Hike: Walnut Creek Greenbelt

Weather: Humid, hot, low 90s

Hikers: Ian, Court, Biff, Riley

Length: 2.9 miles

 

This is one of the few trails in Austin we haven’t done yet.  It’s not really a trail, but a ton of intersecting loops.  Lots of mountain bikers at high speed.  Makes it interesting with off-leash dogs.

We got out somewhat early, about 9 or so and the heat was coming on, but luckily the trails are pretty shaded.  It was very crowded, but the pups did well.  Riley is my sister’s dog who we are dog-sitting while they are in Europe and she loves to hike and swim.

This park is right in the middle of north Austin and Walnut Creek runs through it.  There are some nice creek crossings and deep, shaded woods.  Aside from the traffic noise, you wouldn’t know you were in the middle of the city.

We wound around a few trails until the heat got to be too much and the dogs were ready to go.  They played in the water, so at least they stayed cool.
