Comments:

We followed the recommendation and its is a really nice trail in the chain crossing area (which is not even narrow as it looks in the pic) but after Mopac is fairly average, not close to the creek in most places, and it just dead ends in sight of sculpture falls.  Would be nice if you can cross to the north at Twin Falls and take the north side to Sculpture Falls and beyond.  We took a side trail that we thought looped around and it came out in Travis Country.  Still 3 stars but there are much nicer hikes on Barton Creek.  Mural under 360 is beautiful.
