Now known as Stillhouse Hollow Nature Preserve, a fire 8/31/14 took out the observation deck - http://kxan.com/2014/08/31/afd-working-to-extinguish-nw-hills-brush-fire/. This is a short, out and back, paved path. As previously noted, dogs (and bicycles) are NOT allowed. I think the "moderate" designation is for a short section that has a switch back to the burned out observation area-- basically as easy walk or jog. Probably not easily wheelchair accessible due to the now-gated-off unpaved parking area and this short elevation change area. After the recent drought, there is no evident "river" though the bottom of the ravine is probably damp. Didn't see a single person on a gorgeous 70 degree, sunny day. I look forward to a return walk during the spring wildflower season. "This small preserve is home to a few endangered species such as the Golden-cheeked Warbler and the Black Capped Vireo."

This trail was a bit of a surprise. It's literally 30 seconds from my apartment. The trail is beautiful with lots of creek crossings and nice terrain. There's a lot of road noise from the surrounding highways but put some headphones in and you're out in nature.
