Beautiful views. Steep stairs with no handrails but easy access to the river to cool off.

Great views of the Guadalupe river, plenty of places to stop and enjoy the cold water. Great for dogs if they are ok running into other dogs on the right trail. Mostly shaded. Areas is steep steps but mostly smooth sailing.

Beautiful, mostly shaded. Not for biking, too many steps. A few wooden bridges. You can see the water through the trees. Definitely worth the hike.

It was a mostly shaded trail and the views of the river were beautiful! We stopped along the river at a few spots along the way to cool off. The water was freezing, even in the summer! Definitely going back!

Short but scenic, not difficult hike path parallel to the Guadalupe River. There are houses on the opposite bank, some more attractive than others. Lots of huge Cypress Trees, and you really are hiking right next to the River. Shady and wooded, but even wearing a 25 lb backpack it was not much of a workout. Worth doing for the river ambiance and scenery.

Nice local trail! Trail is dry. At .5 miles you don’t go into the river but walk on a ridge 15 ft above the river.

Great little inclines (about 100 ft elevation gain), plenty of shade and follows along the Guadalupe river which makes it just a few degrees cooler. Weekdays are much quieter in the mornings. Clean trails and there are bags at the trailhead if you want to do your part and help pick up around the trail. Beautiful, clear water and you can indulge after working up a sweat at this nice little trail.

Kid friendly - quick in and out. Can access river front and dip your feet in the icy cold water! Refreshing after the hike. Recommend combining with another trail of looking for miles or steps - relatively flat trail.

I've been down this trail probably about 10 times so far - it's close to my house and I like to fly fish this area. This little river trail is the best way to access the Guadalupe River just south of the Canyon Lake Dam. The trail is almost completely shaded and can get pretty muddy if there was any recent rain, although it's generally pretty dry. There are several washed out areas, but they all have well-built bridges over them. There are no particularly steep sections, but there are quite a few places with several steps up or down. About half way down this trail, you get start to see little branch-offs to the river - this area is your best river access spot with a large (several hundred feet) section of flat rocky shore as long as the water isn't too high.
