  • Loved walking along this trail. Very clean, well-maintained, very popular. I felt very safe walking alone. There are spots along the trail where there's free parking.

  • Having borrowed and and driven to Austin from Dallas with our son & daughter-in-law's bicycles, we were so happy to have this trail so near our hotel, as well as having great mobility all over...

  • Beautiful Park and Lake with wonderful scenery and lots of green energy 💚Love it!💙
  • Fun little walking path to explore the river on a weekend. Lots of people out biking and running on the trail. We had wanted to ride our Bird scooter on it, but they don't allow electric scooters, so we walked instead. It's pretty shaded and flat, so nothing too strenuous.
