Explore the most popular road biking trails near Austin with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Plenty of single track mostly flat with an occasional climb and rocky decents. lots of hidden gems. very nice scenery. there is a section where slaughter creek turns into a mini canyon with at least 30ft walls on each side. trails are rugged enough to get your heart pumping. Best part is you cant get lost. All single tracks eventually cross the main paved loop.

Excellent urban multiuse with tons of smiles given and taken

This is a wonderful park with many, many trails both large and small. You can find a trail that's right for a beginner as well as those for the more experienced hiker. If it rains the Creek swells close to the entry point but you can always enter by the South entrance and not have to walk through water. The park also includes the soccer field, a baseball field, a play ground, disk golf and restrooms. The restrooms are only by the North parking lot. Many of the trails are truly shaded but there are still some sunny spots. A beautiful Creek runs along one side.

Nice and wide. Does a loop so you return to your starting point.

This is an ok paved trail for walking, but be prepared to be surrounded by bike riders.

I have done this couple of times now. But every time it was in summer. So it is best to start early to avoid doing it when the sun gets hot. A pretty long loop that takes you through different parts of the Austin downtown along the Colorado river. You will never be alone on this trail There were enough joggers and cyclists every time I did this trail.

Nice very scenic. Lots of shade. MTB trails everywhere.

Beautiful scenes along lake
Many joggers and cyclists
Worth the time and effort

Loved the trails and views were absolutely spectacular. Best of all it was quiet and not a lot of foot traffic.

Great trail. It's pretty crowed unless you go really early.

The trail is all paved. Very good for biking. The surroundings are lovely. I saw lots of wildflowers and also some wild grape. There are some unpaved side trails that we're fun to explore.

Might send my family there to ride bikes. Probably won't walk there again. Walking mostly on pavement isn't my favorite kind of walk.

Great for Rollerblading if you’re into that! Bike riding is fun but watch for shifted concrete slabs. Some are risen from the land to the point to where you could bump one too hard! Other then that, a wonderful trail through the woods.

This is one of my favorite spots in the city! It is full of life on the trail and on the water- tons of amazing city view photo opportunities during a sunset or night hike- take a flashlight as the trail isn’t lit!

I've ran there twice while on the road and plan to as I go through Austin today. I've ran one loop and two loops previously, I ran the full length both times for a 10 and 20 miler. Excited about returning as it's an awesome place to run!!

I live right next to the park so I go there almost everyday to walk my dogs or just to go to get my nature fix. I love this little piece of paradise. Great trails, beautiful creek. My dogs love it too. They can swim in the creek and run around in the woods. There’s abundant wildlife and spring flowers everywhere. Also a good birding area and It’s terrific for bluebonnet photos!

Very busy loop. An urban trail at best.

Brought my two dogs, so much goose poo and mud piles all over the trail. lots of bikes, kept having to get off the path into the grass/mud to let them by. Most never warned me they were coming up and startled my dogs. I wouldn't have minded too badly if they just warned me. Came across a dead dog in the field, and there were no rest spots to stand or sit and let the dogs breathe. It was ok, only will use if it rains again.

If you get off the paved trail, you may forget you are near civilization. It is nearly impossible to get lost because it all eventually loops around no matter which trail you take. There are some really nice hidden gems back there. Explore!

Easy walk, but beware of the high-speed bicyclists.

I live near this park so I walk my dogs here, take my grandson to the playground area, and even swim in the city pool during the summer. An added bonus are the trails that cut through the center of the park for a more secluded walk.

Great inner city Trail/dog walking area. Because there are several trails that come together you may take a wrong turn but still feel you are on the trail. Lots of bikes if walking but Trail wide enough in most areas. Several restrooms on the route. Most of the Trail is along the Lake but you must go up to city street level to cross over the Lake.
