This stretch of the Guadalupe river is very popular as the State's premier trout fishing stream. The Guadalupe River is the Southernmost sustainable trout fishery in the nation.

We went close to the area below the dam to see the water being released. While the river was pretty, with beautiful cypress trees and clear water, there was a HORRIBLE stench. We left because of it. The next day we read that some dogs had gotten poisoned and one died playing in the river near that location. There was supposed to be a sign warning people not to go in the water because of a potential algae bloom - which is what we smelled. We saw NO SIGN, so they did a FEEBLE attempt to warn people. Here is an article about it.

Nice views, child and dog friendly. We stopped and waded in the river, somewhat secluded, lots of shade.

Awesome sights and love hiking by the river. When it's hot out, you can just stop, stick your feet in the water, then keep hiking. Beautiful trail.

Great little trail! You can hear families playing in the water so it's not the quietest hike. It's a great hike for beginners. Be sure to use the restroom before and bring water, as there are no facilites around.

Nice trail - good views... Great for trail running (although doing so with a dog is not so easy - lots to smell and a few loose dogs on the trail as well.) as has minor elevation changes to keep it challenging. Watch for osprey in the trees challenging the fishermen for the game! The trail is mostly dry (one area where you'll have to tiptoe across some muddy spots!) and only a few real rocky spots. At one turn, a tree has fallen over the trail/steps. Boldly go to the right across the loose rocks and the trail is right there for you! Squirrels, deer, cardinals and hawks abundant... Fireflies are great in the summer/fall! Enjoy - but, please, leave no trace!

I have hiked this trail twice this week and I must say, what a great work out! It has great elevation changes that if done right really work the legs! This trail runs parallel with the water so it's super pretty to boot! My only complaint is that the trail ends abruptly due to debris in the way of the last bit of it. But it's still a great choice!

Very pleasant trail and well marked. We were a bit confused about when it ended, but that was mostly because my Fitbit misreported the distance. Several people stopped and swam in the river. Nice trail.

It was pretty and fun! With plenty of steps....

Elevation was good, not just straight forward!

Great hike! Easy to find. A majority of the trail is shaded. The access to the water is perfect for a hot day. Can't wait to hike this trail again.

It's a good hike in and out. A fair amount of elevation changes, but I love this trail. It's well maintained and always clean. Since I live close to the trail I'd like to thank all the tourists for keeping my home clean.
