Barton Creek Greenbelt, Austin

The Greenbelt is a mostly shaded trail running 7 miles from the trailhead next to Barton Springs Pool in Zilker Park. Though the trail is primarily mountain biking, there are plenty of runners and hikers. The main trail is marked every 0.25 miles and several exits/entries exist along the way. There are a few creek crossings, so when it's raining be prepared to get the shoes wet. The trail can get rocky in several areas so be prepared. The Greenbelt is also close to the Town Lake Hike and Bike Trail.
