For people who live in Austin, this place is amazing. It is close access to everyday nature and hiking. It is, however, Texas, not the Colorado Rockies, so manage your expectations and enjoy this slice of heaven right here in our own backyard. But maybe do it in the winter rather than when it is 100 degrees with a bone... More

Stunning view of the hills as you drive along winding roads that reminds me of driving in the Hollywood Hills in CA or Monte Carlo in Europe. Inexpensive way to see the beauty and nature of this exciting city all from the seat of your car! It's a don't-miss!

This is one of the special gems that make Austin great. This greenbelt goes through most of austin and has a bit of everything. Some easy trails for casual hikers, some rough terrain for those intense mountain bikers and hikers, several rock climbing spots, and the creak which has several swimming holes if there has been rain lately. The trails... More

Even though the greenbelt is getting quite crowded, it is still worth taking a long walk on any of the greenbelt's many trails. Beauty and dogs abound, so get out there and enjoy this piece of heaven in our beautifully green city!

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.
