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. The station 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 crosses Boggy Creek and becomes a 6ft concrete sidewalk up to Rosewood Avenue. However, work is underway in late 2020 to upgrade this section to match the northern most section - two-lane, 14ft wide concrete pathway. Users can access the Rosewood Neighborhood Park, together with the recreation center and public pool. Across Rosewood Avenue, the path becomes crushed granite, running parallel to Nile Street to the trailhead located behind the Conley-Guerrero Senior Center.
The Boggy Creek Greenbelt Trail is open to cyclists, pedestrians and visitors with (leashed) dogs.
Park at Rosewood Neighborhood Park (2300 Rosewood Ave, Austin, TX 78702) and at the Conley-Guerrero Senior Activity Center (808 Nile St, Austin, TX). The trail is also accessible via transit, both bus and rail. To plan your trip, check the Capital Metro website.
