Comments: Most of the hiking that I've found in the Austin Metro area is pretty flat so I was thrilled when I got on this trail and it actually climbed a hill. The first time we went, we followed the Creek Trail for a while, then crossed over and climbed up the steep bank to meet the Hill Trail towards the top. The next time, I followed the directions provided here and it was a less challenging climb, but still got my heart pumping. My dog loves hiking on both sides of the creek, but we both like the Hill Trail better because it's shady and quiet. I'll definitely go back!
