Location: Barton Creek - Upper North

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 7.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: N/A

Comments: I really enjoyed this hike because it seems everyone goes to the part of the trail by Zilker and ignores this section. I love that you can hike on side of the creek down the the other side back. There are also some nice little springs coming out of the cliffs on the side of the creek. Great swimming too. The hill going into and out of the valley is an intense thing if you are tired so save your energy for the hike out.
