Best Day Hike

Barton Creek Greenbelt

The Greenbelt may be one of our last connections with the natural plant and animal life of Austin. Sure, we have parks, but the Greenbelt provides an outdoor experience that is a little more rugged but not quite a total wilderness immersion. A hike (or a bike ride) around the Greenbelt can be as exciting as you want it to be and always yields a new surprise.
