Northwest Hills Greenbelt
Anyone for a hike? Austin is full of greenbelts and how sweet to have one in my own backyard. I live on what I consider the first hill of the hill country. If you take Steck west past Mesa, Steck ends at Adirondack. I live on that greenbelt which is actually a park called Steck Valley Park. No one really knows it is a park except the neighborhood as it is not marked and the trails are marginally established.
So today, a sunny 70 degree January day, we took a hike down through the greenbelt and followed it all the way to 360. We are in a draught in Austin but we were very happy to find some fresh water down there (a couple small active springs) to help out the wildlife.
Here a few shorty videos we shot on the hike:
