Brushy Creek Regional Trail

Brushy Creek Trail

August, 2018 by sue.song

I love the trail! I live nearby and would bike along the trail a couple of times each week. The wildlife we can see around the main trail- deer, grey heron, geese, ducks, et cetera, makes me miss them and want to see them often.

One special spot I‘d highly recommend you visit at dusk, where you can view dozens of grey heron perched on a couple of trees standing in the lake right to the east side of the Parmer bridge at Brushy Creek. The scene is quite spectacular. You can bike pretty close to the trees and heron by following the small path underneath the bridge from the sports complex, in the opposite direction from the railway.

Brushy Creek Trail & Cyclists

June, 2018 by mcd.heather69

I depend on this trail for much needed daily walks but am slowly beginning to avoid it as there's too many times I've been almost run over by cyclists. Avoid the off-the-path trail which runs along the creek on the weekends as there are too many cyclists and they'll expect you to get over and stand in thigh-high weeds for them. Also, some race down steep slopes so fast that it will be impossible for them to stop for a pedestrian. The path along the creek is better on the weekdays. Pedestrians really need to keep their wits about them and listen and watch for cyclists coming from behind or in front as many won't be watching for pedestrians.

Randy Morrow Trail

Randy Morrow - Biking

June, 2018 by asphaltman1992

I will first say this: If you are a beginner, this trail is not for you! (at-least the full length isn't) -- I consider myself an avid rider, and I must admit, this trail was a tough one!

There is many steep levels, both asphalt, and crushed granite. You have to be prepared to go uphills, and often!

The views are what made it though! You start off at a park scene, and end up at the beautiful Lake Georgetown. (depending on where you start).

This trail is a must ride for avid trail riders.

Brushy Creek - Biking

April, 2018 by asphaltman1992

I absolutely love this trail! I used to live directly on the trail-path, and I would ride my bike on the trail daily. I recently moved, so I cant ride it as often as I used to, but let me tell you, I do every chance I get!

The main trail has many trail paths (off the main path) that allow you to enjoy a rugged (mountain bike experience), but it also features a great concrete (Main Trail), with some areas being crushed stone; which allow you to speed ride comfortable.

The scenery is what originally got me! Some areas are wooded, with a creek running beside you, and some areas have a lake, parks, bridges; its quite the outdoor experience.

This trail is a must ride, if you haven't already!

Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail

Great Trail, BUT...

October, 2017 by aseasyas123

I live in Houston and I've heard a lot of great reviews about this trail. Finally me & my wife drove almost 6 hours round trip and rode this trail on 10/21/2017 and here is my thought about this trail.
1. The length of the trail is great and same as the scenery.
2. The best part of the trail is the boardwalk and the Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge.
3. My wife complains about the why the trail is not paved, it was too dusty.
4. SIGNS! The trail need a lot of signs especially the east end of the lake (Longhorn Dam & Holly St.). We went over to the east side of the S Pleasant Valley Rd. because there was no sigh to give us the right direction and the trail became almost invisible at the baseball field at Riverview St.
5. MAPS! Lacking of the "You Are Here" Maps, we could not get a good idea of which part of the trail we were at.

This could be a 5-star trail if there are enough signs & maps, please improve...

Southern Walnut Creek Trail

Be Careful

August, 2017 by tldix1958

Great trail BUT please be careful! A couple of bikers were assaulted this morning by a man on a mountain bike. He was acting bizarrely they said. Please be aware of what is going on around you!

Southern Walnut Creek Trail

Very good!

July, 2017 by melbxj

The trail is shaded in most places, meandering through nature on either side. Excellent signage is provided along the trail.

Highly recommend.

Southern Walnut Creek Trail

Very nice trail !

February, 2017 by campbell_tl

I rode this entire trail round-trip three times in one week and found it to be a very nice bike trail. 99.5 % of the concrete joints are barely noticeable, some are slightly rough, and 15 - 20 require some finesse- but none were rim-benders. The trail is lightly used on weekdays and it can get busy on weekends. At the north end of the trail one can ride another mile north on county roads and find the Manor Expressway "Shared Use Trail". On the south end the trail easily connects to the "Lance Armstrong Bikeway" on 5th Street- so the Walnut Creek trail can be a very nice segment of a much larger system in Austin. The trail does have some fairly steep hills that will be very hard to climb with a single speed bike. While it has many flat and easy sections, it also has some sections that are not for beginners- at least not on a busy day. I have ridden many trails around the country and it really doesn't get much better than this, especially considering the overall (constantly improving) bicycle route situation in the Austin area.
