Slaughter Creek Trail Loop is a 5.1 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Austin, Texas that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Horses are also able to use this trail.
From Austin, go to the Y in Oak Hill. Continue west on Hwy 290 and turn left onto Camp Ben McCullough Rd./FM1826 (third traffic light after the Y). Drive approximately 2 miles, cross the low water bridge over Slaughter Creek and the property/gate entrance will be on your left.
This is a beautiful trail. I'll definitely come back out here.
There's very little parking which is irritating but it helps to keep the number of people on the trail low.
Can't give a review because road was closed until further notice on 3/9/15.
good mix of technical and fast track. I prefer more elevation change and some sections washing out. Still an all around fun ride.
It's been maybe two years since I hiked this loop. I remember that it was full sun and that no dogs were allowed although I do believe that equestrians are allowed.
While there are a few rocky patches spread out along the trail that can prove troublesome if one isn't careful, the majority of the trail serves as a smooth and winding tour of a small section of Texas hill country.
Easy loop. Lovely Sunday afternoon run/hike. A bit rocky in parts, overall very mellow.
It was great
