Lots of dry creek bed up and down but great beginner trail with enough challenge to feel like you've accomplished something, beautiful!

We hiked from Zilker trailhead (Barton Spring Pool) to 290 trailhead (by Specs) in a little over 3 hours. Trail markings were not often enough and we ended up far off the main trail more than once and had to backtrack and thus logged 6.5+ miles instead of 6. The unofficial trails are just as wide as the real trail, so we needed GPS to find our way back and also to stay on target. It was not as difficult or steep as we expected (for hiking). I would rate it "moderate".
Very shady, so is appropriate even on a hot day. All of the water crossings were bone dry today, so no wet shoes for us! We used RideAustin to catch a ride back to our car for $11 plus tip and were highly satisfied with that service.
