Cibolo Trail

Nice but Construction

February, 2024 by rxrayinc

Feb 2024 the center of the trail under construction. Hard to get around but possible. Lots of restaurant close to trail.

Veloway Trail

My own neighborhood Veloway!!!!!

July, 2023 by allbizns

I just moved back to my hometown of Austin, and live in a nice, quiet, safe, gated neighborhood, in Circle C Ranch. I decided to get back into road cycling, so I bought an amazing bike, and started looking for safe places to ride. To my immense shock and pleasure, I found that the Veloway was five minutes away.

This park is unique in the US. So, what a blessing. It is about 3.6 miles, very clean, safe, well kept, with no hikers, or cars. I love it, and spend an hour or so, doing laps, a few times a week, to train for long group (intermediate) rides. It is a tough course, and I love it.

I wish these were all over our country, as I have homes, and business interests, throughout the country…

Leon Creek Greenway

First time on this trail

July, 2023 by jgomez7407

My first time on this trail it was amazing very clean and smooth path. I would like to meet some regular rides to join me I am not an elite rider but I do enjoy a nice enjoyable ride.

Lance Armstrong Bikeway (Crosstown Greenway)

Very popular cross-town link

April, 2023 by ksprott

I’ve ridden this route across town to/from work for the last 3 years and love it. I am not someone who would ride across downtown Austin even on roads that have dedicated space on the side for bikes, but this design of having a completely separated bike lane thru the CBD, along with dedicated bike lane stoplights, feels much safer to me. The path gets a Lot of usage, which is great, since it’s that fewer cars on the road. I use the western section of the trail, so not sure what the section closer to 183 is like.

Lance Armstrong Bikeway (Crosstown Greenway)

nice spot for a jog

March, 2023 by dugsmith98

Quick spot for a jog or short bike ride out and back from downtown hotels and convention center

Salado Creek Greenway

There are a number of dangerous hills and turns throughout the trail. Perhaps a more experienced Rollerblade enthusiast could manage, however, not without a spotter.

Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail

Outstanding Bike Experience

January, 2023 by let3322

Beautiful scenery with a wonderful variety of twist and turns, bridges and pathways alongside the lake. All on a well maintained gravel trail. Plenty of places to stop and picnic or just enjoy the views of the kayakers and paddle boards. This is a super busy and popular path with LOTS of joggers and pedestrians. We went on a Tuesday and the traffic was just about the right amount. I’m sure weekends would be a challenge.

Alazan Creek Greenway Trail

Trash is an eyesore

December, 2022 by arlene.deardorff

The trail itself is wide and maintained and well marked. We started at Woodlawn Lake, not part of the trail, and went around on the paved path. Then we biked Alazon Creek and there were nice looking walls with different colors. The surrounding areas had lots of trash which wasn’t pleasant to look at. San Antonio does an amazing job with the Mission Trail and it would be nice if the efforts could be extended to Alazon.

Apache Creek Greenway

Good trail

December, 2022 by arlene.deardorff

The trail was well maintained and easy to ride on a wide path. We biked just past Elmendorf Lake Park and turned around. Once you go past the lake there is a lot of trash in the surrounding creek area. It was an eyesore but if you go just to the end of the lake, the environment is pleasing to the eye.

Schertz Parkway

This is a sidewalk along a busy street with intersections and crosswalk signals. I prefer nature. No nature here, but there are lots of people walking so may feel safer for those that may like the activity level around them.

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.
