5 Must Visit Greenbelt and Hiking Trails in Austin

Real Estate

Spyglass Access, 1601 Spyglass Drive ~ If you like tacos and hiking, this is a great place to enter the greenbelt to explore since Taco Deli is at the entry and the parking is ample.

Trail Head Access, 2201 Barton Springs Road ~ Considered the trail head of the Barton Creek Greenbelt, this hike is ideal for beginners and those looking for a low-impact hike. Paid parking is available in and around Zilker Park, but it is busy on the weekends.

Barton Hills Access, 2010 Homedale Drive ~ To go to Campbell’s Hole from the east side of Barton Creek, you can access the trail at Barton Hills Elementary School. Since the street parking is located in a residential neighborhood, please be considerate to those who live in the neighborhood. Head north to arrive at Campbell’s Hole.

Loop 360 Access, 3755-B Capital of Texas Hwy (Loop 360) ~ While this is a fairly easy hiking trail, you will notice more mountain bikers, since from here the terrain has more variation than some other trails in Austin. This is the main access point for the popular climbing wall, Seismic.

Trails End, 1710 Camp Craft Road ~ This trail is the home of the famous Hill of Life and Sculpture Falls, another well-known Austin swimming hole. The Hill of Life is challenging half-mile downhill or uphill hike, depending on the direction you’re going. This is a nice challenge for trail runners and mountain bikers alike. There are additional trails to explore and it’s typically less crowded than many others in the area.

Happy Trails to you with Love from Austin!
