If you’re new to Austin, you’ve probably heard someone say they hiked or biked “the greenbelt” and thought it sounded pretty beautiful, only to look up Austin greenbelt and discover that every park in this city is called a greenbelt.
Allow us to help you out. Your non-specific friend was probably referring to the Barton Creek Greenbelt, a beloved (and massive) Austin fixture that follows Barton Creek south of Zilker Park. We could tell you about the lush spring greenery and the Central Texas wildlife, or you could just hop on your bike and check it out. We think you’ll prefer the latter.
