    what entrances does everyone take to get into the greenbelt? I've been using the one close to Southwest parkway but it gets pretty rocky.... which is awesome

    I always enter at the Zilker Pool parking lot so I can go swimming after a good ride but most everyone else I know starts at the MoPac 360 parking lot.

    When I come in from out of town, I always park at Zilker for convenience, then my local buds meet me there. Our route is usually a basic to Hill of Life and back with some side stuff mixed in sometimes. If you're local, you already know this, but I think the GB can be confusing to a newcomer and it really helps to have a guide along to get the most out of it.

    Usually at the pump house in Travis Country. Sometimes Spyglass, sometimes 360 parking lot

    I use the entrances off of Mopac & 360...it's convenient for me since I live on that side of town.

    I recently moved to Round Rock, TX from Wash. DC, where are the best trails in the area?

    Brett,

    Check out the Austin ridge rider's website Area Trails and Conditions | Austin Ridge Riders for information on all the local trails. I think the trail nearest you is walnut creek, which is a pretty nice one.

    He doesn't know anything.

    But...if you are in most parts of Austin, you are best to drop in at the loop 360 entrance (3755 S. Captial of Texas Highway).

    You can drop in at Zilker or spyglass, but, realistically, the trail from Zilker to the loop 360 entrance is pretty crappy. You can start at 360 and head downstream to hit ******** and ******** then turn around and head upstream from there. Both the north side and the south side have lots to choose from 95% of the good stuff is upstream from 360, so that is the best place.

    If you live SW you can drop in at moonshadow/regents and you are midway through the good stuff on the south side.

    If you live west, dropping in at scottish woods is the top of the hill of life and you are about halfway through most of the north side stuff.

    Allegedly.

    I could have sworn I read something awhile back about a spot on the greenbelt where a trail kicked out really close to a good spot to grab a cold beer. Was this just wishful thinking on my part? Can't seem to find where I saw that listed...
