Comments: I've hiked this trail many times in all sorts of weather - it is one of my favorite in-town hikes - the trail is wide on the east bank - sometimes high overlooking the creek and othertimes on the same level with the creek - weekends the trail can be busy and I have never been alone on the east side although, I have been alone on the shorter west side trail - this time only walked to the big falls - a grandfather, with 3 young boys came along. The boys need the break having just made the long exodus from Houston - they took their shoes off to spend time exploring in the water - cute kids that added to the hike/walk another opportunity to smile...always have to stop and explore the old stone walls and while walking note the changing variety of fauna - although dogs allowed I have come upon a deer or two, loads of dragonflies and all sorts of creek bugs, frogs and once had a water snake seemingly chased me down the stream. Love laying in the stream, clothes and all - the only downer is the sound of the traffic from loop 360 - the falls does drown out the highway sounds.
