This is a great hike close to Austin.  It was very dry and none of the creeks had any water; however, the views are spectacular.  One note, if you are camping in the primitive area, don't take a wagon full of supplies.  There is a very steep uphill getting to the primitive hiking.

Everything about this trail is nice.  We went on the 4th of July and there was no one out there.  We did not pass anyone on the way out and only passed 7 people going to primitive hiking on the way back.  7 people over 8.25 miles is great for the solitude.

Make sure you stop at Jones Springs and check it out.  There wasn't much water in it either, but we had a little snack on the rocks.  There is a big sign so you won't miss it.

Not much for animals on this one.  All we saw were lizards, but they were fast little suckers.

All in all a great hike and highly recommended!
