An easy walk around the river with views of the capitol building and the river. It can be extended to reach nearly ten miles or shortened to make this far less. A trail for a run as it is mostly flat.

I rolled this paved trail with my wife, son, and old Labrador retriever. Nice paved trail two lanes for bikes in the summer it would be brutally hot without shade. Today it was 59° breezy it was beautiful good workout

Great running path, trail markers at every half mile. Lots of bikes but everyone is considerate. Next month they will be closing the trail for Hwy 183 work so if you’re starting from govalle park you’ll only have about 1.5 miles before you have to turn around.

Very pleasant walk - some parts shaded and some parts sunny, but lots of variety along the way with things to look at. Lots of off leash dogs, though they were all well behaved. Lots of bikes, but no one was going so fast that it made it hard to share the trail. In the middle of the walk there were water fountains and bathrooms in Pease Park, for which I was grateful! And at the 6th St end, there’s an eatery with an outdoor terrace overlooking the trail, which allows dogs, so that was a nice treat when we got there!

Went on bike ride with Becky while kids were at mimis house.

A tiny stroll through nature. You’ll only get exercise if you pair it with walking around the surrounding neighborhood which has a few hills. Each time I’ve been there I’ve seen deer, though.

Really awesome city trail. Easy to navigate. Very clean. Crowded in some spots but not too bad on the weekday. Great for running!

This is my ‘home trail’ for >25yrs. Flat loops of 2.9, 4.1, 4.5, 6.9 & 10 miles. Want to see people? Stick West of First St bridge. It does get crowded on weekends after 8am as literally everyone and their dog is there, but still plenty of room on this wide trail. Want more peace & quiet? Head east of Congress Bridge and it’s less crowded east of I35. Want a treat? Sunrise over downtown from the south shore. Not many people, the Lake is glass and the colors are amazing bouncing off the buildings and water

Pretty clean trail. It’s all paved on this route.

Nice urban trail! Easy to walk. A little rocky. Hard to spot Lady bird lake - bridge on Lamar Blvd or Lou Neff are the closest options.

Great trail and a beautiful day to walk.

It was a good trail with some beautiful views of the Austin skyline. I logged in about 12 miles on the loop. I'm only giving it four stars because there is so much traffic on this trail. People are everywhere! With the people and the cars driving by, there is little serenity.

Excelente para caminata, salir en bicicleta y correr. Hay mucha vegetación dependiendo el lado que recorras, lo que hace sombra. Al final hay un poco de inclinaciones pero valen la pena, excelentes vistas panorámicas. En tiempos de lluvia usar repelente, por qué te encuentras en medio del monte y corre un río paralelo. Por la noche hay avistamiento de murciélagos ya que atraviesas los puentes de Loyola Ln. y 969. Si caminas por el lugar solo hay que ir muy atentos ya que pasan muchos ciclista y en las zonas de inclinaciones algunas veces a gran velocidad. Yo disfruto ir a caminar o en bicicleta.

Nice way to see the beauty and eclectic nature of Austin. Biking is fun, sand and gravel are ok...if you have a sensitive road bike...then maybe different tires are better for this ride. I went on a Monday, after ACL...pedestrian traffic was lovely, we shared the trail. Lots of stops for photo ops. The city has so many gems.

Still my favorite 10 mile loop to run in the country

I really enjoy riding my hard tail through this trail. What would make this trail have 5 stars would be the addition of more features here, like berms and north shore skinnies.

Many options. 3, 5, 7 and 10 mile loops.

Somewhat of a disappointment. This may in part be due to the spectacular hikes I had last week in Ketchikan, Alaska. This trail is fully paved unless you take some off- shoots which had lots of bike tire tracks on them. Also this trail should be recategorized as easy since it had almost no elevation change. I will definitely seek out a different trail on my next trip to the area.

Dog friendly trail. You may start from the unleashed park. A good 10 mile stretch with lovely greenery, lake, and city views. My and my german sheperd's favorite part of Austin.

Simple paved loop around a public park. Out in the open a lot with little shade, perfect for strollers since it’s all paved. Some light and moderate inclined depending on the direction you choose to go. I would go early in the summer to avoid sub, also two wonderful playgrounds - one for littles and one for bigs that are well out together with sun shades over them

Nice trail, we ran it twice last week (7/19-720) and definitely enjoyed it. Great for combining running on dirt trail and concrete.

walked this today and it was fantastic.

My dog and I love walking the Lady Bird Lake trail. There's easy street parking near Austin High School and it's simple to get on and off the trail. Plus, at certain points you are basically downtown and can grab a quick coffee or a beer. My dog also likes jumping in the lake to cool off. Lady Bird is a weekend staple for us.

Easy trail that winds through the city. Very busy but it’s wide enough that you don’t have to constantly dodge people. Beautiful views of the skyline and lake. Lots of areas you can get on and off if you don’t want to walk the entire thing.
