Boggy Creek Greenbelt Trail Description

The Boggy Creek Greenbelt is a slice of nature in East Austin, where the shade of oaks, pecans and other hardwoods invites residents to wander along the banks of the creek, sit down for a picnic or try to spot their favorite local bird. The greenbelt is bounded by the Capital MetroRail tracks on the west side.

The trail runs the length of the greenbelt, connecting different recreational areas as well as providing access to the Capital Metro MLK Jr Station, which lies at the northern point of the greenbelt. A pedestrian crossing takes users across the tracks into MLK Jr Neighborhood Park. The path winds past teaching and community gardens and the Downs-Mabson ball fields to E 12th Street. This segment is known as the Upper Boggy Creek Trail.

From 12th Street, the trail heads south through Boggy Creek Greenbelt and passes near Rosewood Neighborhood Park with its recreation center and public pool to Rosewood Avenue. Continuing through the park, the trail crosses Boggy Creek and parallels it to Webberville Road. 

The trail is included in Capital Metro’s Red Line Trail network, a 32-mile trail network running from Downtown Austin to Leander and which provides additional miles both north and south. Other trails included in the network are the Lance Armstrong Bikeway, the Crestview/Highland Urban Trail, the Northern Walnut Creek Trail, the MoPac Express Lane Shared Use Path, and the EastLink Trail.

The section running south from MLK Jr Station to Rosewood Avenue is a dual-track trail, which allows pedestrians and bicyclists to travel separately on parallel trails. The Boggy Creek Greenbelt Trail is open to cyclists, pedestrians and visitors with (leashed) dogs.

Parking and Trail Access

The trail is accessible via transit, both bus and rail. CapMetro is Austin's regional public transit system. To plan your trip, visit the CapMetro website.
