Riverplace Nature Trail

Austin, TX

Great trail....tons of stairs. Good elevation. Even more challenging if you park at the park at the bottom of the neighborhood and run up all the hill, however this is not for the light of heart.

We hiked the trail at 1 o'clock in the afternoon. Brutal heat and very dry. The trail begins somewhat uneventful but then turns into a real butt kicker the last 2 miles. The steps are brutal. If you like short and tough this is a great trail. I wanted a tough workout and this trail definitely meets the test!! I thought the trailer was somewhat beautiful and the only negative was that it was dry. I loved the little strain to soak my feet in

Nice! Beginner and dog friendly. My small dog who had never hiked before walked more than half of it.

Enjoyed this trail with the dog. Very dog friendly even in the heat of the day. Not challenging at all but still nice with the tree canopy over head making for a nice hike.

Such a great discovery. Very challenging with all the stairs so made a great workout. My legs were very sore the next couple days. This is my new go to.

This is the most beautiful place in Austin that I've hiked. My dog loved all the readily available water anytime she got hot. My new favorite!!!

This was our first visit to this trail and we loved it!!!The trail is most shaded and a fairly easy one. I loved that there was a creek running along side the trail and we could cross over it at different points throughout the trail. We had four teens with us and they loved it as well!
