Austin's most recognized and popular recreational areas, Town Lake at Lady Bird Lake, is a runner's dream come true. This 10-mile hike-and-bike trail; a lush, urban path that meanders along the water's edge and passes by skyscrapers, neighborhoods, ball fields and cultural attractions.
Start your run in the early morning and watch the sun rise as a pack of runners (training for an upcoming race) zooms by you while completing their workouts. If a lunchtime run is what's in store, share the trail with runners that prefer fresh air and nature as their nourishment during their lunch break. If an after-work run suits your schedule best, watch as Austin's dynamic and young professionals leave their desks and tie on a pair of "runners" to take on the trails (and for a little eye candy) to de-stress and stay in shape. Austin isn't called one of the healthiest cities in the US for nothing.
Whatever the time that you explore this beautiful trail, you will thank yourself for doing it!
