This popular out-and-back trail is roughly 13 miles long, and winds through some of the most beautiful scenery in central Texas. There are multiple access points along the trail, with the closest just 10 minutes away at Loop 360, where you’ll find plenty of parking. From there, you’ll have access to a veritable outdoor playground that will allow you to stay active and reap the physical and mental benefits of regular exercise and fresh air.
Whether you’re looking for a day hike, birdwatching, a leisurely stroll, or mountain biking, you’ll find it here. If you’re feeling adventurous, try your hand at climbing the majestic limestone bluffs or explore one of the caves that dot the trail (after all, age is just a number, right?). And if you work up a sweat in the scorching summer heat, go for a dip in one of the swimming holes – when there’s enough water. The best part? Your four-legged companions are welcome too, just like they are at our apartments near the Barton Creek Greenbelt Trail.
After spending time in the great outdoors in the spring, summer or, fall, don’t head straight home. Consider making a detour to stop by the Congress Avenue Bridge in downtown Austin. Time your arrival for dusk and watch as 1.5 million bats emerge from under the bridge and take to the sky in a nightly spectacle of nature that is truly a sight to behold!
