We were a little confused about where to enter but started at the Barton Springs pool parking lot. Pretty easy hike to some beautiful falls/rapids. The kids wore bathing suits and had so much fun playing in the rapids. Lots of poison ivy along the trail, just be aware.

Had a lovely hike to Twin Falls and Sculpture Falls on the Barton Creek Greenbelt. Went on a Monday after a busy weekend...saw the trash and dog droppings left behind from the weekend. It is a lovely spot to hike, but too many folks have their dogs off of the leash running amok. The creek and falls are lovely with... More

This is a beautiful walk in the spring when the water is flowing. In March, before everything is leafed out you get to see more of the Creek while you are walking. The first part of the walk is downhill, but not difficult to traverse, until you get to the riverbed area, and it is basically flat after that, all... More

I had lived in Austin for almost 30 years before I hiked the Barton Creek Greenbelt. It is a great place to hike within the city limits. The terrain is surprisingly varied and even a bit hilly at times. Some ascents will actually give you your daily cardio work-out. Throughout warmer months ( which is most of the year in... More

Poor Austin...so dry for so long. But not this trip! Being a native Austinite, I have been at Barton Creek when it's flowing and when it's bone dry. It is beautiful in it's own way in either condition. On our latest visit, the water was tumbling over the rocks and the skies were partly cloudy. Our son led us to... More

This place is an oasis in the middle of the city. The park is accessible to mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing. Very good rock climbing for beginners.

We enjoyed our hike but drought has prevented any pretty views and the outhouse was disgusting. We have hiked near and far at many national parks, so maybe our expectations were too high. The graffiti took away from the nature, as did the sounds of traffic. We started at the Barton Creek entrance.

Great for walking or biking. MANY places to rent bikes in Austin. Pay up and go. Very active small-town-feel city. Friendly people.
