Halloween 2010 late in evening at dusk, this area of junipers gets foggy so you get good exercise hurrying along. plants are more varied after you cross Shropshire going towards Trotwood entrance or in meadow areas nearer Yager.

This was a fun hike, we did just 1 mile with my son in the evening. We only saw one other person on the trail. Will come back later and do the complete trail.

Surprisingly varied terrain

Much better hike than I expected.  There is a pond, flowing stream (does it always flow?) and lots of different kinds of terrain and plants.  Definitely great for the neighborhood and will be on my repeat list for near by hikes.

Only complaint is the property line for some houses is not clearly marked (i.e. no fence) and I don't want to end up in someone's backyard.  Especially after dark.

Very nice I'll be going back often

beautiful little trail through greenbelt area including some creekside in Austin's first Green Neighborhood. look for agarita, turks cap, twisted yucca, fossil shells, goldenrod, purple gayfeather, black willow, many oak varieties, and other native plants. small park planned in next couple of years along Yager that will connect to trail. nearby small frisbee golf. possibility for geocaching in the area.

Hidden gem

Nice hike for me and my dog this afternoon, with almost nobody else on the trail.  Good opportunities for photography along the western leg on Walnut Creek, too.

There's a small lot to park in at Blakeney and Rotherham Drive.

Awesome hike!

This hike was a lot of fun.  It's a V-shape around this neighborhood.  Lots of trees and are near a creek most of the way.  The apts & houses are close in a few places but considering where it is, has a bit of isolation.  You wont need hiking boots but the grass is a bit hight in places.  One of the better hikes in NE Austin!  BTW NE side goes as far north as Yager, and NW end goes up to the bend in Trotwood.  Very well signed in all places.
