Miles Hiked: 4.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: N/A

Comments: The Barton Creek Greenbelt is a refreshing retreat from the rush of the city. Though it is surrounded on all sides by major roadways, and development is constantly encroaching, the Greenbelt is always enjoyable. Something that is extra pleasing this time of year is the maple leaves changing color along the creek. It seems likely they have been brought down stream from another location, due to the fact that they are concentrated on the edge of the creekbed. Regardless, one should enjoy them while you can.
