Great trail, for hiking. We saw a lot of water spots and several shaded areas. Elevation change is good too! Not that many people on the trail.

It was a nice trail and a nice walk to go on. I Was not able to walk the full trail as one of the bridges were upside down and broken about 1.82 miles from the starting point. So I went through the neighborhood and walked back to my starting point. Walking through the neighborhood was terrible as it was supper hot and hardly any shade.

Great scenic hike thats mostly in the shade. Lots of easy creeks to pass and changes in Terrain. Reminds me of a mini easier Riverplace Nature Trail. Only knock is that you have to walk through a neighborhood to reach the other side of the trail

Great for families with small kids. Northwest branch leads to very nice developed playscape. Lots of forks in trail offer variety and constant water crossings break up an otherwise easy walk.

Beautiful hike! Took us just over an hour to complete. There was quite a bit of river hopping that the kids enjoyed but my wife did not.

This trail isn’t bad. My biggest complaint was the sewage smell in parts. It was also pretty muddy and slippery. I also didn’t like the part of the trail that made you walk through a neighborhood. There wasn’t signage in the neighborhood so I had to pull out my phone to be sure I was going the right way. Signage on the actual trail was pretty good! Otherwise, this trail would be a nice place to bring kids or go for a quick run/walk.

I've been walking this particular trail for years and every time I finish my hike, I come out refreshed. The soothing calmness of this trail is a great change of pace from the hustle and bustle of Austin itself, and I couldn't recommend it enough. Besides, you'll run into nothing but nice people along the way. 6/5 stars.
