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.
Great relaxing hike! Trail was well maintained. Well worth it!!
Nice out and back hike! It took us 1 hr 15 min to go up to the top, then 1 hr 25 min to come back down. It was a little too populated when we first started out ( mid-morning on a Saturday), but became less crowded as we went on. A good mix of climbing steps and some level areas, pleasant scenery the whole way-- I recommend this hike,
I love this trail. Do keep in mind that there's traffic and you'll see people running; others walking and groups from 2 to even 12 people. However it's friendly, people say "Good morning" and there is room to park.
Amazing. Definitely hard on your knees / ankles coz of the steps and constant change of elevation.
One of the hardest trails I've done in Austin. There are a ton of steps. Highly recommended !!!
Difficult because of the steps but fun trail to go exploring! Loved it :)
Kick butt! Worth every 5500 steps!
Lovely trail! The creek that goes along the trail was crystal clear. Dogs are allowed on leash only. This is one of my favorite trails in Austin so far
why is this marked with off road driving?
Loved it. Well maintained, great workout, beautiful scenery. Not too crowded on a weekday.
Great trail. If you are worried about the steps, start by the lake on Big View Rd. There is more elevation as you go up. Also, after you get over the small wooden bridges (less than a mi in), you can take a right at the trail junction to another trail head. I don't see it marked on this map, but just going there and back could be a less strenuous (and still scenic) route. Have fun!
