Not super exciting. Pretty short trail. The waterfall was more of a water trickle when i saw it yesterday. I would rate this easy, not moderate.

Nice trails, some decent climbs, but overall not spectacular. Views aren't great, but waterfall is nice. Great for beginners.

Stunning trail. There's a mix of everything, and enough altitude change that it's a decent workout for a short hike. I absolutely loved the waterfall area...so beautiful! If only you could go swimming in it...Only downside is the noise from 360 and there were a lot of bugs. Otherwise I highly recommend.

Great trail, amazing views and a small waterfall that falls into a crystal clear and fairly still pool of water below. There were more people than I expected but they were polite. Trails were very clean with no trash. Trails seemed very well maintained with pea gravel added for the wet areas. Small creek with crystal clear water and a pretty good current in some areas.

A great hidden gem just outside of Austin.

Nice simple trail. The waterfall was tiny when we went there. So unless it has been raining u won't see one. Nice views. No dogs allowed unfortunately.

This was a great, tree covered, quiet trail. Easy accessibility from Loop 360 causes a few places on the trail to have road noise, but those moments pass quickly. The closeness of the trail to the city and manageable length for families is invaluable. The views, trickling stream and small waterfall make it a very enjoyable experience.
