It looks like a jungle. You can scarcely see the creek from the trail anymore. It was really special once. Still a great place to swim when there's water.

We enjoyed this hike with four adults and five kids: ages 11, 10, 9, 8 and 7 yrs. It was neat since we are from FL and our family from Austin guided us. The river bed rocks were brilliant white. Lots of roots and Stine...More

You have to do the Barton creek greenbelt. Beautiful setting and dip into the creek for a refreshing blast of cool water. Nice setting to read and hang out with friends, bring coolers and chairs

If you start on Mopac just south of 360, it is about 1.75 miles to Sculpture Falls. Of course you don't have to go that far and the trail goes farther than that. If you start at the trail head in Zilker Park it is...More

Great, relatively easy, walk with one of our pups. A bit of water, lots of limestone (?) walls, just a bit of elevation, and not too many people – – especially if you get started at about 7:30 AM. And, just a mile or two...More

Absolutely free... A short hike to the water is perfect for all ages. Very dog friendly, but please pick up after your pet. Bring in food and drinks, but please carry out all of your trash. The water is very clean and cool for swimming...More

We enjoyed hanging out in the water. The hike to the water was not bad. The rocks in the water were pretty slippery. Great place to spend some time.

We did not do the whole trail. I am wanting to say we only went a mile and a half in or maybe it was 1.25 miles and walked back to the 1 mile marker. The only cliff face I saw was where people jump off into the water, and it... More

Absolutely. I didn't any picnic tables, so you'll need a blanket. There are many great places to set up a picnic. No garbage cans, so you'll need to haul out.
