Go down to go back up

One of the most frustrating parts of this trail... you go down dozens of steps into gullies just to go back up the other side! [River Place Nature Trail]

Hiked through the St. Edwards Hill trail, through the preserve, to the preserve trailhead (as marked on here), through to the other side and along Whisper Ridge Drive (?) for about 1.2 miles. Then we turned around and retraced our steps. We only saw one other group (of 3) along the whole way - probably because Texas football was playing at the time!

As tough as ever

My wife and I had been working out for weeks prior to an international trip - for which we wanted to be in excellent shape. So, we packed up our backpacks (about 15 lbs each, but getting lighter as we drank water) and headed out for the toughest trail we have been on here in Austin. We pushed ourselves through the heat and made it through it in a respectable time.

Good no-elevation-change hike
