trail, where most people probably walked, it was just going to get really primitive later on. The Onion Creek Trail, which we did only that loop instead of doing both loops, was nice but a little boring.

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

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!

I’ve only run here once during the Rockledge Rumble trail race, but it was my favorite trail run so far. Excellent trail. Loved the mix of terrain and thought it was fairly technical for the area. Definitely recommend it.

My best friend and I came here during the week in the heat of the July summer. We were disappointed we were not able to swim, but the beauty of this place is worth exploring. The drive in from either Austin or Marble falls is peaceful with lots of scenery. The park attendants are friendly and informative.

If you have any health risks, I wouldn’t recommend this hike for you. Also, bring extra water in the hotter months.

I love this trail Sept -May! Once I even happened upon a geo cash by accident. It’s very pretty and it feels very safe I like biking or walking it.

Convenient hike that is enjoyable year round. Even in August this hike was pleasant due to the shady path, but it is definitely best after a rain or when there's been a rainy season. Full of people and off-leash dogs and, unfortunately, entirely too many bags of dog poop left on the trail by irresponsible owners who can't be bothered carrying out their dog's poop.

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

A great little set of trails packed into a beautiful little park. Some of the best east Texas has to offer.

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

Fantastic trail once you're beyond the Old Alton bridge. Quiet (except for distant traffic noise), fluctuating scenery and terrain, and clean. Terrain gets really hilly and a bit treacherous east of the Village Pkwy bridge, then the trail fades as you go further east. A local resident told me the trail riders stopped maintaining it east of that bridge after the 2015 flood.

A great, challenging hike. There’s a solid half mile of uneven terrain with a 25% grade. Leave the pups at home and bring your trekking poles! The large steps can be really hard on the knees.

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!

Great place to take dog, plenty of creek crossings and shaded areas to enjoy area. Downside is that the secret is out and can get pretty crowded.

it's got some distance to it don't forget to take a bottle of water or two, easy to moderate with some elevation included

Go for the pool, but don’t skip the hike!

Beautiful find in the middle of suburbia. Not a fan of suburbia, so this is a gem to me.

easy and relaxing ,wooded and mostly shaded

Excellent trail for elevation training.

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

Great hike. Short but just enough for an easy Sunday morning hike. Beautiful place!!! The only real challenge is the BIG hill. Get here early, they reach capacity quick and will not let anyone else in. $$entry fee!
