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.

This was a simple and easy hike. There were some pretty hill country views. I didn't have my kids with me but both my 5yr old and 3yr old could have done this. I will be back...kids in tow.

I"m out of shape and completed this trail without trouble. My 5 year old tagged along and only got tired on the last leg.

There is a lot of shade from the trees. The elevation seems to get a good breeze. Will be back.

Nice easy trail. Easy access. The trail has great hill country views as well as a good chance to see wildlife. Overall trail was enjoyable just not long enough.

Moderate hike nice view of Lake Travis. But in the future the view could be marred by the 1800 home sub division and commercial development proposed for that area. :-(

Easy hike for most there are some slopes that can be tough for small kids or senior citizens. Birding in the spring and fall is great, good diversity of flora and fauna native to hill country.

This is a nice hike, and quite easy. The smell of the trees and the abundance of wildlife make it a nice hike.
