Hiked from the bottom parking lot to the uppermost parking lot and back. 7,674 steps counted by my ipod. 8:39am-9:56 am.
Hiked through the St. Edwards Hill trail, through the preserve, to the preserve trailhead (as marked on here), through to the other side and along Whisper Ridge Drive (?) for about 1.2 miles. Then we turned around and retraced our steps. We only saw one other group (of 3) along the whole way - probably because Texas football was playing at the time!
My wife and I had been working out for weeks prior to an international trip - for which we wanted to be in excellent shape. So, we packed up our backpacks (about 15 lbs each, but getting lighter as we drank water) and headed out for the toughest trail we have been on here in Austin. We pushed ourselves through the heat and made it through it in a respectable time.
4.5-mile hike on the Bull Creek Greenbelt this morning with a 10 (down to 3) pound pack. Duration 1:19 (10:26 am - 11:45 am)
Guided hike through Bright Leaf Preserve during an open house. No real soltude due to the group setting (the only way that you are allowed to hike through the preserve)
