I rented a bike and spent the morning on the trails. Great park. Plenty of foliage and pull over spots. You can rent paddle boards and kayaks along the trail.

The park and trails are awesome. We walked for hours on these trails. So much to see and do. Great way to enjoy nature, get some exercise and see some of the city.

The heart of Austin itself! The walk circles Ladybird Lake and you can cross at Mopac, Lamar, First St, Congress, IH 35 and Pleasant Vally so your hike/walk can be a 2,4,6,8 or 10 mile walk or anything in between depending on where you cross...More

Great place to relax and get some physical activity. Options for kayaking/paddle-boating are there for a reasonable fee. Can be a bit crowded Saturdays.

This is a quiet comfortable path along the river. There is a Cafe that serves food, beer, and wine. Then there is the bats overthe river at dusk. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.
