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.

Hiked this bit as part of the longer 10 mile loop

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

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 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.

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

Mostly chat trail around a pond before the trail connects to another park where it becomes mostly paved. An 1855 homestead with outbuildings is located at the second connecting park that you can explore from dawn to dusk.

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.

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

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.

More of a walk than a trail. Mostly park and homes. Felt safe and clean!

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.

Decent, clean, safe. Best part of this trail is the pond. The rest is just nature's alley in between people's backyards leading into open areas with a swimming pool and an awesome playground that would have some adults interested in checking out! Great for picnics in the fall as there are tables and a deck to eat at. Lots of turnoffs to go further into the neighborhood but with open areas not very shaded.

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.
