Nice trail with good mix. River crossing was about one foot deep so be prepared. Good signage (thanks Boy Scout Troop 101). Bring water as limited shade.

This trail was pretty challenging. Long stretches without shade and the horse fly’s follow the entire time. However, along the way there are several creeks that you can stop at and refresh. Definitely a life saver when there’s little shade. I hiked all the way to Joan’s spring and was a little disappointed. It was a pretty far and challenging hike for what you get to. However, there are some hidden gems and decent views along the way! I would not recommend this hike for beginners or people who enjoy leisurely , scenic hikes.I was happy to push myself and finish!!

Nice clear trail for days when its not too hot. There's very little tree cover, so we cooked in June. Pretty wild flowers and a creek

One of the best trails I’ve been on. Lots of creeks with nice gems along the way.

One of my favorite places to be in south Texas ❤️

Well marked, very beautiful views from most parts of the trail.

I had seen the pictures of the falls and thought they looked cool but they really don't even come close to showing how beautiful they are. My fiancé and I explored around and just sat down and looked around at parts. Extraordinarily beautiful.

A nice trail with tons of wildlife and some beautiful creeks. The park trails map they give you will say it's around 6 miles but that's not true. All trails is correct, it's about 7.2 miles. There is little to no shade for large stretches so be warned. Had a great time with my fiancé though it was challenging.

So I enjoyed this trail but it can get monotonous at times. The small waterfalls were majestically clear which was lovely! If you’re an experienced hiker it will not take you 4 hours as the guide map says. And the whole wolf loop with Jones spring included from the parking lot was 8 miles. Primitive camping spot about 2.2-.5 miles up wolf loop. Nice spots Pretty well marked and my all trails followed to a T.

The river crossing was high but got across to do the hike. nice but average. I think best hiked counter clockwise

This was a nice trail. The main trail is well groomed but also very sunny, so if you’re fair complected bring sunscreen. What is nice about this trail is if you dare to venture off on the rabbit trails that go through the trees you will certainly find some nice gems. My favorite part of the trail was venturing off when we reach the primitive Camping area. We took a rabbit trail that went down to the river very beautiful! Just a bit of a warning these rabbit trails are very challenging and require a lot of climbing, But the reward is well worth putting forth the effort.

The northern loop of the trail was kind of boring, very paved, very flat. Not much to see. If there was a river overlook we missed it. We enjoyed the southern part of the loop more. More native trails, more interesting.

Super Fun and Pretty, Amazing scenery great spring!!!

Pedernales Falls really gives you a look at how beautiful the hill country can be. We hiked the wolf mountain trail, had a picnic at Jones spring, and enjoyed the weather. The trails are well maintained and pretty flat. They are VERY sunny though, so sun protection and extra water is a must!

Pretty cool area. Namesake of the state park. Worth the hike.

Easy trail with a little rocky terrain. Small but pretty waterfall. Habitat immediately next to the falls was closed, but you could view the falls from an overlook.

An okay trail with a few side treks to little creeks, which is nice when they’re running in spring. The trail is basically an unpaved park road with a few interruptions of cracked asphalt and little shade . Nice views of the surrounding hills, and some pretty wildflower spots though. Overall, an easy trail for a good walk, but it’s not my favorite by a long shot.

We loved this trail! Easy hike down. Lots of climbing on the rocks for the kids. In this particular spot there is no wading, but so much to see and climb on it didn’t matter. There is also a lovely sand beach to just relax on. Must see in Austin. We can’t wait to go back!
