Hike: Greenbelt – Zilker to almost 360, Austin, TX
Weather: sunny, clear, hot, low-mid 90s
Hikers: Ian, Court
Length: 7.51 miles
Court and I repeated most of the track that I did a couple of weeks ago and hit Barton Springs again afterward. It was a lot hotter today than when I did this hike solo and there were a ton of bikers.
We got out on trail again around 8am and Court started us off at a brisk pace. The temperature rose pretty quickly and the humidity made it a bit rough at times. But that just made the springs at the end that much better. It took a few minutes for Court to work up the courage to jump in the water, but she finally got in. Barton Springs is an amazing way to end a hike. I think I’m going to take a break from the Greenbelt for a few weeks and check out some other area hikes. I’m going to try and do the full length of the Greenbelt at some point this fall, once the temperature goes down a bit.
We hit Doc’s afterward for lunch and it was a pretty amazing day. Yay Austin.
