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 great trail to ride your trail bike, but beware of dogs off leash. One ran in front of my bike last year and I crashed and broke my arm in the fall. Other than that, I highly recommend this one for bike riding.

A go to trail. Runners and walkers: be careful. The trail is tight in sections and high speed mountain bikes and horses frequent this trail. Be careful!

Not a bad hike for just outside Austin downtown. Only did the 3.5 portion and cut at the bypass because I was running in 104 degrees. Not difficult but not a lot of shade so avoid during high sun in summer if you can.

Good fast entry level trail. The trails are frequently closed during and after significant rain to prevent damage to the trail system. No pets allowed.
