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.
The Crestview/Highland Urban Trail is included in the Capital Metro’s Red Line Trail network, which will be a 32-mile trail network running from Downtown Austin to Leander. Other trails included in the network are the Boggy Creek Greenbelt Trail, the Lance Armstrong Bikeway, the Northern Walnut Creek Trail, the MoPac Express Lane Shared Use Path, and the EastLink Trail.
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. The stations are also served by bus lines. Routes can be found at the Capital MetroRail website.
