Sculpture Falls Sunrise 5

Barton Creek

Sculpture Falls is about a 1.5 mile walk from the trailhead on the service road along Highway 1 near downtown Austin, Texas. It is hard to believe this beautiful area is so close to the high rises of the city, but here in the Barton Creek Greenbelt, clear, cool water flows over limestone, eventually making its way to Lady Bird Lake. Often at sunrise you’ll have the oasis to yourself, but quickly the trails fill up with bicyclers, hikers, and many folks out to enjoy a dip in the cool waters on a hot summer day.
