      Hi Bob,
       
      Maybe you can see it, maybe not, but both of the posted "no trespassing" signs are not on TC property.
      This is the official map from the website.
      And anyway, I've always loved playing hostess and will be happy to host any cachers who may be questioned by trail police. ;)

      Bob,

      Thanks for checking into this. I think Jeff may be onto something
      when he says it may be land set aside by a private developer. I have
      been looking at the City of Austin park map and it appears that the
      COA parkland comes close but not quite to the two trailheads in
      question. Since that is the case, I guess they (the developer) have
      the right to restrict useage of their narrow strip of land to
      residents of their subdivision. That's a bummer because they seem to
      be able to control all access to the greenbelt from the south
      perimeter.

      I will try to upload the map to the photos section. I have marked the
      two trailheads with red dots. (They are just to the north of the
      Gaines Greenbelt.

      Thanks again for your fast and informative response. Maybe GiGi will
      be willing to "host" us when we want to go caching in the area! :)
