Barton Creek Greenbelt to Town Lake Hike & Bike to Shoal Creek Hike & Bike

The amount of green space running through the center of the city can, if connected properly through a little research and a little more sweat, get you most anywhere in central Austin without sucking fumes or absorbing road rage from impatient car commuters. The Barton Creek Greenbelt connects West Lake Hills to MoPac and 360 and feeds into the Town Lake Hike & Bike, which provides a great east-west corridor on both sides of the river, hooking up with the Johnson Creek Greenbelt near Clarksville and the Shoal Creek Hike & Bike that runs north practically to 45th Street - all with a scant few cars in sight.
