Trapped in an urban jungle and dying to run outside? Good news: you don’t have to go far to hit these sweet trails and get in your workout.
Austin packs about 19,000 acres of parks into its city limits—and its surrounding Hill Country is dotted with even more mazes of singletrack. Among the city’s most popular trails is Barton Creek Greenbelt. Its 7.25 miles start in Zilker Park and wind through the city. To find shade in the sun-soaked city, head to the Colorado River at the northwest corner of the city where huge cypress and pecan trees run for miles.
