The Brushy Creek Municipal Utility District (MUD) has several trails, including the Greenbelt, which runs between Cat Hollow Park and O’Connor Rd., and between O’Connor and Great Oaks Drive, The Greenbelt has several caves, including a bat cave with an observation platform for viewing the bats emerging at sunset. Although not contiguous with the Brushy Creek Regional Trail, it lies a short distance to the south.

March 2015 Field Trip: A map of the red & blue “Community Park” trail can be found on the second page of the brochure at the Brushy Creek MUD website.  A Google Earth Map of the trail can be found on Google Earth Trail Maps – Brushy Creek MUD. (This requires that you have Google Earth installed.)
