Nice trail. Some parts are a bit rocky. Good for a hike. I might call it moderate due to some rocky terrain. I
It does pass quite close to private homes. Not a huge drawback for me, but it's not a feeling of getting away from the city like other trails.

Very muddy but still manageable. So many scenic points. Lots of kids and dogs. Love 

This was a great trail for hiking with the pup. Saw some great water features of the river.

Beautiful peaceful and yes very rocky but so worth it. I couldn’t go to far time did not permit but definitely coming back with my family.

Excellent hike in town! Great overlook and beautiful water.

we went in the back way through a neighborhood thanks Google maps

Very good for hiking, but not for biking. Spent half the time walking or carrying my bike over the rocks. Also very muddy

The Creek was too high to safely cross with my small dog this morning. Beautiful day for a hike though, hiked up the north bank to the treatment plant at Lost Creek and back.

Very pretty, nice trail, although VERY crowded.

You won’t be sorry. You can go right to dam or left to falls.

Beautiful, but extremely crowded on nice weekends. Next time I plan on trying it midweek and seeing if it’s any better.

Great trails and views. Loved the water. Took lots of great pictures. Great for kids and dogs.

Great views. Felt like you were not anywhere near the city even though we were. Great for kids and dogs.

very nice

Loved all of it. So peaceful and perfect.

Always a good choice, although most people think so, as they're always tons of people around. Easy hike, just a little rocky at some points.

Awesome hike!!!

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

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

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!

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.

Nice trail was pretty easy in my opinion vs moderate but a few small areas where it got Ricky/uneven.

Best part about this for us was that with the dogs it was pretty shaded-no water for now that we saw as we turned at about the 1.5 mike mark.

A pretty easy trail, but long so it's still a workout. I went around 9 am on a Saturday and it wasn't crowded at all! It's shaded the whole way, which was nice, and very scenic. It's well marked, too.

Fun trail and well marked. Ran the first three miles during the early morning hours with light trail traffic. For runners, I would recommend trail shoes as some sections were a bit technical (rocks, roots, unstable footing). If you are looking for a trail where you don't need to watch your step, I'd recommend the Lady Bird Trail.
