Location: Barton Creek - Upper North

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 8.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: 5 hours


The notes about lots of bikes weren't kidding.  We went on a cloudy, humid Sunday morning and there were lots of bikers.  Most were curtious, only saw a couple going really fast.  What was interesting about the bikers, we pulled off the trail for 5 unicyclers!  That was a sight.  We took the trail from the "hill of life" which was difficult on the return of walking over 4 hours.  We found the ther trailheads and parking areas off Mopac and 360, which we'll do next time to finish off the trail (the first 3 miles).  This upper part is the last part of the trail, as we found a few of the mile markers.  We found a lot of dry creekbed mostly this part of the trail (April 27,2009).  So, if you want to get wet, do it soon after ending the "hill of life".
