The Hike & Bike Trail

What creates the Austin feeling of community? Places to congregate! The Hike & Bike Trail around Town Lake is a great place to meet and hang out with friends. Good parking place: under the MoPac bridge in Zilker Park. The "lake" is really the dammed-up Colorado River -- all the lakes in Texas are man-made. Canoes can be rented at Zilker Park. Check out the boating club on the north side of the hike & bike trail:
