Beautiful! Pretty easy and short. Bummer we weren't able to get in due to high bacteria.

absolutely beautiful! trail goes down hill most of the way. towards the end there is a metal staircase that can get slippery, so use the railing.
it's a busy trail so he courteous and share the walking space.
wear good walking shoes, hiking boots not necessary.
bring CASH ONLY at the gate.
bring your camera!!! soo gorgeous.
we waited about 20 minutes to park on Monday afternoon.
PLEASE PACK YOUR TRASH OUT.

we carried our kids (1.5 yr old and 8 month old), doable. but easier with a carry pack.
a small blanket or beach towel would be nice if you want to have a seat and hang out for a few.
river trail was closed
no swimming when I went on 3/13/17

cost 15 bucks, but the view and geology are worth it.

Beautiful place well worth the trip.

I made the video.

Must see if you're in Austin. We made a special trip from Dallas and were not disappointed. Hamilton Pool is breathtaking and the hike to the river was peaceful.

The pool at the end is the payoff. The scenery along the trail is OK. The pool was closed to swimmers when we went, it gets shut down for safety at times. The pool and waterfall area is well worth the drive and meh hike. Local BBQ institution, the Salt Lick is on the way from Austin, highly recommended as a feed stop.
