1853 Walnut Creek Greenbelt
Meandering beneath cedar-rimmed limestone bluffs, the historic creek that took its name for the Black Walnut trees that line it is a throwback to the day when early settlers rode through in search of campsites and game. The pastoral greenbelt is teeming with native animal life, from deer and raccoons to bobcats and coyotes, and features a mowed walking trail. You can almost see men on horseback riding through the native grasses onto the Blackland Prairie. A native stand of Texas Pecan trees, along with live oaks and walnuts, shade the creek bottoms which has remained little changed for centuries.
