This is a long, loopy series of trails along the beloved Barton Creek. The Greenbelt has many access points (most popular along the 360 parking area where the creek crosses), but please don't be a pain in neighborhood access areas. The trail is very rugged in parts. Take plenty of water. During rainy periods, the creek generally has water (closer... More

There are many different entrances to this park, I used the 3755 Texas 360 Loop. It looks like you're driving into an industrial building at first, but there's a decent amount of parking and it takes you to the trailhead. We went in early September, so there was still plenty of water in the creek. There's 7.9 miles total, but... More

I'm an Austin native... I use to love walking at the greenbelt but in the past 5 years or so, it has gotten super crowded and people don't follow Austin dog leash laws. There is a lot of dog poop and there are a lot of full poop bags waiting for the poop fairy to pick them up. Austin needs... More

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!
