Difficulty: Kid friendly, but beware of critters, poison ivy and thorny vines off trail and moutain bikers on trail

Go to the Loop 360 access to Barton Creek Greenbelt. Park in the trailhead parking lot and put your valuables in the trunk. Follow the trail to the first "intersection". Take the trail to the right heading east. Continue to a scenic spot and enjoy a northeast view from a log "bench". Then continue on the trail heading east across a small wooden bridge. From the first "intersection" after the bridge, take the trail to the right heading due west. Walk past the caution sign "Area Closed
for Revegetation". From the center of the next "intersection" at a heading of about 65° stands a very large, double-trunk oak tree about 45 ft. away off trail. Walk carefully around thorny vines. At the base of this majestic oak under leaves and some rocks is hidden the Barton Creek Greenbelt Letterbox.
