County Line Memorial Trail

Don't expect nature

October, 2022 by paulaleannpope

The concrete path is nice. Most people won't be able to do the exercises at the stations as instructed, so do your own thing. Don't expect nature. You're walking along an open field between housing areas, right behind people's privacy fences. There was one spot where 3 panels were erected showing plants and animals, but none of that was to be seen because the area was mown down to the dirt. I don't believe I would classify this as a trail so much as simply a walkway between housing areas.

Southern Walnut Creek Trail

Paved and Shaded

Great trail to ride—lots of shade and it's pretty well maintained. Depending on where you start, it can be a lil difficult for new riders but just as rewarding.

Airport Convenience

June, 2022 by dustyrkruise

Nice running path for travelers stuck at or near the airport. The concrete path is wide, flat, and almost crack free. The path is located very close to a busy roadway which causes a ton of traffic and road noise. Additionally, there are many sections with little more than a narrow strip of green space between the trail and traffic which is a detriment to children or animals. Lastly there are some spots where a guardrail should be installed but has not been completed.

Great Trail!

My husband and I took this as our first longer trail with our new ebikes. Great trail with great scenery. We rode pedal assist 1 most of the way but we were not in a hurry…just taking it all in.

Brushy Creek Regional Trail

1/2 gravel 1/2 concrete

Very nice scenery, water views! Just found at least half of the trail is gravel most packed some loose, just be prepared.

Wells Branch Hike and Bike Trail

A beautiful, hidden gem

November, 2021 by jeremyandvonnie

I am surprised how many people still don’t know about this trail, but then again maybe that’s a good thing. It is clean, well-maintained, and quite peaceful. The trail wanders through the neighborhood, around Mills Pond, through the main parks areas, along a disc golf course, and it follows a creek most of the way with multiple bridges. I recommend this trail to everyone and they are always pleasantly surprised by how great it is.

THE PERFECT URBAN TRAIL EXPERIENCE

October, 2021 by thejake91739

Wow! What a pleasure it was to experience this awesome trail on a bike!

We did a clockwise loop of the lake, about 10.5 miles, on an overcast, horribly humid, early Sunday morning in October, but the weather certainly did not discourage us or keep other active Austinites off the trail! I have never seen so many people on a trail before, and we were easily outnumbered by walkers and joggers by a ratio of at least 50:1. There had to be thousands on that busy, crowded hike and bike trail, but everyone was so Austin cool, chill, and polite that nary a negative word was expressed (except by the irate homeless guy who yelled something unintelligible at me when he felt I invaded his space). Be that as it may, for these two Southern Californians the trail and its users gave off a beach city sort of vibe such as in San Diego. Everyone was so fit, healthy-looking, and laid back.

Speaking of homeless: When we first pulled up to park and set up our bikes at Rendon Park I was concerned about all of the homeless who had pitched tents and staked out their own bit of real estate, but my concerns were allayed when I saw the hundreds of parked cars and joggers utilizing the trail. With so many using the trail it was obviously safe for a couple of senior citizen California tourists! (Later in the day my nephew, an Austin resident, told me the homeless had pretty much taken over Lady Bird Park, and it was just a few weeks prior that the citizens and the city got fed up and finally had them relocated; at least, most of them.)

The trail truly is totally magnificent! The views of the lake, trees, and modern downtown skyline from the awesome boardwalk are absolutely spectacular and are so photo-op worthy. The path, which is mostly hard packed dirt, is not an issue for bicyclists and most likely appreciated by the runners. Whether you live in the Austin area or just visiting, this is a can't miss trail!

Nature Wonderland

This trail is like getting lost in Mother Natures wonderland. Trails are clearly marked. Very safe and peaceful so far.
