“Big crowd out enjoying the trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

We rode our bikes the whole route when we were visiting Austin ...such an asset to the city. We liked the fact that there were maps along the route.

“Year round fitness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

The hike and bike trail, also known as Lady Bird Lake Trail (after Lady Bird Johnson, who began the beautification efforts in the early 1970s), is a scenic, easy and enjoyable running, jogging, and walking trail in the heart of Austin, Texas. There are 4 bridges crossing the lake, enabling you to take on as small or as large of a loop as you like. Parking is in various smaller lots scattered at the periphery, and the largest lot is on the north side of the lake near Austin High School. There aren't any restaurants or shops along the trail - it's scenic and understated. Water is provided by a local running supply store at points along the trail, but if you want to be sure to have water, bring your own. There is little to no lighting after dark, so complete your run/walk during the day.

“one of the best areas to walk, jog, or bike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

the view of the river and natural areas and the access from downtown. Several hotels have direct access to the trail. The trail is well maintained and enjoyed by locals.

“Fitness haven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

You can't come to Austin and skip the Hiking trail! It's a must see and do while you are in town or even if you are a local. Beautiful trees line the lake and miles of trails are carved along the edge of the waters for running, walking or biking. And if you don't feel like any of the above, feel free to sit on a park bench and watch the white swans. Or rent a kayak or paddle board and cruise the lake, or bring your dog and play at the dog park area in front of the Long Center. Beautiful nature nook in the middle of the city!
