Mostly crushed granite, easy enough to run on and to ride a bike with versitile tires on this trail if it's not too crowded. I've used it since 1980's, and it's changed a lot...been extended and expanded and improved in some areas. I usually choose...More

Austin is one of the fittest cities in the country because of this great spot to get outside and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. The beautiful people are always out in masses. Don't forget to bring you furry 4 legged friend... On a leash please...

"Trail" to me is more like walking inside a jungle or a highly un-improve path. The trail inside the park is very well paved on most of the walk path, and wide, and I cannot find a better word to describe. At 4pm on Sunday...More

It's all pretty much out in the open, so it can get pretty darn hot. It's nice little trek if you follow it all the way around. The fountains are pretty, a hill that gives a great view, and it's also a leash-free zone.

The veloway is a dedicated path just for that: Attraction_Review-g30196-d6157435-Reviews-The_Veloway-Austin_Texas.html Only bikers, rollerskaters, and rollerbladers allowed. It's around 3 miles and paved.
