Checking this out. Hiking for the Hill Country Conservancy.
The HCC “Hike the Half” team is similar to other non-profit charity running teams, the only difference is instead of running, we ask team members to train by hiking around Austin! While HCC is primarily a land and water conservation organization, we are working on the extension of the Barton Creek Greenbelt to Kyle- a 30 mile trail, which will provide public access to conserved lands over the Barton Springs recharge zone! The proposed trail will be a perfect path for training for future half and full marathon hikes!
