This miles long greenbelt is a true urban jewel. Surrounded by the city, a quick hike down to the trail and Barton Creek finds you in a wilderness area I haven't seen in any other large city. Barton Creek has several clear swimming holes. Ferns, trees, caves abound.

My friends and I went for a long walk on the trail and then found a great spot to dip in the river. It's a beautiful place and perfect for a summer outing!

Went there with a few friends and had a blast. We brought some tubes to float down the river and the small rapids. The water was amazing yes it was cold but felt great being so hot outside. We're already making plans to go back with even more people and tell everyone to check it out.

This place is great! I walked the trail with a few friends when I visited in March and I really, really liked this place. The path is clean and wide enough to accommodate lots of people (it's very popular with walkers, runners, bikers, and people walking dogs). The creek is very nice, is a very peaceful, and has plenty of... More

We walked as far as we could on the trail until a fellow traveler noticed a water moccasin snake sunning itself on a fallen tree.

The greenbelt is big but the most visited area- easy to get on Mopac AKA Loop 1/ 360 HWY- is called Twin Falls. It is an easy hike but you must wear good shoes as the terrain is uneven. The water can be great now in May as it has rained a lot. However, it could also be a lunar... More

There are all kinds of creeks, falls and trails to explore! We went to Barton creek at land bridge and lost creek for bench falls! Both were wonderful! Great time!
