Austin Outdoor Parks and Trails | Barton Creek Greenbelt, Barton Springs, Zilker Park

We start to explore all the outdoor adventures Austin, TX has to offer! First stop is Barton Creek Greenbelt which at first looks to be an easy hike, but looks can sometimes be deceiving. We got lost. When you think of a Natural Spring, you don’t expect the type of setup they have at Barton Springs Pool. Around 800,000 people visit the natural spring every year. Puppy adventure time! We bring the dogs out to Latta Branch Greenway for a hike. It was a perfect plan B. We only went to take some pictures but were pleasantly surprised to see so many people out and about enjoying themselves at Zilker Park. Hang with the dogs, have a catch, listen to some music, ride the bike trial or do some kayaking. Zilker Park has it all. Our last stop was not far from our RV Park. Walter E. Long Lake is a beautiful place to catch a sunset!
