Place is nice and the trails are well marked. It seems to stay busy.

Once you get yourself on the right trail it’s a great experience. Wasn’t able to finish the entire trail cause my phone died but was able to hit the key points, falls and bridges. Definitely will be going back in the future very well kept too esp for an unpaid park

Was fun with the kids however it is not stroller friendly even with a hiking stroller

It’s a real easy walk with steps and a swinging bridge. Pretty area with lots of people on the weekends!

Easy trail. Going off the wooden path leads you to some pretty sights if you follow the river.

Ok trail. If you want to go off trail name sure to wear pants. It can get a bit thorny.

Nice trail....gone really bad. Take your trash with you! There is a dumpster at the parking lot. If you can carry it can carry it out. will be much lighter and more compact.

Absolutely love this trail! It's so beautiful ❤️.

Good location for a day hike. There are many different trails ti explore.

Easy short hike. We reached the falls at .40 of a mile, took. Some neat shots and explored for another 2 miles. Shaded and well marked.

Love exploring this trail every time I go I experience something new!

It's an easy hike with a pretty view in some areas. However the smell coming from the area of unmoving water was pretty bad.

Really beautiful scenery, but gets pretty crowded pretty fast.

My expectations for the quality of Temple/Belton parks and trails is pretty low, so this trail exceeded them. It offers some nice scenic views by the dam, a decently marked trail (the informational signs are all too faded to read), lots of options for accessing the water, and falls that are actually flowing (a rarity in the Texas summer). However, there are definitely some sketchy characters that hang around the area, so I wouldn't go alone. Watch your back and bring protection. Also, the falls themselves get crowded and people aren't the most polite about sharing the space. Expect dogs to be off-leash and dog poop all over the trail (no poop bags or trash receptacles and people just aren't responsible dog owners).

love it. very relaxing and pretty views

I did like the hike do not let my stars fool you. however I expected more, the water by the fall is very shallow. However, this is great for kids approximately 2-7 years of age but much older after 10 or 15 Minutes they get bored. the water is very clear though which is a plus! there is very little room to relax by the falls all the adults kind of huddled together (although my husband and I didn't we enjoyed the shallow water and dipping out heads in the fall). In my opinion the hike was easy but only worth doing it once it was too small. but there was a cool suspension bridge we walked across but if you have bad balance we cautious. Also I saw alot of dirty diapers which was so disrespectful and made me angry. Also alot of sketchy people, not to be judgemental, that were around the falls they almost seemed homeless but I was unsure why they chose to hang around the fall. so don't go alone go with a friend and bring protection.

My second visit, nice park and trail, well marked in places, no marks other places, but cannot get lost, trails either end and you turn back, or you turn and rejoin main trail. Not as many discarded plastic bottles compared to my first visit in March. but still too many. This is why it gets 3 stars

Still one of my favorite hikes around the area. But seriously people...take your trash and towels/clothes with you. Please don't ruin the enjoyment for others.

Nice place. The trails are confusing,but we had a wonderful time. Walked everywhere there was a trail. It was very beautiful. A lot of people out there.

The suspension bridge and waterfall are cool. The water is the most clear/beautiful color! Saw a couple gopher snakes, but still freaked me out as we were getting deeper because the trails are confusing. Honestly, felt I would get lost if I kept going and scared to run into something worse. It's interesting though, you can find areas that are completely green and then you walk over and it's like you're in the desert.

PS- I hate to say this and I've never had to say this for any other trail- but it felt like there were some creepy people lurking as well. I didn't go alone and I wouldn't go alone.

This hike is poorly maintained! While the scenery was beautiful there was garbage everywhere, spider webs so thick it's hard to enjoy the view. It definitely was a moderate hike but the things above made it hard to enjoy.

it was beautiful! We went with four kids, the youngest was 19mths, and had a blast. The Little one had to be carried.

Here daily for a workout. Love it. Watch out for wildlife though. Snaked and bobcats are out!

Been here multiple times

dog friendly. small creek. just gorgeous. very easy to get lost all day in.

Love this! We are stationed at Fort Hood and I Love this beautiful area! It's nice to get away and enjoy. It has a large area to hike around and walk around. Waterfalls, pretty blue river and crystal clear in areas. Pet friendly. Suspension bridge is pretty cool to walk across too !

Not happy about the amount of trash that is left there. Lots of trash around water..and all over the trails, some of the trail markers were also pulled out of the ground

We checked the park out yesterday. It's a pretty place, and I love the falls, but we should have waited longer after the rain. It was quite muddy and we ended up with soaked boots. It was unfortunate to see how much trash people leave or dump there, and we didn't find the trails to be super well marked. There are red and blue (and maybe green?) posts to mark certain sections, but there were several smaller trails leading other places that weren't marked at all. All in all it was very pretty but we'd wait till it dries up before going back.

it is open, apparently it was closed for 3-4 months for repairs, wish they had put up a sign to let people know.
There are 2 marked trails, the red is better than the blue and you can do both same day. The red hugs the river. There is a suspension bridge, which is fun. very popular, parking lot was full by 10 am, but easy to park off road. Only disappointment was many discarded plastic water bottles . I am bringing a garbage bag next time I go
