Hike: Greenbelt – Spyglass Trail Head, Austin, TX
Weather: rainy, humid, mid 70s
Hikers: Ian, Court, Zack
Length: 2.62 miles
My buddy Zack is in town from Pittsburgh for the summer and we met up with him at Magnolia Cafe on South Congress for breakfast and decided to hit the Greenbelt for a bit. It continues to rain here in central Texas so the creeks are all really high, but the Greenbelt is still hikeable for the moment.
We started at the Spyglass Trail Head off of Barton Skyway, which is the first time I have gone that way. The trail was very rocky, as usual, and the water was flowing really high and fast, but we did find a calmer area with a rope swing and all got in for a swim.
It was a short, but fun hike and the water was probably the highest I’ve ever seen it in my life. Great morning.
A couple of me on the rope swing that Zack shot.
Nice trip report, looks beautiful!
