Southern Walnut Creek Trail.


The Southern Walnut Creek Trail is Austin’s first Urban Trail. The trail is open for public use and is over 7 miles of concrete trail. There are several creek crossings and trail heads throughout the length of the trail. In 2004, Congressman Lloyd Doggett, an avid cyclist and member of the Congressional Bike Caucus personally obtained Committee approval for the trail. Additionally, Robin Stallings with BikeTexas helped fund the trail as part of the reauthorization of national transportation legislation.
