Super fun trail. Crank, crank, crank, lean back and huck! Pray for good luck.

Pretty, lots of creek crossing. Take your bug spray though, and if you're bringing dogs bring a towel.

Great it you're looking for a challenging trail! The only reason I'm rating it a 4 is just because I was expecting the total distance of the trail to be 5 miles but it seems like the only way you're getting 5 miles out of it, is if you count the distance you go back. Definitely would recommend! Bring good shoes, you're going to be going up a lot of stairs.

This is only my second official weekend in Austin after relocating for a job, so I needed to do some exploring. Got on this app and saw that this trail was less than a mile away from my apartment. It doesn't have any super steep climbing to do, but is very picturesque as you follow a small Creek the whole way. A little hot for a hike, but it was really shaded so it wasn't too bad! I will be coming here as often as I can since it's so close.

The part of the trail I hiked yesterday is fairly similar to the rest of the greenbelt, but the pathway leading to and from it is very challenging. The Hill of Life, as it's called, is for experienced hikers because it's steep and winding. Overall, the area near Sculpture Falls is the best part of the trek.
