Time Out says

Those with young’uns in their crew will appreciate the easy accessibility of most of the 2.5 trail miles located near the Capitol of Texas Highway. Start your day at the welcome center, where the St. Edward’s University staff has put together exhibits like a microscope station and a bird watching station. From there, use the restroom (there are no facilities along the trail), grab a map and make your way past a waterfall at Bee Creek to a scenic overlook, looking out for the endangered golden-cheeked warbler along the way.
