Riverplace Nature Trail

Austin, TX

Great trail....tons of stairs. Good elevation. Even more challenging if you park at the park at the bottom of the neighborhood and run up all the hill, however this is not for the light of heart.

Nice park, fairly well kept trails, nothing too difficult but a nice trek through the hills and over rocks, shaded for a lot of the way. We hiked about an hour and a half before sunset in August and the weather was nice.
Overall a great park for being so close to the city.

Really good trail for walking/running, biking, and horseback riding. It's surrounded by beautiful picturesque nature & trees. Varies trail routes to choose from but not many maps, lakes, rest stops, etc on the way (besides benches). It could've just been the trail route I took. I did encounter a small snake so keep your kids close.

I thought it was a crappy trail. Unmarked and not well kept. The drought eliminated any thoughts of water . Constantly wondering, where do I go?

It was an amazing experience. The scenery was beautiful. It being our first time there it was a bit challenging but we did see lots of people running it. Make sure you take water to keep hydrated we didn't see any water fountains but they do have public restrooms (well kept).

Trail Runners: within 15-20 mins of driving from central Dallas. Easy trails, but your typical mountain bike trail with quick turns, a few up and downs. Trail runs through mostly shade. Quite a few snakes out between 7-12. Today I came across 3 snakes (that i could see)over the entire course. While none were aggressive and happy to be left alone, 2 were directly on the trail and not spotted until after having passed them. 2 of three were same species (copperhead) and the other was a solid dark black or brown. A few snake tips: Treat them with respect and mountain bikers please don't try to piss them off because they will likely strike at the next passerby and it might be a runner. Tell other hikers or bikers nearby to look out for them. Always carry a sharpie and a phone. Circle the area where bitten and record time, continue as swelling increases.
