Best Turtle Nest

Barton Creek Inlet

If you're on the south side of the Hike & Bike Trail and you cross the bridge over the inlet which leads to Barton Springs, look down and to the south and you will see a diaspora of underwater greenery which provides a nice gathering spot for the creek's turtle population when canoe and kayak traffic is at a lull. Don't see them there? Then get yourself into one of those canoes or kayaks and take to the water. Go slow and nestle up against the shore. You'll see them.
