I thought this location was great for kids except for it was a little slippery after the rain there's a nice park at the entrance of the trail not crowded.

It was cute .5 mile loop. I walked around four-five times around to equal 3.0 miles and being dogs watching since I don’t have dogs. This is a good place off leash for dogs to play and swim. I’ll come back again with friends and their dogs. LOL!

Just me, my dog, my music and Mother Nature. I came early. Not heavily populated. Not much elevation. Great trail for my dog and I to indulge.

The trail is alright, not really anything that scenic. This is a designated off-leash dog area, so expect to see lots of dogs off-leash. Saw a lady with 11 dogs, all off-leash. She also had no baggies to pick up after the dogs. Hmm... Lots of people who use this trail are incapable of picking up their dog's crap. There's also lots of people who will bag the crap then leave it sitting by the side of the trail. Stretches of this trail are permeated by the smell of dog feces. Saw a bag of dog crap someone left about 50 feet from the trash can. Also saw a pile of dog crap at the informational sign, within 20 feet of the doggy pickup bag dispenser and the trash can. So, if you like mediocre scenery as well as the smell and sight of dog poop, this is the trail for you!

Great trail to hike with your dog off-leash. Weekends are busiest, but everyone is friendly as well as the dogs. Go during the week if you like less foot traffic. It’s easy to get lost so make sure to follow the signs!

I love taking my dog here for some off leash hiking and creek time. The water gets gross when the water level falls so I would not recommend if it hasn't rained in a while. I have come across snakes on the trail and in the water so keep a good eye out.

Great trail for people who are active but are beginning to hike ! It has challenges like elevations, passing through rivers, going under trees. It’s really nice !

This was our first time hiking since before our youngest was born. Let me tell you, this trail was so much fun! Ups, downs, rocks and trees!! There are a few places that smelled like sewer since you’re practically walking next to a sewer line the whole way. However, you can only smell it every once in a while. My 7 year old had a blast checking everything out!

This trail was okay. Not a lot of great views/scenery, but it was a nice easy walk. Pretty busy, but all other trail users are very courteous.

Great hike and was able to get my 6YO out there as well. Water at a perfect level right now. They've closed off the water crossing at Capital of Texas HWY FYI

Nice trail but a little easy to get lost towards the backend to continue with the loop! Beautiful scenery and "hidden" benches to rest and take it all in.

Trail is okay. Lots of families and people blasting music on their phones. Several power lines to admire along the way.
