MoPac Express Lane Shared Use Path Description

This shared use pathway is part of the effort to increase bike and pedestrian safety and access across Central Texas. The concrete path exists in two as-yet separate segments of trail: the longer segment is over 2 miles long and sits on the west side of the expressway, starting from the Northern Walnut Creek Trail intersection and heading south. The trail is wide enough for two cyclists or several pedestrians traveling side by side. It provides connections to apartment complexes to various types of businesses. This segment ends at the intersection with North Capital of Texas Highway. 

The second segment starts further south, at the end of Neils Thompson Drive on the east side of the expressway. It takes users under US -183 and then starts to follow Research Boulevard up to Shoal Creek Boulevard. 

The MoPac Express Lane Shared Use Path 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 Crestview/Highland Urban Trail, the Northern Walnut Creek Trail, the MoPac Express Lane Shared Use Path, and the EastLink Trail.

The trail is well-signed throughout and easy to follow. Note that there is little to no shade on available so keep that mind when heading out on sunny days.
