The Barton Creek Trail is a jewel of Austin’s extensive park system. The 7.5 mile long (one way) trail is isolated from nearby urban Austin as it follows Barton Creek next to cliff faces (popular with rock climbers), and through wooded and rocky areas. It is a busy, multi-use trail shared with mountain bikers (although we will follow portions of the trail that are off-limits to bikes). The trail is moderately difficult. Depending on weather conditions, water crossings and traversing slippery, muddy areas, narrow ledges, and rock fields may be necessary.
