walking trails in south austin

Austin is a great place to take a walk. Plus, our South Austin apartments are perfectly situated near some great walking trails that make it incredibly easy to exercise while social distancing. Next time you want to take a stroll, check out these great spots.

Dick Nichols District Park

The trail at Dick Nichols District Park loops around the park’s perimeter. The park is only 6.2 acres, which makes the trail a little over a mile long. This flat and wide concrete trail meanders through the beautiful native landscape, making it an easy trail for people just beginning an exercise regimen.

McKinney Falls State Park

If you want to leave Austin’s metropolitan feel for a place with rugged beauty, take a short drive to McKinney Falls State Park. It sits along the eastern bank of Onion Creek across from Jimmy Clay and Roy Kizer Golf Courses. The park has several trails where you can match your hiking prowess to a trail’s difficulty. The 2.8-mile Onion Creek Hike and Bike Trail offers a hard surface conducive to strollers and road bikes.

Circle C Ranch Metropolitan Park

The trails in Circle C Ranch Metropolitan Park have a suburban vibe. They wander around youth soccer fields and parallel major surface streets. It’s a great place for a long walk or jog because you can go a far distance before doubling back.
