You have to make a reservation for a hike Thursday through Sunday. You have to go to the Austin Parks page and find Reservations. We and everyone we saw this morning got turned away because none of us knew.

Loved it. Not too technical, for someone that’s from mostly fat land, this was a great exercise. Easy to follow trails and nothing that would get you lost, lots of people in the trails.

No water during the hot Summer months. The best time to hike this trail is in May. It's still a great hike regardless.

It was a good little hike, but the official entrance is closed. Plenty of shade from the sun and it wasn’t too bad in the heat even in the middle of the day. Bring plenty of water. Most of the creek and the falls are dry, but there was a pool to swim in or stick your feet in at the end of the hike. It was a pretty sight, but lots of spiders and frogs around the shore line so we just rested for a few minutes and went back. Worth the trip if you just want a good hike with some shade and nature!

Lots of fun! Goes to some fun water areas you can relax and refuel at. The main path is clearly the main path but there are some off trail paths that you may find yourself wandering! We had to use a side entrance since the main one was blocked by the city of Austin, but otherwise 10/10!

The trail is currently closed due to covid, but there is still an opening to get in to the left of the main entrance. The area is very dog friendly, but some of the areas are a bit rocky so be careful not to twist your ankles. Overall very nice and would probably be even better when there is more water :)

this a decent in town trail. first, the bad. it was dirty ( to be expected for trail in a highly populated area) and lots of graffiti on all the trail postings and on large rocks. very disappointing considering Austin has a reputation of having nice inclusive people. the water was low so no water falls and only a small portion at the had enough to jump into (but that's a weather complaint, not really about the trail). it was still pretty crowded for it being a weekday and it was technically closed, but everyone ignored the signs. the good. it's a good length and easy to navigate. parking was easy and is located in the city for the most part. I would bring a swim suit, even with low water still enough to enjoy. most people walking through looked to be more into the swimming part than the trail itself. still worth a see even for a pro hiker or the casual enthusiast.

My husband and I make the drive from Houston to hike this trail. We love it! Its more challenging if you continue on to climb the hill. Several areas to get into the water as you walk along the trail. This trail is very busy. We have found starting before 8 gets you less hikers/families but more cyclists and runners. We have had a great experience every time we've come here!
