I followed the thirteen miles of inviting nature trails; lines of vines varnished with clusters of plump, lustrous berries that accompanied the border of limestone bluffs.
A local suggested Barton Creek spring shouldn’t be missed. The spring can be accessed through only four points, hidden within the depths of the surrounding neighbourhoods. Underneath the city lies the urban oasis that requires an intermediate hike through the shaded canopy of winding, rocky creek. The number of small springs along the trail is a remedy from the tropical, Texan sun that still manages to beam through the gaps in the leaves; heating the shrub to a level of humidity that bedews the entire route.
The heated waters attract a generous number of visitors, still maintaining a calm, undisturbed atmosphere. Large boulders, shaped by cloudless waters frame the circumference of the spring. The tall canopy of Spanish oaks surround the baths and compliment the limestone bluffs as a moderate flow of fresh water defuses through the breaks in the rock.
