The trail is alright, not really anything that scenic. This is a designated off-leash dog area, so expect to see lots of dogs off-leash. Saw a lady with 11 dogs, all off-leash. She also had no baggies to pick up after the dogs. Hmm... Lots of people who use this trail are incapable of picking up their dog's crap. There's also lots of people who will bag the crap then leave it sitting by the side of the trail. Stretches of this trail are permeated by the smell of dog feces. Saw a bag of dog crap someone left about 50 feet from the trash can. Also saw a pile of dog crap at the informational sign, within 20 feet of the doggy pickup bag dispenser and the trash can. So, if you like mediocre scenery as well as the smell and sight of dog poop, this is the trail for you!

Great trail to hike with your dog off-leash. Weekends are busiest, but everyone is friendly as well as the dogs. Go during the week if you like less foot traffic. It’s easy to get lost so make sure to follow the signs!

Great trail for people who are active but are beginning to hike ! It has challenges like elevations, passing through rivers, going under trees. It’s really nice !

Nice trail but a little easy to get lost towards the backend to continue with the loop! Beautiful scenery and "hidden" benches to rest and take it all in.

It was a beautiful trail how ever very portly marked which made it kind of hassle when your trail running :)

Lots of shade. Tons of off-leash dogs. Great for running as long as you’re quick on your feet and can traverse rocky areas.

Definitely a hard trail. Need to have prior experience with mtb before coming out there.

The best trail in Austin to take your dog! Dogs are allowed off-leash. The trail is tagged as a mountain bike trail but bikes are not allowed on this trail.

We loved this beautiful hike with our two labs off leash! All the dogs we came across were super friendly. Nicely shaded.
