Welcome!

Shoal Creek is Austin’s oldest urban trail, and Shoal Creek flows through the heart of Austin, Texas.

Shoal Creek is an 11-mile creek, with 4 current miles of trail following the creek from 38th Street to Lady Bird Lake, providing a pathway for cyclists, walkers and runners. The creek’s headwaters start in north Austin, near Highway 183. An urban stream, Shoal Creek and Trail remains a greenway  embedded in Austin’s quickly changing urban landscape.

The creek meanders through neighborhoods, skirts the campuses of St. Andrew’s Episcopal School and Seton Hospital near 38th Street, borders the western edge of the University of Texas, travels through Pease Park and ribbons through downtown Austin. The mouth of Shoal Creek, and the southern terminus of the trail, is located at Lady Bird Lake.

Shoal Creek Conservancy is a proud steward of Shoal Creek watershed and the creek and trail running through it. We engage in thoughtful public and private partnerships, lead fun and meaningful educational programming, and spearhead on-the-ground improvements that make Shoal Creek and the Shoal Creek Trail safer, more accessible, and more inspiring places to be.
