Easy trail. Going off the wooden path leads you to some pretty sights if you follow the river.

Ok trail. If you want to go off trail name sure to wear pants. It can get a bit thorny.

Nice trail....gone really bad. Take your trash with you! There is a dumpster at the parking lot. If you can carry it in....you can carry it out. And...it will be much lighter and more compact.

Easy short hike. We reached the falls at .40 of a mile, took. Some neat shots and explored for another 2 miles. Shaded and well marked.

It's an easy hike with a pretty view in some areas. However the smell coming from the area of unmoving water was pretty bad.

Really beautiful scenery, but gets pretty crowded pretty fast.

My expectations for the quality of Temple/Belton parks and trails is pretty low, so this trail exceeded them. It offers some nice scenic views by the dam, a decently marked trail (the informational signs are all too faded to read), lots of options for accessing the water, and falls that are actually flowing (a rarity in the Texas summer). However, there are definitely some sketchy characters that hang around the area, so I wouldn't go alone. Watch your back and bring protection. Also, the falls themselves get crowded and people aren't the most polite about sharing the space. Expect dogs to be off-leash and dog poop all over the trail (no poop bags or trash receptacles and people just aren't responsible dog owners).
