Trails in Austin

“Austin, Texas is an unusual combination of laid back attitude and entrepreneurial energy. Austinites are known for being friendly and non-judgmental; nonconformity and iconoclastic mind-sets are admired and support the unofficial motto, Keep Austin Weird. It’s a quirky city, part hippy, part hipster, with solid doses of music, art, history and business to tie them all together.”   ~ Covingtontravel

Austin is the Capitol of Texas, where the University of Texas is located. Yes, Austin is a city of fit, healthy, and intelligent individuals, what one would expect a city with a combined UT student population over 5,5000.

The 10-mile hike and bike Tail along the Colorado River/Lady Bird Lake is always popular with runners, walkers, and bikers.

Walking along the river and lake, you see how youngsters enjoy paddling on a Saturday morning.
