Thanks to a generous donation from Jack and Myrtle Hamilton, the Hamilton Greenbelt opened in April 1990. Several improvements and additions over the years have resulted in a first class trail network. Thanks to the donation of additional land and funds from Coleman and Mary Smith, an easement from the Lakeway Municipal Utilities District and countless hours of volunteer services from Friends of the Parks, the Hamilton Greenbelt trail network, including Smith Greenbelt and Hurst Creek Preserve, now offers several miles of both developed and primitive trails that wander along Hurst and Yaupon Creeks. These areas are fabulous places for family outings, walks and jogs or a bike ride.
The two main trailheads provide parking. The entrance off of Lohmans Crossing at Cross Creek (across from the Justice Center) leads you to Hamilton Greenbelt I. The entrance off of Palos Verdes Drive leads you to Hamilton Greenbelt II. Other access points include trailheads off Sailmaster Street, Squires Drive and Clubhouse Drive.
Hamilton Greenbelt I-
Chapel of the Four Seasons
Near the front entrance of the Hamilton Greenbelt Trail I (off of Lohmans Crossing), visitors will find a lovely garden area with a fountain. Volunteers from the Garden Club spend countless hours each year to maintain the landscaping in this area and it makes for a lovely setting for the Chapel of the Four Seasons. Suitable for groups of 25 people or less, the chapel has been used in the past for weddings. Please call the Lakeway Activity Center at (512)261-1010 for availability.
