Green Belt: Sculpture Falls

I have been dying to visit Sculpture Falls!! I've been seeing posts on Instagram and it just looked so relaxing!! Neil and I both had the day off so we decided to take a mini-adventure to find the falls. We drove to 1710 Camp Croft Rd Austin, Texas (The Scottish Woods Trail which leads to the Greenbelt Trail).  When you first enter the park make sure you take a good look at the map (we got a little lost). The trail will go almost straight all of the way down to the water where you'll come to an intersection. If you go straight you'll find this beautiful area:

There are even some fun rope swings:

If you want to go to Sculpture Falls then turn left at the intersection instead of going straight. This path will lead you along the water. There are lots of areas to hop in the nice cool water along the way.  After you pass mile marker 6.25 you'll start looking for the falls. There will be a small sign pointing to the falls (same size as the mile maker signs). 

Bam...after a 1.5 mile hike you're there!! 

We finally made it!!

Don't forget to save some water/energy for the hike back up! It might be downhill on your way to the falls, but that means it's uphill when you're headed home.
