Basic Information
This is a beautiful walk in the spring when the water is flowing. In March, before everything is leafed out you get to see more of the Creek while you are walking. The first part of the walk is downhill, but not difficult to traverse, until you get to the riverbed area, and it is basically flat after that all the way to sculpture falls. The walk to twin falls only takes about 20 minutes. It is definitely worth it to keep going to sculpture falls. I would say its approximately an hour total (each way), if you are going slow and stopping a lot. Neither of these are actually "waterfalls" - I would consider them to be rapids- but the water is flowing over the rocks in beautiful formations in these areas, and is definitely worth the walk. Between the 2 "falls" you will pass two massive live Oak trees on your right that are really something to see. There are also pretty limestone outcroppings. I lived in Austin for 12 years and never took this hike. I wish I had known about this beautiful place when I lived here. Note that when you are heading back to the parking area the trail splits in a not very noticeable way and you can accidentally keep going straight (as I did), and miss the upward climb to the parking area. There is a little marker with a left pointing arrow there - look for it! Another hiker told me that you can enter this trail at the "twin falls" marker on google maps where MoPac and 360 merge, as I did - or you can start at the other end - off of loop 360. There is a parking area where Scottish Woods Trail comes to a T intersection. I am going to try that half of the hike next!
