Recent Trail Reviews

Southern Walnut Creek Hike and Bike Trail

Very nice trail !

February, 2017 by campbell_tl

I rode this entire trail round-trip three times in one week and found it to be a very nice bike trail. 99.5 % of the concrete joints are barely noticeable, some are slightly rough, and 15 - 20 require some finesse- but none were rim-benders. The trail is lightly used on weekdays and it can get busy on weekends. At the north end of the trail one can ride another mile north on county roads and find the Manor Expressway "Shared Use Trail". On the south end the trail easily connects to the "Lance Armstrong Bikeway" on 5th Street- so the Walnut Creek trail can be a very nice segment of a much larger system in Austin. The trail does have some fairly steep hills that will be very hard to climb with a single speed bike. While it has many flat and easy sections, it also has some sections that are not for beginners- at least not on a busy day. I have ridden many trails around the country and it really doesn't get much better than this, especially considering the overall (constantly improving) bicycle route situation in the Austin area.

Veloway Trail

New Road Surface = Great Ride!

February, 2017 by s_byrd

Thanks to the crew who laid down the new surface I can update and improve my previous rating. Beautiful new tarmac is a real pleasure to ride.

Veloway Trail

Tarmac needs a refresh

January, 2017 by s_byrd

Great for the most part - nice variety of elevations and even a short technical climb. Also some good places to practice cornering skills. But the surface is cracked throughout the course and in dire need of resurfacing. Cracks are painted bright red, as they should be, by a diligient crew. Ride with caution.

Skaters and Cyclists Only!! Great Track

August, 2016 by cmrayaustin

I have been skating here 15 years. It is worth driving to this park from any area of town. There is more than enough parking! Most Cyclists and Skaters respect each other's space. Stay to the right at all times, especially if you are a new cyclist or skater (or are with your children and teaching them). When passing someone always let them know in advance you are passing by saying "ON YOUR LEFT". This is for courtesy and safety of everyone. There is a 'General Rules' sign out front that you should read before getting on the road. If you follow the rules and stay alert of all others out there, you will have a lot of fun. There is an occasional "Tour de France wanna be" cyclist (not often) who thinks the road belongs to them. Just stay to the right and you won't have to deal with them. Have fun, bring your camera, lots of water and enjoy your time there.

Southern Walnut Creek Hike and Bike Trail

Bumpy side walk type trail

April, 2016 by anamator

Coming from FL that has bike trails paved with smooth asphalt, this sidewalk trail was way too bumpy for my road bike or 5 star rating! It is made of concrete with the crack lines built-in every six feet or so which makes for a very uncomfortable ride for road bikes that have narrow and hard tires that are inflated with a high PSI (as recommended for these types of tires and bikes). There are also some hazards that you need to be concerned about at high speeds such as dirt and gravel on path and unevenness in trail path due to shifting of land underneath it. For casual and slow riding I'm sure this trail is ok for you but if your wanting to go fast and workout on this trail like I was, you are going to be disappointed. At least I was!

This trail is not good for Road bikes, Roller Skating, Rollerblading, Skateboarding and anything else with hard tires which want/need smooth trail paths!!

The CONS for this trail (Road Bikes):
- Way to bumpy with the crack lines built-in through out
- Uneven in places, if not paying attention will pop your tires at high speeds and hurt your groin (be cautious at high speeds)
- Grass growing up on the sides of the trail creating an even more narrow path in both directions
- Dirt and gravel on the path at some turns and straight away areas (be cautious at high speeds)
- Vibrations in your vision due to the bumpy crack lines in path

The PROS (Road Bikes):
- Long path with not too many cross roads and required stops to watch for on coming vehicle traffic
- Some good scenic views along the path
- Hilly creating some challenging uphill areas

Cottonwood Creek Trail (TX)

A Nice Stroll By The Sewage Treatment Plant

January, 2016 by kat.davis365

It was OK, except for when we got a whiff of the treatment plant. My dog liked it;). A nice bridge, a pass under the highway, some parks and bathrooms. Not challenging, just strolling.

Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail

A trail Austin should be proud of.

January, 2016 by dmmz

This well maintained, heavily used trail is a jewel in the crown of Austin bike/hike trails. From MoPac bridge to the Montopolis sports compex is a fairly level ride over crushed red granite most of the way. The new paved section over the water on the south side completes a fabulous trail. I've been riding this trail for nearly 20 years now. I wish the rest of the city had more like it so bikers can get to various places safely.

Veloway Trail

Austin city gem

October, 2015 by joeploeger

The Velloway has been a safe heaven for my family for more than 15 years as my boys learned to ride bikes and progress into a great training ground as they advanced into triathlon and road cycling. The closed off bike and rollerblading path allows the entire family to go at their own pace with little worry about anyone getting lost or kidnapped. Definitely a must visit for Austin biking families
