Want to do in Austin Map

Loved all of it. So peaceful and perfect.

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.

Awesome hike!!!

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

Excellent access, especially from Pemberton Place neighborhood.

This is a beautiful trail in the fall. It is crowded with foot traffic in some spots but the views are great.

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.

today, trail was a bit muddy from last night's rain. well worth the time.

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.

Good hike inside the city. Great for swimming when we get enough rain.

Nice, easy urban trail. Not moderate at all. Wide trail, mixed use. Ok for runners, walkers, cyclists, pets. Stevie Ray Vaughan statue on the south side of the river is cool.

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!

More of a dog park then anything else. My dog loves to go there to swim.

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 clean quiet trails. I hike with my one year old and some areas are a bit tricky with a baby on your back but she enjoyed the water crossing with water this time. I’d be nice if it looped back to entrance, just a preference but I’ll be going back to the trail on a more dry day :)

My first time on this trail was mid-October. The trail is mainly covered by trees which naturally created some wet areas to get around (but it was worth getting around them!) The trail ran alongside a river that had a lot of runoff- at the time. There were even rockwalls with trickling water dripping from the top.
Along the way were split trails. I took the path closest to the river, mainly taking lefts. After the first waterfall -about a mile(ish) or more in- the trail opened to a meadow of sunflowers. A little ways up, came another waterfall; much wider than the first. Lots of people swimming and playing in the sunshine. There were even kayakers paddling by at one point.
I was running and met up with a biker at the waterfall. I ended up passing them on the way back towards the end. It was well traveled and narrow. But the run way great! Enjoyed it and will most likely use it for another beautiful day!

Nice trail, mostly sandy gravel. Quiet in some parts, especially noisy and crowded the closer to zilker park you are. Only real complaint was proximity to traffic at certain points. Also, plenty of public restrooms should the need arise. Nice views of downtown Austin also.

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.

Good parking in Mopac frontage at trailhead. There are no restrooms on the trail. Fairly easy with some rough rocky beginnings. Trail follows the creek. We passed 3 waterfall areas. Lots of water in the creek. Trail was well shaded. For a longer walk, continue on trail beyond Sculpture Falls.

Love it
