No scenic sights but a great hike to get your heart pumping!

The route shown goes into the nature preserve, which does not allow dogs. But you can continue to follow the river for a few miles with dogs. A few Kodak moments of the river.

Great hike and was able to get my 6YO out there as well. Water at a perfect level right now. They've closed off the water crossing at Capital of Texas HWY FYI

This is a great short trail. I went around 1pm and ran into only two people. It starts off with a great waterfall and continues with small ones through out the hike. It has some shade along the way but make sure you’re ready to get your feet slightly wet!

Great trail with some steep inclines. Great workout to get away from city life.

Super wet out there with all the recent rain! Be careful on the trail!

Heavily trafficked trails. Falls a little dry but there are lots of nice spots along the creek with pretty rock formations carved out from the water. Dogs off leashes here. No bathrooms or water fountains.

My second favorite trail for hiking and swimming at the Austin Greenbelt. A bit crowded, but if you go further down the trail it gets quieter. Good place to bring the kids, with little to no hiking to enjoy the falls.

Pretty trail but horrible signage. Hard to tell unless using the app where you’re going. Branching off the trail allowed us to see the waterfall- otherwise it would not have been on the central trail.

Fun with dog and littles

Pretty, but lots of road noise. Part of the trail is on a road where construction of a water tank is right there. Slippery rocks this morning after rainfall yesterday. The signage is confusing, the trail entrance isn’t the big wide path with lots of signs, you find a narrow opening in the gate near the entrance road.

Great hike! Stay right at the very first fork

Nice trail that doesn’t appear to be heavily used. We only saw two other people on the trail. It’s easy to follow but the markings aren’t good. We could have made our hike a loop instead of two in and outs but there are no signs at the top. It was still pleasant through a wooded area.

I got there about 9:30am Monday and was the only car in the parking lot, I did the whole trail and didn't see any others hikers until passing one trio when I was almost done. Keep right at every intersection/fork to be going uphill on the slipperiest steep parts. That saved me a few times when I did slip/slide on this trip, despite wearing good-quality hiking boots.

Such a beautiful site to see when most of the water has receded, and you get to see the view from down below. Some of the trail is overgrown and blowdown but nothing that we couldn’t get through as a group. Very easy and beautiful hike. The ending is the absolute best.
