Elm waterhole is a great place to smim. Nice clear fresh water. I take the family there a few times during the summer for picnics and camping. Says Greg
The Loop 360 to Zilker Park sector is a great 4-mile-in-length grade III section of whitewater on Barton Creek. You might get soaked kayak paddling this section of Barton Creek, so you should be set for that. Nearby you encounter the Lost Creek to Loop 360 section, a grade III sweep of whitewater.
It's a good 5-mile-from-beginning-to-end sweep on Barton Creek. Donít rely on continuing to be dry whitewater paddling this sweep of Barton Creek in the event that you're not an expert whitewater paddler.
