What you'll do

First, we will meet at Wheatsville Food Coop- the only full service, natural foods cooperative grocery store in Texas, where we can purchase food and drinks before heading out. **Please make sure you’re heading to the correct Wheatsville location at 4001 S Lamar, and to arrive early so that we may leave on time.** Then we'll head out to one of the trail heads where we'll start on foot - but don't worry, it's almost all flat. We will lead you through the beautiful nature trails that will eventually bring you to the natural swimming hole that only locals know about.
Other things to note
Note: we will be treading through small creeks in order to arrive at the swimming hole. Be prepared, you will get wet. Shoes intended for water are highly recommended.

Hi y’all! My name is Ryan; I’ve been in Austin for several years now and have arguably spent more time around Austin’s greenbelts than most native residents. Being outside in nature, especially with my sweet shepherd Samantha, is one of my favorite pastimes. While I’m off exploring the trails on my own, I like to mix it up with different levels of difficulty as well as going for leisure with a few cold brews. Other times I like to test my endurance and run the hills. There are many different areas to explore around Austin’s Greenbelts; I’ve taken it upon myself to seek out the best of them and look forward to showing you all they have to offer! Depending on my schedule, I may have a co-host fill in and take you on the tour. His name is John and loves the outdoors!

Where you'll be

Our destination will be an area(s) located inside one of Austin’s many greenbelts. We will take a leisurely hike through the dense forest and through a few streams (remember to wear shoes suitable for trekking through water) before arriving to a local watering hole perfect for jumping in, swimming or tossing a ball, all while taking in the gorgeous surroundings of the limestone cliffs, lush forest and waterfalls!

Our host warned us that they might not be water on the Greenbelts because of lack of rain. We still wanted to check it out and he also had a back up plan to go to Barton springs just Incase. We ended up going to both and had a lot of fun! Ryan was very friendly, easy going and made an effort to make sure we had a great time!!

Ryan took us to a cool spot that wasn’t crowded. There were some locals there, which shows that it’s not overrun on a regular basis like some other places. I also left my phone in his truck and he went out of his way to bring it back to me the next day, which really helped me out. Book this experience!

Ryan was a great host. It was 100+ and he led us to here at swimming spot with rope wounds and running water without the crowds. Really felt like a local!

We did this experience for a bachelorette trip. Ryan did a great job leading us on a short guided to a beautiful natural swimming area that wasn’t over crowded. It was great for a visitor to Austin who doesn’t know the best hiking or natural swimming areas. Definitely recommend!
