This Featured Ride routes you through all the highlights and different terrains the greenbelt has to offer. You'll see waterfalls, make multiple creek crossings (in wet times), and get great views of Lake Travis at the far end of the route.
Need to Know
60 to 70% of this ride has all-day shade. Most of the sun exposure is on the first and last bit of the ride along Hamilton Greenbelt I & II Trails.
The Hamilton Greenbelt I Trail will meet up with the Hurst Hollow Connector. At that point, you'll be moving onto wooded singletrack trails for the next couple miles.
Following the Hurst Hollow Trail and Hurst Hollow Loop Trail, you'll have a chance to see some great views of Hurst Creek, Hurst Hollow, and Lake Travis.
On the return portion of the ride, you'll come back through the heart of the 'primitive' trails area via Hurst Hollow Trail, Squires Trail, Clubhouse Trail, and Palos Verdes Trail. Some nice out-of-the-way picnic areas and 'hang out' spots are located in here.
After that, you'll be on Hamilton Greenbelt II Trail and an easier gravel road that follows Yaupon Creek for a while before connecting back to Hamilton Greenbelt I Trail for the remainder of the ride back to your car.
