Great mild trail! Great for families and children for an outdoor hike. The trail is decent for running. There are a few locations without markers so it’s easy to get off trail. Great views and the trail run right off the water. Ample parking located at the trail as well.

The trail was short and easy...fun w 3 kids. But the water level was low. Not as high as the pictures. Kids still enjoyed!

For parking, just park at the main St Edward's lot. Whether coming from the north or the south on Spicewoods Springs Rd, it sneaks up quick, on the west. Once parked, there are three trail heads, one on the southern end of the small lot, one on the northern end, and one in the middle.To get to this particular trail, you can take any trail head, and just keep going west at trail intersections (whether you go through the thicker trees on the north most trail head, or you find the more open fields and trees on the two other trail heads). Once you get right alongside the creek, head north. This trail is like others at St Edward's park: wide at some parts and skinny at others, dirt and rocks and roots, twisty, access to the creek. But unlike the trails to the west of the creek, this is not any kind of elevation change. You can run along the creek shore for some of the trail, but most of it will be more away from the creek shore. But don't let that deter you- there are several small trails which lead through the trees and vegetation to the west, down to the creek. Eventually you'll get onto a skinny, skinny trail not on the creek, and eventually you'll intersect with a road. if the trail goes past there I don;t know... Hmmm... maybe I should go find out just how long this trail goes north!
