On this tour, join representatives from The Trail Foundation and the City’s parks department to explore the Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike trail along Lady Bird Lake. This beloved lush, urban path meanders along the water’s edge and passes by skyscrapers, neighborhoods, ball fields and cultural attractions in the heart of downtown Austin. With more than 1.5 million visits a year, the 10-mile hike-and-bike trail is Austin’s most recognized and popular recreational area. The tour will discuss the fascinating history of the trail, recent improvement projects, and how it functions today for both recreational and transportation purposes.
