Smith Greenbelt provides the citizens of Lakeway with a short but wonderful hiking trail which wanders along Hurst Creek. It is a fabulous place for a family outing, a lunchtime jog, or to walk the dog (on a leash, of course). The 4.5 acre greenbelt was made possible through a generous donation from Coleman and Mary Smith.
The Smith Greenbelt trail is primitive but well maintained by the Lakeway City Parks and Recreation Department. It is also a great place for mountain biking. A stream runs through it and the trail is interesting, on either foot or bike. It's a nice little shortcut between Lohman's Crossing and Lakeway Drive. The next bright, sunny day pack up the family and head for Smith Greenbelt for a cool, relaxing nature walk.
There are two entrances to the Smith Greenbelt. The main entrance is off of Lohman's Crossing, adjacent to the Lakeway Police Department and right across the street from the Hamilton Greenbelt trailhead and parking lot. You may use the parking lot at the Hamilton Greenbelt or the LPD parking lot. The other entrance is off of Lakeway Drive, but please note that there are no parking facilities and that this entrance is best used by those on foot.
