Welcome!

Shoal Creek is an 11-mile creek flowing through the heart of Austin, Texas and the surrounding 13-square-mile Shoal Creek watershed. The Shoal Creek Trail, Austin’s oldest hike and bike trail and one of the first linear park systems in the country, remains an invaluable greenway embedded in our quickly changing, urban landscape.

Join Shoal Creek Conservancy in celebrating, improving and experiencing this special place.
