Need to Know

For more information on the trail and area, visit the city's website.

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.
