Location: Commons Ford - Waterfall Trail

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 3.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: 1 minute


I've lived in Austin for 16 years and I've never heard of this place.  It was terrific.  There was no one there.  We saw a few people on the river, but no one in the park.  It could have been because we got there at 9:00 on a Sunday and the park does not open until noon for cars.  We just opened the gate and walked in.  The falls was not a falls because there was no water but the hike was terrific.

There is also a great area for picnics.  This is a spectacular park in the middle of town.  I highly recommend it and I will be back.
