“A great trail leading out to the Rough Hollow arm of Lake Travis and to further trails to the lake.”— Donovan Acker
Along the way, you'll have three creek crossings and plenty of 'interval workout' sections as you are pretty much going up and down the midsections of the canyons before you come to the crossing with the Peninsula Pass Trail.
The trailhead is clearly marked with a sign and begins on the lake side of the Rough Hollow Bridge. Note that 'Rough Hollow' is a community within the City of Lakeway.
There are two ways I would recommend you start this trail:
Way 1: Find parking at the Rough Hollow Info Center just up the road from the bridge (towards Hwy 71), and then run back to the bridge trailhead using the sidewalk access.
Way 2 : Do this trail as a segment of a larger run starting from the Lakeway Canyonlands and using the Rough Hollow Trail Connector to reach the trail.
