Our Programs

The current Shoal Creek Trail is a 3.9 mile trail that follows Shoal Creek from 38th Street to Lady Bird Lake, providing a pathway for cyclists, walkers and runners. Shoal Creek is an 11-mile urban stream, beginning at Highway 183 and flowing into Lady Bird Lake. The Shoal Creek and Trail remain a green oasis embedded in Austin’s quickly changing landscape.

Shoal Creek Conservancy envisions a continuous network of green spaces stretching throughout the watershed, connected by hike-and-bike trails in a healthy habitat. With more green space and a greener built environment, native plants and animals will flourish. Restored, enhanced, and celebrated, Shoal Creek will shine even brighter.
