Run here a lot with my dog, mix of gravel and cement that juts over the water for great views of the city. Frequent water fountains and dog waste stations.

Flat ground. Dirt trails and cement trails. Watch out for construction. Scenic and fresh. Water smelled a little. circles by the power plant.

Great pace for light cardio, beautiful scenery, canopied trails with old trees, the evening bats, sometimes an odd fishy smell near riverside embankments, and journeying with the unplugged.

Busy every time I've been here but really nice park to run/walk. I feel a little too crowded for biking. Nice stops along the trail.

Beautiful trail. The trail is easy, it is fairly flat for the most part. Crushed granite. There are a few areas where you wonder hey where did the trail go, but was able to figure it out, except at one spot. I started near lakeshore blvd going counter clockwise. As the path goes away go upward towards the bride walkway, narrow about 3 feet wide. When you come down just work your way near the river and you are back on track. Then you will cross some kiddy railroad tracks and then you end up in a neighborhood st. Just go up the st about 20 feet and on your left the rock trail starts again. You will go around a baseball field and then it is easy. When you get to I 35 bridge go under the bridge thru the parking lot and then you are back on your way. When you get to mopac pedestrian bridge you will cross a 2nd small bridge, you will be near Zilker park. This were I got lost. Go over the bridge hook a left towards the same crushed rock. I kept going further into Zilker. After that you are home free, easy to find your way back. I give it 5/5 just b/c of the beauty and all the sights to see. I had an easy go of it on bike, got tight when had crowds of people bunching up and taking whole walk way. went on a Friday at 1:30
