One of the easier trails I've ever done and I'm not in shape right now. It's not a walk in the park but I really don't see how this is hard, unless you are running or you are injured. The trail itself is a great experience. We didn't find a great overlook over the city or anything, it was overcast anyway, but the creek is lovely and makes for a number of photo opportunities. It took us 4 hours including lunch and frequent breaks on a slow pace.

Great workout!

Nice calm trail with a little bit of up/down. Hiked this and the rest of the trails in the park. Totalled about 3 miles or so. Scenery is okay and I enjoyed finding a trail which didn't allow dogs.

Hiked this along with the other trails in the Park. Waterfall was pretty low on water, so not terribly impressive. It's nice to find a trail around here free of dog waste.

Spent a little over an hour and hiked all the little trails here. nice to find a place where dogs are not allowed and there isn't dog feces littered all along the trail. Water was pretty low in the waterfall.

Couldn't find the entrance as it is posted on the map so as a previous reviewer mentioned we parked at the Highland visitors center and walked to the trailhead. With all the construction towards the end you can't find the trail, just paved streets, it really detracted from the hike.

Flat and uneventful. Not much to keep you interested if MB’ing this Trail.

Perfect hike for a random sunny day in February! A little rocky, but overall very doable and very pretty. Just watch out for bikes!

I gave this one 4 stars only because of the steep fees. I get the intent, but $10/head is a tad overboard. Go when they don’t collect. In fact, if they didn’t collect, I’d probably throw in a few $$ when I go. Running? Get ready for a tough scramble up the hill. Bottom part is very enjoyable, so if you don’t want the climb, start at bottom, go to hill and turn around. Great trail— your quads will love you for it!

This is more of a hiking trail with ups & downs. Very crowded on nice weekend days with families, Scouts, etc. probably due to the short length of each trail and they have nature programs for folks. if I go here, I usually run 2-3 loops and go early in the morning or almost dusk. There is water and restrooms at trailhead

I live only a couple miles from this place as jsut love it. I usually always take my coonhound, Bonnie, and most of the year the creek is flowing so she can drink along the way. It’s challenging enough to burn a few hundred calories but easy enough for it to still be an enjoyable hike on a Saturday morning! I love this place so glad I found it.

Pretty well trafficked. There are a few steep inclines and the scenery was nice but the trail itself was a bit short.

The route shown goes into the nature preserve, which does not allow dogs. But you can continue to follow the river for a few miles with dogs. A few Kodak moments of the river.

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

Great trail. 5.76 miles. Took 2 and half hours. Very steep at times. Not many people on a Friday afternoon, which was nice.

Pretty easy. The Possum heading into the Trinkee part has a decent amount of steps upwards, but it’s not too hard to navigate. Hasn’t been very busy either time I’ve went.

The $10 fee is only on Saturdays and Sundays from 9am-2pm in order to discorage overcrowding. As always a great workout again, and on a week day I had most of the trail to myself.
