Austin’s Trail Network Needs Your Vision

For the past twelve years there’s been a small but growing effort to increase the number and variety of hike and bike trails in Austin.

While Town Lake Trail is the most famous, Barton Creek Greenbelt the most ridden and floated, and Shoal Creek the oldest, there is a growing movement to link these and other portions of our community together with longer distance trails that more people in greater numbers can use daily.

So, if you haven’t yet heard about the Northern and Southern Walnut Creek Trails, the Town Lake Boardwalk, the Walk for a Day trail, the Cap Metro Rails with Trails study and the Austin to Bastrop River Corridor, you are about to.

We think its time to take the effort up a notch and support those few individuals representing city, county, non-profit, and advocacy groups as well as many, many volunteers who have been working to make these bigger visions happen.

We want to build a map and provide information as well as updates on these and many other projects. We’d like to provide this information on our web site as well as in print. We want to market the vision, support the efforts that need our help and raise funds for signage, seating, shade and other amenities that will improve this planned network.

Can you help us? We’re initially looking for folks who have expertise in mapping and design to help us create the first version of our web pages and printed materials. We’re also looking for help in brainstorming marketing concepts. Please email or call, we’d be happy to have your help.
