The Great Hills Park Trail in The Quarries Park offers nice water views.

The Great Hills Park is easily accessible from downtown Austin and is shared by hikers, trail runners, and dog walkers. This is a great location for wildlife viewing. The trail is very well maintained, with lots of creek crossings. The trailhead is located in a neighborhood on the NW side of Austin.
