Það sem verður gert

We'll meet at the trail head, do introductions and look at the map. Then, hike down onto the greenbelt and out-and-back for a total of about five miles. You'll stop to appreciate the scenery and I'll even show you a few of the wilderness survival skills I've learned from my training and my years of experience walking in the woods like:

How to identify poison ivy
How to tape a sprained ankle
How to pitch a dry tent in the rain
What goes into a basic hiking first aid kit
What are the two most useful pieces of gear nobody brings

If there is water on the greenbelt and it is not too still or too swift then you'll have the option to stop and bathe at a number of swimming holes. If there is no water on the greenbelt or if there is too much to swim in safely then I'll give the option of extending the hike an additional mile to leave you at the Barton Springs Municipal Pool on Barton Creek where you have free and fee based swimming options.

I'm a thrice re-certified Wilderness First Responder (WFR) through the Wilderness Medicine Institute (WMI) of the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). I've hiked 1000s of miles and climbed hundreds of mountains along the Appalachian and John Muir Trails in the US and cordillera volcánica of Mexico and Central America.

Staðsetning

Austin has such magnificent Nature! It's what brought me and keeps me here year after year!

You'll hike onto the Greenbelt surrounding (or surrounded by) the greater metropolitan Austin area - a city you can't hardly see for her trees.

We'll start at the Spyglass Trail Head, hike Southwest past Gus Fruh, then back again on different paths as much as possible, with the option to continue on to Barton Springs.

Ryan was a great guide. He was a walking encyclopedia, with information about Austin I wasn’t aware of, and I resided there 16 years. Great personality and very friendly.

Looking for active adventures in Austin? You found a right guy. Fit, eager to please, attentive and knowledgeable. Did city biking and Green Belt hiking. Both were amazing

I was in Austin for a week and signed up for this experience as well as the bike tour that Ryan offers. This walk was great! I was a little hesitant at first because I was the only person signed up for the day but I'm very happy that I went through with it! Ryan was a great person. I had never gone on a hike before and Ryan was very accommodating to that. He matched my pace and slowed down when needed. He was very knowledgeable about Austin and hiking in general, so that was super helpful to me. He taught me the basic things to know for future hikes (what to bring, how to set up a tent, etc) which is something that I was hoping to learn from this experience and happy that I did. The entire experience was very pleasant and I felt safe and comfortable throughout. Highly recommend!

I really enjoyed this trail walking experience with Ryan. He is an interesting and interested host who was very well prepared and happy to share from his extensive experience. The area around the green belt is just beautiful and this introductory visit has left me keen to return. Ryan also shared lots of his experience and tips on Austin more generally - which was appreciated. I booked this experience as a way to get to know this incredible resource that is right on our doorstep here in Austin. It certainly delivered on that expectation and I now feel more confident to get out there and try more trails myself.

Hiking the Greenbelt with Ryan was a wonderful experience. Ryan is an expert in hiking through the Greenbelt trail and he also has an immense amount of knowledge in different topics, so our chats were very informative.

Ryan was knowledgeable and friendly and we enjoyed the trail hike. He gave us information about the local nature and about the Austin scene that was useful for us as tourists. Had a great time!
