“Scenic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

Really nice place to take a walk, or a more serious exercise route. The trail along the river is nice and wide, and there are dogs everywhere (but people are pretty diligent about picking up after their pets). Some cool statues and landmarks to see along the way, and a gorgeous view of downtown Austin.

“The best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

The Hike and Bike trail is a wonderful place to run or walk. It is a safe place where you can walk a 3, 6 or 10 mile loop! Great scenery too!

“Much to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Very pleasant. Wide enough for bikers and walkers and runners, of which there are many. Fun to watch the dogs run loose in the dog park. Enjoyed the water stops! Thanks! Much to watch as you are getting some exercise.

“A great walk or run in downtown Austin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

This crowded bike/hike path is used by everyone from Austin law makers and power brokers (you might even see Rick Perry) to students and soccer moms. Its scenic and winds it way along the shore of Town lake. There is also rentals of canoes and kayaks if you want to get away from the crowd and get onto the water.

“Very popular place to hike and bike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

We hired bikes from Barton Springs Bike Rental, which has convenient nearby access to the trail, and set off for a loop around the lake. This was on a Thursday morning, and we were pleasantly surprised to see how many people were using the trail. Couples strolling, joggers, dog walkers, cyclists, moms with strollers, all out enjoying the sunshine and this great city resource. The loop around the lake goes a shade over 10 miles, if you go all the way to the dam at the end of the lake, and you get to see built up areas, open parkland, quiet city streets, busy freeways - the whole gamut of life in Austin. If we lived in the city rather than being here on vacation, we would be using this trail a lot
