This trail is very nice! Well shaded and has lots of rocks along the path! The views from the trail are amazing with the hills and waterfalls! The only downside is that this trail is VERY popular which means there's always a ton of people hiking the trail and hanging out by the falls so if you want a more quiet trail I wouldn't recommend this one. Very nice place to go swimming, chill in a hammock and hike! My dog loves to go swimming near the falls, we always have a great time!

This trail is amazing! The last time I went was a month ago and It's well shaded and had a creek that runs along the trail which my dog absolutely loved swimming in! The trail is definitely challenging it has major elevation changes to get your heart pumping and takes around 2-3 hours to finish which you then have to walk back through the neighborhood or do the trail over again (since it's not a loop). There are however some smaller trails along the way if you don't feel like going the entire distance which are just as nice and still challenging!

Very enjoyable. Many dogs off leash and can get quite muddy on the banks but we really enjoyed it and so did our dogs. Been twice so far.

Good trail system that is very convenient for South Austinites. Nothing about it is too rigorous but a couple of side trails make it possible to get away from the crowds during peak times.
