DescriptionAustin hike and bike trail in downtown area. Mile markers, good signage, many loops of different distances possible.

Loading location information.


  • A fantastic place to run, especially if you need water along the way but can't stand to carry water - there is water and/or bathroom a minimum of every two miles. The path is dirt, smooth, and wide, there is lots of shade, and the scenery is great. There are mile markers along the way, and as someone else mentioned, options of smaller loops by crossing bridges. The largest loop around the lake is around 10 miles. Love running here!

  • Great resource in downtown Austin! Many distance options since bridges enable loops. A 'see & be seen' running spot. Can get crowded on weekends & late afternoons. ( by Tracy on 2013-08-06 )
