I’ve loved these trails for years. Before all of the construction I would give it 4 stars. The trails can be confusing if you don’t know the area. My favorite, so far, is starting at the water tower and turning around at the end of the Peninsula (2 hours, partially running). There is this a spot to swim at a secluded dock. Give it another three months and it won’t be secluded anymore.

The trail arrows are a bit confusing. I was following this map and I noticed I was off trail about marker 3.2 there was a plaque honoring a lake Travis school coach. The trail continues down to the right not left. I back tracked and notice it was a little hidden. It is a fairly easy trail if you don’t carry a 20 month old on your back. My daughter did love the water crossings and wild flowers. We enjoyed the picnic tables for a snack. Swing chair was nice after the hike to wind down.

This is one trail in a system of trails called "Canyonlands". The Canyonlands trailhead is located on Trophy Dr. There is plenty of parking, but I could see it getting crowded on holiday weekends. Kiosk at trailhead has a trail map. When facing kiosk, I went left and, well, that's the powerline service road. The trailhead itself is to the right. No dogs off leash on these trails. There's a bench near the very beginning, and some rather nice restrooms a little further down- but after that you're on your own. You could bring the family, but a stroller might be a little much, especially if you go down into the "canyon". The signage on these trails is rather good, but some of the arrows pointing the direction are, well, "more or less" correct. But it'd be difficult to get lost either way. The trail itself is good for trail running. Some tight spots; some twists and cut-backs; good elevation changes; rocks and roots (small to largeish), leaves and sticks; and foliage is maintained. A very small percentage of the trails are flat dirt, the rest are the rocky/rooty/leafy stuff. Some spots you'd better be careful- some of the trails go rather close to rather sheer edges of the "canyon". If you stay on "Rough Hollow", the trail shown here, you get all this stuff. Go onto any of the other trails, and you get more of the same. Also, it's 90% shaded, which a lot of people like. And oh, the water crossings all have bridges, which are good for those just walking, but for those looking for a good rugged hike, water crossings are much liked. As I said, the signage is pretty good. Be aware: if you see the "Mount Lakeway trail" or the "Bisset" trail, these do not loop back to the Canyonlands.

Beautiful shaded trail through Texas Hill Country. Loved hiking by the babbling creek.
