Spring is right around the corner and we can’t wait to hit the trails! If you’re an Austinite, you may know from experience that there is nothing quite as rejuvenating as a spring hike. From beautiful overlooks to challenging hiking trails, Austin’s got it all. We can’t wait to shake off the cold and get out and active on one of Austin’s many beautiful trails.
Riverplace Natural Trail – With lots of stairs that call for rigorous climbs, this trail is a bit challenging! You can enjoy the sounds of tricking water and beautiful hill country views while you catch your breath.
St. Edwards Park – Looking for a quick hike? This is the trail for you! We recommend this trail for those of you with kids because it’s not too challenging but still offers beautiful sights.
McKinney Falls State Park – We love this trail because of the beautiful river it features. Great for all skill levels, this hiking trail is exactly where you want to be a on a beautiful day.
Sculpture Falls Hike at Barton Creek – It’s called Sculpture Falls because it features a waterfall (woo woo!). If that’s not as cool to you as it is to us, then maybe the fact that you can bring your dog along will get you excited.
Mount Bonnell – Greeted by a long staircase, this overlook is worth the climb. Although it does offer a short trail, this spot is more of a tourist destination than hiking trail, but this doesn’t mean it’s overrated though! Take the trek right before sunset for a breathtaking view.
