It's a nice trail with a lot of water rock crossings. Tons of dogs running around having fun. The parking lot is small and people have to wait to park at least on Saturday's but people come and go so just be patient for a spot to park.

Not very difficult and I'm pretty out of shape. It's pretty, you cross the creek a lot, at times with not a clear line of rocks, so you'll probably get your shoes wet (it's really not deep, it's not a big deal). They allow dogs off the leash and there were a LOT of dogs when I went, running around. It gets mildly more difficult further in, but for the most part the trail is flat. People leave their plastic bags of dog poop all over the place, unfortunately.

TL;DR It's nice scenery, it's not difficult, don't go if you don't want to be approached by dogs throughout the trail. And your shoes might get wet.

Was beautiful expect for all the nasty doggie(plastic) bags full of poop all over. People shove them in holes of trees hang them in trees and it was honestly disgusting to see. Austin had gone plastic free so why not allow the poop to disintegrate naturally instead of picking it up and placing it into plastic bags. Make zero sense. Hmmm dog poop takes a few weeks and plastic bags, well never. Think people. Other than that it was a great hiking trail.

Easy trail. not sure why it's rated moderate. You cross the river a bunch of times.
