Pretty hike! lots of cool springs and pools along the way. A couple of overlooks. No good view of the falls though.

Good hike overall. Extremely great views. Easy going trail and lots of people.

Nice wide trail through shrubby brush. Definitely got my workout in through distance not so much through elevation change.

Just to make it clear up front, you're not going to see much water on this trail. There's one small spring and a few dry creeks, but any pictures you set of waterfalls or rock hopping are probably from the actual Pedernales Falls to the north.

This was a fine, very easy hike. Wide trails and not much elevation change. Not many views, just a lot of brush and short trees. Seems like it'd be good for mountain bikers and trail runners. As a hike it was solid but unspectacular.

It’s okay! I got my exercise but the trail is more wide and out in the open. I wish there was more shade. And don’t forget, it $6 a person to get in. I completely didn’t know until I got there.

most of this is through scrubby forest, but there are some nice vistas overlooking the river.

I visited the park some years ago and really enjoyed the Hill Country views from the trail as well as creek/river overlooks.

Beautiful landscape but not a lot of shade once it hits about noon. Pack plenty of water.

Nice trail, not special though, mostly gravel road, might be better for biking, clean, quite, little shade, nice but not a destination.

Great trail close enough to Austin but far enough from huge crowds. Lots of neat stuff to see along the way.

First part of the trail is a road with the second part being a true trail. The best part of the trail is by Jones Spring and along the bluffs overlooking the river.

several miles of this trail are packed gravel. the trail is very wide during these sections and therefore provide very little tree coverage. once you get past this section on the out, it becomes much more winding, tree-covered single track, and worth trekking through the rest! the trail isn't always the best marked but if you have a paper map with you, you should be OK since you may not get coverage.

Beautiful park! The falls are amazing just be careful because the falls trail will flash flood quickly if it has raining prior. Our dog loved it!

Stunning view of the waterfalls and challenging trails. There are multiple springs you can hike trails to and go swimming.
