Crestview/Highland Urban Trail Description

Although just shy of a mile, the Crestview/Highland Urban Trail offers an important commuter connection between two MetroRail stations (Crestview and Highland) in north Austin. The paved pathway, constructed by Capital Metro, parallels the rail line and Airport Boulevard with attractive landscaping and trees placed between the trail and the busy roadway. At its southern end, the trail skirts the former Highland Mall, which is being transformed by Austin Community College into a school.

Parking and Trail Access

Access the trail on its northern end at the Crestview Station (6920 N. Lamar Blvd.) and by the Highland Station (6420 Airport Blvd.) on its southern end.
