Best Bike Ride And Day Hike

Barton Creek Greenbelt

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.
