Comments: I went with a group of other hikers and found this place to be the best so far in Austin. We didn't finish the hike but I will definitely be going back to see more of this place. We walked the dry river bed on one section and happened across two White Nosed Coati's running along the cliff ledges...very interesting animals! We did see some people with tents set up along the base of the cliff along the riverbed and inside some of the shallow caves. I don't think I will hike this area alone but overall I did feel pretty safe. Saw some rock climbers who couldn't have been nicer. Everyone on the trail were very friendly. Watch out for the cyclists!
