First, the falls are wonderful and totally unexpected as this is in the middle of texas! The air is a bit tropical and humid, the climb down to the viewing area at the end of the trail is rocky and steep. I went in middle of August so it was very hot, humid, and miserable. Seeing the falls and the Colorado river was definitely worth it though.

The trail is mostly barren, minimal shade, and the ground is rocky so it's a little rough on the feet and ankles. Dogs are supposed to be on leash and pet owners are supposed to pick up after them however it didnt seem most people were following the rules.

This trail is difficult simply due to terrain being rocky, steep, and being shade less. It's a great hike with a nice reward at the end... only problem is you have to hike back!
