Beautiful trail, and so close to Austin! This was my first and I will definitely come back for the rest of it. Did only 6 miles in and back (12 total) this morning. We started at the Cedar Breaks trailhead and went clockwise. Yesterday was a snow day so when we started around 9:30am we still had some snow on the ground and some of the falls were frozen! The drawback was that on the way back it all became muddy :-) We were alone for most of the time; only when we headed back afternoon we saw a few hikers and couple of families. Note that my rating referrs only to the first 6 miles clockwise. Will come back for the whole loop in spring.
