@cmfletcher Thanks for reaching out!

We connected with our Austin team and their first suggestion was the Town Lake loop, which it sounds like you have already done. They also had a couple more suggestions:

  • The Shoal Creek Trail. It is a less crowded urban trail that runs about 4 miles from the river up to 38th street right through the heart of Austin, but sill manages to feel secluded.
  • A more rugged trail option would be the Barton Creek Greenbelt. It is a natural, shady, rocky trail following Barton Creek (seasonal flow) for 7 miles from Zilker Park right next to Barton Springs Pool.

Hopefully this gives you some new ideas for places to run!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
