Trail shared by Donovan Acker

A beautiful singletrack wooded trail winding towards the Hurst Creek outlet into Lake Travis.

Features River/Creek · Views · Wildflowers · Wildlife

Definitely wear trail runners or light hikers. There is lots of fun, root-strewn, and rocky scrambling on this trail.

Description

This trail is distinctly more technical and requires more skill than the easier Hamilton Greenbelt I Trail & Hamilton Greenbelt II Trail that lead into the area.

Flora & Fauna

There's lots of deer in this area. Don't be surprised if you come on a few bucks along this trail.

The trail opens up for a nice view of the hollow and Lake Travis just before the ascent to the final loop trail.

The stone sitting bench is a nice spot to take a pic and hang out for while under the shade

This is nice spot to have a nice quiet lunch under the shade of the trail looking out at outlet into Lake Travis.

This guy and his buddies are a pretty common sight on these deeper trails into the hollow.
