Definitely easy to get lost, needs some trail markers, but other than that it was a decent hike. No views, and lots of water for the dogs to swim in.

Beautiful shaded trail

Perfect for kiddos and alone. Beautiful.

Has nice area for dogs and kids. Can be be crowded, but lots of green space.

Took my dog there yesterday. It was really fun for her and not too much of a hiking challenge for me (which is a good thing). We had to cross the creek about 10 Times; so wear hiking shoes and cross carefully. Lots of friendly people and dogs. Total hike is just under 3 miles. We did inadvertently go off trail a couple times. But we managed to get back on trail within a few minutes.

So much space to explore! With so many access points and side trails, you can really tailor your Greenbelt experience to exactly what you're looking for.

Nice trail, saw 3 deer, easy to forget i was in Austin. Be mindful which trailhead you enter from though, i got a bit turned around.

A nice scenic loop trail with views of Austin and a small waterfall.

Apart from falling in the water at the beginning of the hike, the trail was uneventful and pleasant for me as a beginner.

Total BS GPS puts you in a neighborhood you would have to cut through someone’s yard this app sucks

This is private property and they prosecute don’t waste your time like I did .

I did this hike a while back in 2016. Loved the scenery, a decked out pond at beginning with a small shaded river running through bottom of mountain. The climb gets real so I just went from the bottom to the top where it comes out on River Pace Blvd.

Very fun, love sticking my feet in the water as the freezing current flows over my feet. The best time was when we accidentally discovered a goat trail and hiked through the rugged terrain. It also has long fun hikes with stunning views.

I love this hike so much! you can go as far as you want & it’s the beautiful the whole way. & it’s very pet friendly!

If you get off the paved trail, you may forget you are near civilization. It is nearly impossible to get lost because it all eventually loops around no matter which trail you take. There are some really nice hidden gems back there. Explore!

As usual, got a good workout and discovered new trails, new ways to run around and have fun. These Valburn and Bull Creek trails make for almost endless exploration and varying terrain.
