After going to visit Austin for so many years, my family and I finally made it out to Barton Creek last Saturday morning and it was perfect. It's hard to believe that such beauty stills exists in the middle of a buzzing city! We walked around for about an hour and loved every minute of it. Although the river seems... More

My wife and I hiked this with our daughter and her boyfriend who frequent the trails/swimming quite often. The trail we accessed was quite steep for about a half mile but then flattens nicely and is very lovely. We ended up in an area with lots of people and nice swimming area. Lots of dogs though and none were on... More

Went w/ some friends for a mid morning hike - place is tucked away nicely off the highway and huge. Lots of trails and river spots to walk through - beautiful water and surrounding area.

We visited Barton Creek at Greenbelt at the recommendation of our Airbnb hosts. This was the perfect sit for a relaxing day in the heat. The water was perfect to cool off in and the creek was a nice place to relax. Highly recommend grabbing some Tacodeli from the food truck before you head down for a little hike and... More

During the Summer this track can get pretty busy but it is a spot you can spend the day. We brought a picnic and swimsuit because the water was great to cool down after a long hike. Perfect spot for families and couples.

Who knew fun can be free. My family of four enjoyed this water filled fun Friday morning. We gps'd the Spyglass entry point and was able to park free on the street alongside some apartments. We walked right into the park area and wah-lah right up to the flowing creek. It is pretty cold water which seems to me must... More

Barton Creek is a beautiful location to cool off and beat the infamous Texas heat. Rent a kayak and go kayaking in the crystal clear waters of Barton Creek and watch the fish swim under neath you. This is a great spot for swimming and snorkeling as well.

We arrived at 10:30am not knowing what to expect. Started our day at the trailhead and passed on the first set of waterfalls. It was filled with hikers and their pups, so stop here if that is your scene. We walked onto the next set of waterfalls, sculpture falls. That is about a 45 minute hike from the trailhead if...

Nice area for a hike along the Colorado. The river was high when we were there so there was good sounds of water to hear. Not the best maintained trail...quite wet/muddy almost impassible in areas. And not well marked. Used to better marked trails...got off trail 2-3 times in the 3 h hike. But was peaceful and enjoyable. One small... More

What a beautiful way to hike Austin. Trails are easy for the most part, with a few rocky, steep areas. It is a dirt trail, so be prepared for mud after a rain. There can also be flooding issues after heavy rains. Wooden bridges and rails can be washed out at times. It also pays to watch for warnings on... More
