Love this one! It was a super easy trail, and there’s a creek flowing beside you with lots of dogs to run into along the way!!

Great hike for you and your four legged friend. A lot of dogs around off leash - so just make sure that your recall game is strong.

Nice trail. Enjoyed the waterfall.

this is definitely not what I would consider a good running trail. very Rocky with numerous Creek crossings that slow your stride. Also this is rampant with dogs and very crowded- dogs were well behaved but it made it harder to run. I also found the trail not well marked past the creek- once you are away from the creek however it was very pretty and peaceful. most people stay by the creek so the crowed thinned. nice trail for a walk

Google sadly gave directions through a private, gated, locked driveway. The hike is short, maybe 1/2 a mile. Waterfall is about 4', would be fun in summer, assuming there's still water following.

Nice hike with elevation change. Very crowded on Sunday afternoon. Lots of dogs on leashes, but a fe owners weren’t picking up after their pets. Narrow trails.

Beautiful weather and perfect creek flow led to a great hiking experience at the Turkey Creek Trail. Lots of creek crossings and off-leash dogs but was part of the fun. Once you get to the beginning of the loop, be mindful to stay left despite what looks like the trail leading up a hill.

While in Austin (I live in San Antonio), I make it a point to get to this upper-moderate level trail, especially when it has recently rained so the creeks are flowing nicely. Just hiked it for the fifth time on 11/11. Beautiful trail, great workout, lots of stairs. A solid liter of water will do you just fine unless it’s summer. It’s short but you can squeeze 3-4 miles out of the whole trail system. A true gem just 25 minutes from downtown ATX.

Great track, pretty quiet and lots of fun little spots to explore.

Great trail to power through. Stair climbs really got the heart rate pumping.

This was a really fun trail! Great for taking your dog hiking. Follows along a really cute creek that you crossover several times. a little muddy this time of year, but still a good time.

My absolute favorite hike to take my dogs on. Even when it's busy you don't interact with that many people beyond passing them. I always wear water friendly shoes because you will more than likely get your feet wet crossing the creek.

Great hike, nice elevation changes, beautiful scenery and well marked (which is a luxury in Austin). Highly recommend for a moderate and fun trail.

Water is still pretty high so plan on getting your feet wet as you go over the many creek crossings! Fun walk!

Kristen and I came here on a Sunday morning after much rain. Creek was way up and beautiful and powerful. Great limestone flat areas and mini canyons with 8 ft deep water. Lots of dogs enjoying it.
Trail on both sides of creek was wet and narrow and confusing with so many offshoots.
The actual biull creek trail head is at beginning of parking lot. Thisntrail goes up a hill and gets away from flooding and confusion of creek side trails.
Lots of pretty yellow flowers.

Perfect for hiking with my one year old on my back. Great scenery, clean trails easy with a small challenge:) we enjoyed a small snack after the hike by the offices.

Nice peaceful trail with scenic view, waterfall and creek. No pets allowed.

This is one of my favorite trails in Austin. It's mostly shady and criss-crosses a creek multiple times. I usually only see a few people on the trail.

This is NOT a mountain biking trail. It is for hiking and dogs. The mountain biking tag shouldn't be on this.

Beautiful hike and creek. Easy for all ages. Also, dog friendly.

Beautiful trail with plenty of wandering chances

If you're looking for a long, challenging and lost in the woods trail, look no further. I went in there thinking it would take me 30 min, boy was I in for a surprise. It took me 2 hours and a half to complete the trail, and I walk kinda fast.
STICK TO YOUR RIGHT! You'll come at several forks, but if you stick to your right you'll be fine. An amazing trail, highly recommended.

Good after a rain. Can become dry during summer during drought years ESP waterways.

Really scenic area. Great place for dogs!
Good distance on the trail, not too much splitting, clearly marked. Mix of steep, rocky/rooty hills and flatter areas. Would be careful running on this trail, surface is uneven at times. One of my favorite trails in Austin!

Starts off pretty flat but does elevate. Breaks into multiple trails, which are marked. Easy to navigate on the side with the parking lot, clearly marked. harder to navigate on the other side, lots of rocky/steep ledges & not marked. Got lost, but was fun haha. Will hike this again!

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.

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

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.
