absolutely beautiful! trail goes down hill most of the way. towards the end there is a metal staircase that can get slippery, so use the railing.
it's a busy trail so he courteous and share the walking space.
wear good walking shoes, hiking boots not necessary.
bring CASH ONLY at the gate.
bring your camera!!! soo gorgeous.
we waited about 20 minutes to park on Monday afternoon.
PLEASE PACK YOUR TRASH OUT.

we carried our kids (1.5 yr old and 8 month old), doable. but easier with a carry pack.
a small blanket or beach towel would be nice if you want to have a seat and hang out for a few.
river trail was closed
no swimming when I went on 3/13/17

Must see if you're in Austin. We made a special trip from Dallas and were not disappointed. Hamilton Pool is breathtaking and the hike to the river was peaceful.
