Incredible scenic park in the urban Austin. Easy hike near water bodies where you can cool off. W/ many access points. A must go.

The greenbelt is awesome year round for hiking/trail running and mountain biking. Many people also walk their dogs here. It's dry for a good portion of the year, but if you go after it has rained a lot- there's the potential to go swimming too!...More

The trails are all in the shade, beautiful, peaceful and clean. Went in the morning when it wasn't so hot, tho there was no water (due to drought) until we got to Sculpture Falls it was still beautiful. We will definitely go again.

Absolutely. I didn't any picnic tables, so you'll need a blanket. There are many great places to set up a picnic. No garbage cans, so you'll need to haul out.
