Walnut Creek Greenbelt (2611 Park Bend Drive) is a large (975 acres!) tract of land that connects Walnut Creek Metro Park and Balcones District Park. There is now a nice paved trail through this greenbelt that is a really good place to run or cycle. One can park at the St. David’s Hospital Lot G and cross over towards the tree line to find the path at this address; there aren’t any signs at this end. Several other runners and cyclists were utilizing the trail yesterday morning when I visited. The area is heavily wooded surrounding the trail; visually it feels secluded even though you can hear a bit of traffic noise from MoPac still. Several bridges cross over the creek and provide some nice scenery. Other than the trail, there are no other facilities so you’ll want to bring in water and other needs. This place is worth the trip for sure.
