Outer loop in Mary Moore Searight Metro Park. Trail can be connected to many other inner trails and made into shorter or longer loops.

Cute park with a variety of activity options, for the entire family.
There’s a playground for the little ones, a covered picnic area & LOTS of trails. If it weren’t for this app, I could easily get lost.
I’d give this 5-stars but it reeks like outhouse throughout the park & I came across a spot where people dumped their belongings- mattress, old wood, etc.
I’d run it again, but it wouldn’t be my first option.

Plenty of single track mostly flat with an occasional climb and rocky decents. lots of hidden gems. very nice scenery. there is a section where slaughter creek turns into a mini canyon with at least 30ft walls on each side. trails are rugged enough to get your heart pumping. Best part is you cant get lost. All single tracks eventually cross the main paved loop.

This is a wonderful park with many, many trails both large and small. You can find a trail that's right for a beginner as well as those for the more experienced hiker. If it rains the Creek swells close to the entry point but you can always enter by the South entrance and not have to walk through water. The park also includes the soccer field, a baseball field, a play ground, disk golf and restrooms. The restrooms are only by the North parking lot. Many of the trails are truly shaded but there are still some sunny spots. A beautiful Creek runs along one side.

Loved the trails and views were absolutely spectacular. Best of all it was quiet and not a lot of foot traffic.

I live right next to the park so I go there almost everyday to walk my dogs or just to go to get my nature fix. I love this little piece of paradise. Great trails, beautiful creek. My dogs love it too. They can swim in the creek and run around in the woods. There’s abundant wildlife and spring flowers everywhere. Also a good birding area and It’s terrific for bluebonnet photos!

If you get off the paved trail, you may forget you are near civilization. It is nearly impossible to get lost because it all eventually loops around no matter which trail you take. There are some really nice hidden gems back there. Explore!

Love this place! Short but good for a 30-40 min run.

They have a great paved trail...but it lacks shade. I attempted to create my own route using side trails and it was both challenging and shaded. I only encountered 1 cyclist and no joggers/hikers. If you do this make sure you use the Map My Run app or another similar. The All Trails app was far from accurate for most of the jog and I could've been wandering indefinitely if I were relying solely on its navigation system.

Went today with my pup on the off leash side. Loved it. Would like some signage, but the adventure was super fun. Will be going again!

Attractive trails in a sprawling city park. Needs a bit better maintenance and some maps or signs. Walked a two mile loop with four kids with no trouble. Nice place for pets, lots of dogs. Fun playground with pavilions and bathrooms.

Trail is hard to follow, no signage at all. I made what I thought was a complete loop, turns out I wasn't even on the bike trail.
I also ate it crossing the creek right at the beginning, it's SLICK when wet!! Lol.

Got a little lost from heading the wrong way on the path. There's no map in the front like there should be. Trail is nice and easy, some places are rocky though. Sunny, no fountains along the trail. Lots of dogs out, spotted some deer too. Would recommend.

Good trail system that is very convenient for South Austinites. Nothing about it is too rigorous but a couple of side trails make it possible to get away from the crowds during peak times.

It's an easy walk, nice to be in a wooded area though.

Trails are great for mtn biking and I'm sure fine for running. Quite a maze of trails running alongside Slaughter Creek. Nice large turtle pond as well.

How good are the running trails and is there a way to get a map of the trails?
