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 enjoyed this place! Dog friendly. I tried different trails to see which ways is easier for myself and my friend(s) to walk on the trail. Next time, will try other way. Overall, nice place and free!

great biking trail for all stages. simple to complex terrain. feels like you're in the middle of nowhere.

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.

First time to make steep uphill. With CJ

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.

Nice older paved trail thru opens fields with trees scattered thru out and around the edges. Some wooded areas with some gentle hills that give nice scenic views. Lot of deer. Lots of sun with a few spots of shade. I do wish there were a couple of benches because it would be a nice spot to sit for a bit. Park runs behind houses. Overall nice place for relaxing walk on a sunny afternoon.

Not for me. This neighborhood is stunning, but this trail does not do the homes justice. Entrance is pretty trashed and questionable, and the walk has that “abandoned” feeling to it. Walking the neighborhood is much nicer.

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.

Amazing trail near to where I live to my convenience. Good for walking, hiking, running, picnicking, fishing, ect.

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.

My first time here today. Thought I would be following the red line shown on the map by following the trail but ended up on a completely different loop. Not well marked. Had 2 large dogs charge us off leash and ended up picking up my small dog until the owner arrived to wrangle their dogs. May try this again when it cools off.
