We set out with 4 adults and two 2 3/4 year olds.. slow pace, plenty of kid carrying. But we did a little over 3 miles and had lots of fun.

Headed out for a solo hike intending to follow a particular trail and break in my hiking boots and new camera. The directions to the start of the trial were spot on, which is always greatly appreciated. Even better, there was plenty of parking. There is greenbelt parking and also parking in the adjacent business park. I didn't see any signs about not parking in the business lot, but a got a...

Hiking | 6.7 miles (1.6 miles away)
This is a hike done on Austin's wonderful urban Greenbelt trail which parallels lower Barton Creek before it enters Barton Springs and ultimately flows in the Colorado River that is dammed up into Ladybird Lake (Formerly Town Lake).  This hike was done a very cold day right after a hard freeze where temps fell into the teens in the city.  This was part of larger cold snap that affected most of the...

Barton Creek Rock Bridge
by bikrclickr on Apr 24, 2011
Austin, Texas, United States
Hiking | 1.7 miles (3.5 miles away)
One of my favorite parts of the Barton Creek Greenbelt. Just an hour long hike.  Note that much of the this track is not along the main trail.  Includes some climbing and a nice view of the creek from a nice rock bridge that is atleast ~100 ft above the creek. Too bad that there was not much water. Blame it on the rather dry season.
