The hike has less appeal than many in Austin. First, you start at a school. Second, the trail is messy with hanging vines etc that support no views near the beginning. Later you reach a fairly typical straight trail without vistas (after a rocky creek crossing). There are some pretty trees along this trail however, which I would count as the highlight of the whole hike. On the way back we crossed the creek at a different location and got somewhat lost. We had to backtrack and recross the creek to get back on the main trail. So there was a little adventure and room for exploring. One other plus, we saw no one else on the trail that day.
