We recently hiked this on a Saturday afternoon on a warm day. There were lots of people of all ages and dogs enjoying the trail and the creek. Parking at our trail head was in a residential area and we walked a couple of blocks. We hiked about 2 1/2 miles then turned around and hiked back. We saw no... More

The Barton Creek Greenbelt offers about 7 miles of nature trails inside Austin city limits along Barton Creek. It features several attractions along the way including the beautiful Sculpture Falls. Plenty of nice spots to take a swim along the way. The pros of Sculpture Falls: it's somewhat secluded (~1.5 miles from the nearest parking). The cons: it's about 1.5... More

My husband and I were taken on a special hike with our daughter as we were visiting her from out of town. What a delightful way to spend time with ones you love! Instead of sitting around watching a game or a show, instead of shopping, we went hiking. The trails were well marked. It was never over crowded nor... More

Barton Creek Greenbelt Nice trails close to down town and south of Austin. Great during springs after the rain when there are water to fill the creek beds and min water falls. There are many trails and not all are connected so search websites for maps and locations (not all trails are clearly marked). Best part of Austin to relax... More

The Barton Green Greenbelt used to be a nice hangout for nature lovers in Austin. Well, then growth happened and armies of people have destroyed the greenbelt. Trails like highways, plastic trash everywhere, destroyed vegetation, civilization trash like entire bridges picnic tables etc in the dirty water and so forth does not make for a healthy place anymore. And on... More

Such a beautiful place to go hiking! There are a variety of places to start hiking (Zilker, Gus Fruh, Violet Crown Trail) and lots of hiking. There's quite a few places to go swimming when it's warm, and there's some great climbing here as well. This place is a real treasure, and it's in the city which makes it super... More

This is a great hiking and biking trail within the city of Austin. The trail begins flat and easy near the Barton Springs Swimming Pool, but gets more steep, rocky, and muddy further south. The trail crosses Barton Creek in places, and is closed during periods of heavy rain due to flooding. Bikers and hikers share the trail in many... More

Easily accessible. I went hiking with family. We did not have a map of the trails and there was no sign to show how to reach the different spots or the creek. Pet friendly. trails can be a bit tricky, but can be done with moderate fitness. It's good exercise, free and fun. Will go again and try to find... More
