Great hike near austin downtown

It is an easy trail to hike. Excellent for a weekend walk or running. You can also walk across the creek halfway down the trail.

If there is actually any water in the creek then it is nice to take a hike for a mile or two otherwise it is just a bunch of creepy hippies hanging out smoking week or panhandling. It's also a favorite spot for local dog owners to bring their pet to go #2. Not the best smelling place to be... More

This park is a weird shape (long and thin), as it runs parallel to Lamar so not ideal for some activities, but has some great trails and is one of the free Frisbee golf courses in Austin.

This has to be my most favorite place in Austin. It is so gorgeous and peaceful. Such a great hike, so beautiful. It's closer to the city, but far enough to be beautiful.

Pets allowed. Several families with children were there as well. Hint- go to the bathroom BEFORE! Small outhouse looking one available at entrance. Enter... More

A relatively easy walk with only a little clambering over rocks down to the creekbed. On the day we were there, the sun was out, the water was relatively high, and the place was not crowded. There are nice rocks to sit on and watch the creek flow by. I'm told that sitting is less pleasant when the water is... More

This 7.9 mile trail has many access points in neighborhoods and off highways. The trail begins just outside of downtown past Zilker Park. There are wooded hiking trails, nice swimming areas, runnning triails, and picnic spots.

Interesting just to walk around and share the space with joggers, dog walkers and families having a relaxing time. Nothing breathtaking, but worth it to take an hour out of a busy day. Bike hire available and would have liked some time to explore that option
