The Gilleland Creek Trail is the highlight of Pflugerville's multiuse trail system. The trail runs through the heart of the city, connecting neighborhoods to each other and to their parks. Stretching 6.5 miles from point-to-point, it is also the longest hike and bike trail in Pflugerville.
The east end of the trail is in Northeast Metropolitan Park, a huge 349-acre multipurpose recreation area with facilities for soccer, baseball and basketball as well as a skate park and BMX track. The trail goes right through the park, allowing park visitors to visit these facilities on foot or by bike, or to simply come for the trail itself. From the park, the trail heads north to Pecan Street, where it begins its gentle ascent towards Grand Avenue Parkway.
The trail starts to follow the creek along its wooded banks, weaving in and out of the trees. Across Immanuel Road, there's a small trail parking lot in Bohls Park. The section of trail up to Railroad Avenue forms part of the Heritage Trail loop. At Railraod Avenue, the loop trail continues north, whereas the Gilleland Creek Trail continues west, passing the Gilleland Creek Pool and then threading through a series of community open spaces - Pfluger Park, Kuemple Park, Pfenning Park and Swenson Park. Small loops and trail spurs reach into the surrounding neighborhoods, inviting residents onto the trail to walk, run, bike, walk their dogs, and enjoy nature.
Park at Northeast Metropolitan Park (15500 Sun Light Near Way, Pflugerville, TX) but there may be fees for that. You can find the fee schedule on the Travis County Parks website. You can also park in the small lot in Bohls Park (200 Immanuel Rd, Pflugerville)
