This was my wife, daughter, and Is first hike. It was great scenery and was easy to navigate. It initially stated that it was suitable for children which it is if they are mostly playing in the water. If you are solely going for a hike with a toddler please make sure they have some sort of slip resistant shoes on/ hiking shoes.

Great little hike! Went on Labor Day and it was really busy. The trail was very difficult to follow so we ended up just walking through and around the water which was very nice. I'd definitely do this again!

This is not the way hiking trail. Things got crazy and we ended up on a steep cliff. It all worked out though!

Ran again, and I think I've failed to mention this the last few times. The signage is pretty horrible. I mean, the trail isn't meant to be a "walk in the park", it's a greenbelt. So sometimes the trail might be hard to follow- this trail is very good for exploring. But still, of the signs that are there, a lot of them don't really point the way and/or they are totally blank.

All in all, I still really like running here, but just thought I'd mention the signage, since I haven't in the past. Also, you can cross the creek and connect up with more trails, specifically a loop trail, behind the Bull Creek District park. it's rather pretty back there. If you're trail running and want to take it easy, like for a warmup or cool down, this little loop is good.

Connect this trail to the trails going into the nature preserve north of 360 and also to Spicewood Springs for a great run. Can be crowded in spots when the water is up and the sun it out.

Water was stagnant and too warm and too shallow. Would not recommend for hiking or swimming
