Cars will be your common companion along much of the route. Traffic noise is ever apparent, but this trail is a convenient way to get down to the Town Lake hike and bike trail.
Walked the trails of Lake Park and then the connecting area north to the Best Buy. The weather was fairly pleasant today so I thought I get some walking in before lunch. Not sure if all of those areas should be treated as one trail or not.
In addition to the ubiquitous ducks around the pond I spotted a small flock of green parrots, who must be the descendants of escaped pets. Not native, but still more pleasant than the grackles!
I was surprised to find no marker earlier than 1982 here. Given the location and extrance I was expecting some more plots for individuals laid to rest here long before the nearby dam was built.
Traffic noise from 620 is a constant companion, but there's a nice view of the Hill Country off the back of the property.
Nice little trail system in an area outside of Austin without much of a choice. Coppertone and I hiked every trail segment, though GPS problems resulted in us losing all of the Orange Route trail segment somehow.
With the recent rains there were a couple of segments, particularly in the northern Orange and Red Trails that werevery wet from flowing water. In one case the water flowing down a trail leading to a creek made it look like a creek tributary rather than a trail!
We also suspect that some frogs along the creek greatly appreciated the recent rains. They making quite a noise in spots.
