Hiking in the Upper Barton Creek Greenbelt

I think I am going to live so I am putting this hike back on our calendar. I want to share one of my favorite walks behind my house. I am not sure how long it is, but it takes me about an hour and a half at a moderate pace. Longer with breaks. This walk will take us through some meadows, but will mostly be in the woods that run in and around the canyons. It is possible that we will not see anybody on this hike; it is pretty remote. If everybody wanted to go down to Barton Creek, add another hour to our adventure; otherwise we will just be hiking in the greenbelt.

Please remember to dress appropriately. This should include wearing sturdy shoes as quite a bit of our trail will be over rocks with some up and down as we will be skirting and crossing canyons. And of course bring water.

Afterwards we can order pizza from Pizza Nizza if you like. (I am) . And there are still a few jello shots in my fridge.

      What number do you want to set as your limit?

    • dennis l l.

      hikes get unwieldy beyond 10, but I'll go with 20 as you did for this event.

    jeffrey, i don't know what a "suggested meetup" is. i made this offer because of the number of people on your wait list wanting to hike the bcgb.

      Near the top central part of your screen is a link that says Suggest A Meetup. Once you click on it, you just put in the info requested. Then when 2 people sign up, it gets put on our calendar. It looks like you may have quite a bit more than that who want to hike with you.

      Dennis, I'd like to go but I don't know that I can RSVP soon enough. If you want to add me (+1) when/if you suggest the meetup, you'll only need one other person before it becomes "real". Thanks!

    i live in travis country a mile from jeffrey. i hike and/or mtn bike the barton creek green belt trails every day, rain or shine. if there is interest i can host a second hike on[masked] or any other time.

    for this hike we will start at a trail head going down to the creek, along the main trail, up and around to the upper tc trails and then back to my place. this route is a combo of technical sections and smooth trail. it is predominantly shaded with 1 climb. count on about 2 hrs or longer if requested.

    appropriate dress and preparation are very important. i don't have any jello shots and have never heard of pizza nizza. i do have other goodies and a phone book!!

      I'd be interested in exploring that neck of the woods, too.

      Dennis, Why don't you make this into a Suggested Meetup? Let me know if you want to do that and have any questions.

    This is an event I'd love to join, but I'll be teaching a class in Marble Falls until 2:00pm. Will you be meeting up somewhere after the hike?

    December 30, 2012

    • jeffrey s.

      No definite plans, Dee, other than maybe ordering some pizza after the hike.

    Jeffery I'll still be in Orlando Fl on that date but returning from holiday that week... I'd like to experience that hike sometime... One of my NewYears objectives will be hiking more and enjoying Austin and new friends ... So I'll be looking out for more invites... And yes we need to live more! Take care!
