Living in a community of South Congress apartments means living near incredible outdoor activity destinations like Town Lake, Zilker Park and the Barton Creek Greenbelt. Those are three of the more well-known Austin outdoor spaces, but there are dozens more hiding in plain sight. We love living here and exploring the great outdoors, which is why we’re so excited to talk about two of our favorite outdoor activities in this week’s blog post!
Below, you’ll find info on two of our favorite outdoor activities in Austin. Now that the weather has cooled down, it’s easier than ever to find motivation to get outside. We understand why you’d want to stay in your air conditioned apartment all summer long, but you can no longer use the sweltering heat as an excuse. So, grab your four-legged friend, throw on some hiking boots and check out some of the outdoor activities on the list below! Oh, and when you’re done reading through this post, please be sure to share the link to this page with your friends and neighbors at The Muse — the South Congress apartments Austin residents choose for upscale living in the heart of the city.
Hike from Zilker to Spyglass for breakfast tacos
One of the best ways to kick off a Saturday in Austin is to make the 1.5 mile hike from Barton Springs Pool to the TacoDeli outside the Spyglass Greenbelt entrance. The trail starts out relatively clear and easy, offering a sun-filled walk into the heart of the Greenbelt. Once you head into the forested area, the trail gets a bit more rocky as it follows the creek. When the weather is dry, you can walk in the actual creekbed for the last half mile to the Spyglass entrance. Enjoy your hike and enjoy the tacos, residents!
Camp in cooler weather at Krause Springs
In the rest of the country, people camp during the summer months. Down here in Texas, we save the camping trips for late fall and winter. It’s hard to sleep when you’re hot, but it’s easy to enjoy a weekend of camping when you can enjoy 60-degree weather at Krause Springs. Located just outside of town, Krause Springs is a privately owned campsite and swimming hole that offers gorgeous creekside camping set ups. Next time you’re sure the weekend won’t bring rain, make plans to check this place out!
