Beautiful day, especially now that the snow is gone. It was only a little muddy in some areas.

love this trail. great path to stroll and have a conversation while enjoying the city views. when we ride our bikes it's an easy ride to just enjoy in the morning if you're looking for something low key. last time I went everyone respected the path and shared well.

The great weather brought out most of the people who have been cooped up in their houses. Great views of the city and the water.

Great stroller friendly trail. Good signage. Great views. Only downfall was the trash but did see someone picking it up. There is a lot of foot traffic and bikes, some people wore masks and some didn’t but it is pretty open and for the most part people socially distanced. Would definitely go again. Make sure you bring plenty water and some really good snacks!

HikingGreat!

This trail should actually be labeled as the Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail. This is an easy, mostly wide trail with multiple start points and entrances. It is family and stroller friendly. I usually love this trail, it is beautiful and right in the heart of Austin, however the amount of homeless camps currently set up right along the trail detract from its beauty. Hiking with my baby I didn't feel as safe as I did years ago when this wasn't an issue. There were a lot of people (clearly not out for exercise) loitering along the trail. The upside is that it was also very busy with people exercising so we didn't feel secluded. The trail itself is well-maintained by the foundation and the lake/river is peaceful.
