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

Runner Notes

Watch for crowds and be respectful of your fellow trail users.

Description

The majority of this trail is on decomposed granite, with small stretches of paved path. While the whole trail is fairly wide, it can be congested during peak hours. To escape the crowds, you can focus your route to the east of the Congress Street bridge.

You can start from an infinite amount of spots, but most will start under the Mopac Bridge. The trail is fairly flat, but there will be a few climbs and descents that visitors will have to navigate.

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."
