Barton Creek Greenbelt is a staple in South Austin and many natives flock to this watering hole in the summer months. Do512 did the work for us and found the most popular and convenient spaces to enjoy the beautiful Austin weather. Here is a list of the various locations to help you get out and enjoy the Greenbelt.
Spyglass Access - 1601 Spyglass Dr.
This is an extremely popular location as it is located right behind Tacodeli. It even features a fairly new entrance! There is also usually easy street parking at this location. Once you head down the hill at the trail access, take a left and you’ll find your way to the Flats & the Campbell’s Hole swimming spot. Click here for a map.
Barton Hills/ Homedale Access - 2010 Homedale Dr.
You can also reach Campbell’s Hole from an access point at Barton Hills Elementary. Parking here is on the street in a residential neighborhood. Once you enter the trail, head north for Campbell’s Hole. Click here for a map.
Gus Fruh Access - 2642 Barton Hills Dr.
Here are some directions from TexasOutside.com: From I-35 exit on Riverside and head west. Drive 1.5 miles to Barton Creek Rd and turn left (west). Drive about one mile past the Lamar intersection and turn left on Robert E Lee Rd. Take the first right on Barton Hills Dr. Continue down Barton Hills for exactly 2 miles....

One major driving force we use to push ourselves to be successful as a team is our non-profit, Cain Cares. With every home sale, we are able to make a donation to our non-profit in the homeowner's name. Cain Cares gives us the ability to serve our clients, past clients, neighbors and team members in a time of need. Our goal is to help when help is needed most, and that is exactly what we had the pleasure of doing this past month.
For our 1st Annual Love Where You Live Event we had the pleasure of serving the Feil family. Marvin and Melba Feil have been Travis Country residents for over 40 years. They have found a great sense of community within Travis Country and have made a ton of memories in their house. With a great amount of work put on Melba as the main home keeper, their beautiful home needed quite a bit of extra love and attention. This is when we stepped in to truly return their house back into a home.
With the help of our amazing sponsors and team, we set out early Saturday morning on April 7th, 2018 to go to work on the Feil's family home. With 5 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren, and one great-granddaughter making memories in this house, it definitely needed to be brought back to its full potential.
A few gallons of paint, new flooring, leaky roof repairs, and brand new fence later we had the opportunity to welcome Marvin and Melba into their new and improved home! Seeing the amount of gratitude on their faces is exactly why we do what we do. This is what Cain Cares is all about, lending a helping hand when it is needed the most.
We are so grateful to have been a part of Melba and Marvin's journey, and even more grateful for the donations and sponsors that allowed us to do so. A special thank you to Goosehead Insurance,...

The annual Keller Williams Citywide food drive has once again proven itself a success in reaching out to the people of Central Texas. So far this year's event has produced over 11,000 meals for Central Texas families in need, and we are still counting! With combined efforts of both traditional and virtual efforts, KW agents and staff dedicated their time to make this annual event a wonderful success.
The food drive is an effort of Keller Williams Austin with a goal to extend its culture of giving in the communities that it serves. Our very own Cain Team participated in the event, collecting canned food donations through the South Austin community. Our team is always humbled to be a part of such a great event and look forward to it each fall. Finding ways to give back to our community is something we are so passionate about.
Thank you to all the staff, agents and vendors that made this event such a success. We will see you next year!
