We will start from Barton Springs and car pool half the cars up to Scottish Woods Trail - to hike the entire length of Barton Creek - but only one way, then drive folks up to their cars at Scottish Woods.
- We will try to leave Barton Springs by car at 7:45 AM, and try to leave the Scottish Woods trailhead by 8 am. The hike is estimated to be about 3-3.5 hours, but we go the pace the group sets and sometimes estimates are wrong, shouldn't be much more than that - could be less.
From either Mopac or South Lamar get on Barton Springs Rd - heading toward Barton Springs. From Barton Spring Rd, turn south into Barton Springs Park on William Barton Dr., stay on William Barton Dr. by bearing left at the fork, you should then see the Barton Springs bath house on your left. Continue to the end of the parking lot spaces past Zilker Theater on your right and park. If you turn right past the theater you have gone too far.
Wear good shoes, waterproof if convenient, because we may try to cross if the water is low enough somewhere. Bring water, dogs are welcome, may also need water for dogs for some parts of the trail. Although unicorns are rare on the trail this time of year (Stokie likes to chase them), I'm hoping to see one.
Try to be on time, as we tend to leave on time unless you call and are running late. If you are a little late, please call my cell and we will wait for you. Also people will ask if they can meet at Scottish Woods - sure, but no guarantee anyone will have a ride for you back... probably.
