This 6 mile out-and-back 3 1/4-hour exploring hike starts at 360 Twin Falls Trail head and follows a less-used Barton Greenbelt trail to Twin and Sculpture Falls and beyond. This week's hike will be at an exploring pace. "Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by. " This is one of my favorite hikes. It is challenging, but not dangerous; mysterious yet approachable. Be on time. We will leave promptly at 8:05 am. This is for a small group of fun people (who like to hike). This is for experienced hikers who already have good conditioning and balance, and who enjoy trails with rocky, uneven terrain. Wear hiking shoes. Bring water, a snack, and your camera. No dogs or koalas please. RSVP only if you will definitely attend. Attendance will be tracked, and habitual no-shows will be removed from future events. Bring at least 2 liters of water to survive the summer heat. Notes on how to find: This entrance is tricky. From Capital of Texas Highway, turn as if you’re heading south on Mopac. But instead of taking the on-ramp, remain on the frontage road. Just past the ramp, you’ll find the Barton Creek Greenbelt Twin Falls access point. Look for parked cars on the right side of the road, and you’ll find the entrance near the U-turn. There is no parking lot, which is why it’s tricky. Be careful of traffic when walking along the road. Don't leave visible valuables in your car, lock everything in you trunk. Here is a map: http://austinparks.org/parks/barton-creek-greenbelt-east-loop-360-access/ All hikers must sign a liability release/waiver at the trailhead. This hike is cross-posted and will have 10 other hikers. ### Please consider becoming a member of the Sierra Club if you are not already.
