Our Hiking Trails
St. Mark’s is uniquely located on eight acres of Barton Creek Greenbelt property. All Austinites (and their dogs!) are welcome to come hike our meditation trail, which itself connects to the city’s public Barton Creek Greenbelt trails.
Our meditation trail features an outdoor chapel, a labyrinth, benches to rest, and a few sculptures to enjoy.
The labyrinth is similar in appearance to a small maze, but, unlike a maze, is unicursal, having a single path leading to the center. The labyrinth invites us into the “exit and return” journey of our faith and symbolizes the assurance we have in our return to God. There are a variety of ways to walk a labyrinth.
