BringFido Traveler Rating

Barton Creek Greenbelt Preserve has received a rating of 3.8 out of 5 bones by 4 dog owners on BringFido.

  • More than one year ago.
    Police now troll the greenbelt.

    Looks like the speedy biker has his way. 80% of dogs are off leash in this park. If you need to bike that fast please find another trail. This trail is full of local residents who enjoy the park with their pets, swim, and rock climb.

    NO OFF-LEASH Pkease

    As the entire Greenbelt is with the city limits, there is NO AREA OFF-LEASH anywhere within the park.
    Because some other dog owner has the hubris to run Fido off-leash should not give license to the rest of us.
    There are many bikers riding at speeds that will crush a small dog. If an accident were to occur, it is all but assured your off-leash actions will lay all the liability upon your shoulders.

    And can we all please carry out Fido's poop with us rather than leaving bagged alng the trail to 'pick up on return. This best of intentions is not always borne out

    Great park- but contrary to the other reviewer, please note that NO parts of this park allow off-leash dogs! Your dogs are welcome on leash.

    Good Hiking and Easy Access

    This is a great shady hike to do with your dog that is very accessible from most parts of Austin. There are multiple access points along 360 and Mopac: the trail is quite long. Remeber to bring water if it has been dry recently since the creek will get bone dry.

    Also remember that your dog needs to stay on leash for the majority of the trail. However, you can find off-leash areas near some of the waterfalls. You'll know you're at one of them because you'll hear the water and probably get a greeting from someone else running around off-leash.
