An iconic, lush, urban trail that delivers an excellent tour of the great city of Austin.

Features -none-

Family Friendly The boardwalk area is great for a family cruise. This trail passes through many parks for the family to play in.

Overview

If you want to see Austin from a path, hit the Lady Bird Lake Trail. This trail takes you through the famous Zilker Park, past the Stevie Ray Vaughan statue, under the bat bridges, and along the new boardwalk, all while surrounded by Austin's beautiful wildlife.

Description

The majority of this trail is decomposed granite, with small stretches of paved path. It's fairly wide but can be congested during peak hours. To escape the crowds, you can focus your route east of the Congress Street bridge.

You can start from an infinite amount of spots, but most will start under the Mopac Bridge. The path is a great way to get around to some of Austin's highlights. The trail is flat for the duration, though there are a few rises sprinkled in here and there.

History & Background

Town Lake was renamed in 2007 to honor the United States First Lady Lady Bird Johnson. Many locals still call it "Town Lake Trail."
