Location: Barton Creek - Upper South

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 5.50 Miles  Elapsed Time: N/A

Comments: Going on this side is soooo much better. Right now the creek is full (really full) in this area of the greenbelt, so it is nice to take in the falls. Sure you can hear people on the other side, but most of the time they don't even know you are there. It was threatening rain so that thinned out the masses. However, it got to a nice 68F with only a few sprinkles. I highly recommend this side and area of the greenbelt for its solitude and lack of bike riders. You can't quite make it all the way to sculpture falls but close enough. BTW, north of Mopac is nice area to walk barefoot.
