Great trail with tons of stairs. Even more challenging if you park at the park at the bottom of the neighborhood and run up all the hill, however this is not for the light of heart.

Best trail in Austin if you want a good work out or to train for elevation.

I love going here! The creek is great, it is well shaded, and gives you a challenging hike. The thing to make it perfect is if I was the only one out there. My dog loves this hike.

Bring lots of water. 2 liters/person.
This is a tough hike due to lots of steps, and I mean lots, and the Texas heat. There is tree cover.

I have done the trail 2x. Once during the rain and it was great. The cover is really good for blocking the Texas sun. It's the most aggressive hike I've done here in Austin, but worth a good burn. Lots of stairs. Lots. Lots. Lots of stairs.
