Nice trail. Beautiful views. Didn’t have the opportunity to see any water because it was dry the day we hiked it. A lot of stairs!

I know it seems Wierd, but it IS Austin, Travis County, Texas...but you MUST have a reservation.

Tough trail with a heavy pack. Awesome, diverse terrain and an hr and 20 mins from Dallas to campsite.

My happy place

I saw baby ducks!

Really fun trail and hike. Lots of log stairs and a really good workout!

This set of trails was awesome, this was my first time to this park and I took my dog for a long hike. *Make sure you coat yourself in Deep Woods OFF* And You do have to be mindful of mountain bikers but I only saw a couple and they were very respectful. Lots of hills and great forest scenery. I’ll definitely be back.

Great trail

Great urban hike! Can be modified to be up to 10ish miles.

Amazing little gem! Easy to hike and follow trails. The spring sights and smells made this stop well worth it. A small part of the Brewery Lane Trail is temporary closed due to bee activity.

Husband and I had a great time. Just wore my tennis shoes which were sufficient 99% of the trail, climbing up the hill to the view I wished I had my boots just for some ankle support over the fallen trees and rocks. Fantastic view for central Texas up on the hill. Had a great time. Bring plenty of water.

Was nice hike with the dog. Not bad with the recent rain. Plenty of places to explore. Not many out. Wooded part of trails were awesome.

Awesome I didn’t even want to leave! I really cannot wait to come again!

Kristen and I walked this at 6 pm. Great sunset colors. Trees around the river were as tall as any trees in dallas. No one was on the trail or in the parking lot. After the train trestle the trail had been flooded and we had to turn back.
I liked the feeling of being remote even though we were in the city.

Great hike.

It was a great trail. Not too crowded. I work out a few days a week and this was pretty easy. I would rate it Moderate, not hard. It is a bit rocky is some areas of the trail.

Walk, bike, jog, bring your dog all on a dirt or paved path along winding Walnut Creek.

Love this trail!

Lots of great options- I just let my dog lead the way and took several side trails. Lots of flat trails that are easy and lots of opportunity to get to the creek.

Clean, smooth, wide concrete lit up path around pond with wildlife. Cool cause it’s away from cars & emissions!
2 restrooms, plenty of benches along the path & even a doggie fountain!

Did the North Loop first so in comparison this was really boring. It’s a nice trail for a walk very even and maintained, but not challenging or extraordinary.

Easy route, beautiful view of creek the whole time, and water is low enough to step across

Great time with the wife and kiddos!

My favorite. Can’t wait to get back.

Really solid trail. Well kept, and gorgeous. I’m a huge fan. Originally I was scoffing at the “hard” rating, but it’s an absurd amount of stairs - so be aware of that. I’d recommend starting 8820 Big View Dr, so you do the majority of uphill at the beginning.

Love this trail but I hate the dam crossing. I’ve hiked it 2.5 times now...storm came up on one trip and didn’t let up...and on the last trip i dropped down behind the dam to cross. The trail is in good condition. Map is available as pdf if you search for Good Water Loop Trail.

This was fun. We cut through about halfway to leave due to daylight hours. I wouldn’t rate it as hard the 11 yo and 7 yo did it easily but fun for sure

Interesting trail. The good is that it offers a wilderness experience close to downtown. The unpaved trails feel like game trails with just enough hills to keep it fun. Some of the bad things are that there is indeed homeless people camping out, although if you stick to the main trails it is unlikely you will stumble across any. I only saw two trail markers but it's pretty hard to get lost. I went on a rather gloomy day, so the whole experience had a bit of a fallout 4 vibe.
