Loved this trail, best one in Austin that I’ve gone on so far. Love the river and the balance rocks.

It ended up being a great hike, but the trail is not marked well, so we took a completely different route. We did about 7 miles, haha, but again it was a great time. I wouldn't recommend for someone without good balance due to all the rocks and no handrails. Also, there are some big steps. Parking might be a problem as it is residential. It was good for us on an October Saturday at 11a.

Just off the trail...super busy this morning but dry creek beds, happy pups and courteous users. Mostly shaded. Went to the 360 bridge & back, a good 3.75 mile walk. If you’re new to the trail expect some rocky, tree root tripping hazards.

Good trail to hike in the early morning, was really excited to see the river and formations around it. Walked the 5 mile loop was pretty easy with lots of rocks and incline but easily traversed. Will be back again and would recommend to anyone looking for an In town hike/walk.

Such a fun hike. Not steep at all. The water isn’t flowing but there is a small lake at the end of the trail. Very peaceful.

A nice, well maintained busy city trail. The water wasn't flowing but there was a pool at Sculpture Falls with a few fish. great easy getaway from the city.

no flowing water in the creek but there are looks at about the 6 Mike mark

Great for some Austin Texas mountain biking

Great trail, great hike!

Shady and rocky, with some inclines.

great trail, long, rough incline at the very end before you turn around. Good workouts. Hate the bikes. Go to a real mtn bike trail people. They come zipping around! There are too many people walking/hiking for those bikers to be on that trail. Wish they would go somewhere else. Graffiti all over the place, people really get a boost from damaging the natural environment. Of course, you have a majority of the rule-breakers. You got dogs off leashes, people dont pick up dog's poop. But all complaining aside, good trail. Didnt care for all the rocks.

The trail was very dry. Flat the whole way with several dry riverbed crossings.

It’s a mix of rocks and flats. The ride from the Bicycle Sports Shop was 18.5 miles out and back. There is some elevation. Most of the ride is shaded. It’s a fun workout.

Very dry in the summer time!
