Where else can you go to get completely away from urban life without leaving the city? Less citified than Town Lake's hike-and-bike routes, Austin's greenbelt defines nature: no pavement, no restrooms, no lights. Just 7.5 miles of grassy trails, rock formations, and endless beauty. Don't forget your water bottle.
