This West Austin trail is located right on the Colorado River! While the trail system is only near 4 miles long it is well worth it!  What is unique about this trail system is the diversity of terrain. While the trails close to the river are flatter and mostly dirt and lined with Pecan trees, the trails further inland are rockier and more technical and include some elevation change.
