All hail the extended trail

Thursday, July 13, 2023 by Eric Webb

Are the outdoors currently encased in a cage of heat? Yes. Will it one day sound good to spend time in nature? Yes, probably. With that in mind: A celebration has been set to mark the completion of the Violet Crown Trail – North extension project. “The new urban trail extension connects to the 34-acre mixed-use Garza Ranch development on Ben Garza Lane in southwest Austin,” according to an announcement from Hill Country Conservancy. The ribbon-cutting party will happen from 9 to 10:30 a.m. on July 29 at the trailhead at 1200 Home Depot Blvd. Expect Popsicles, a nature walk, a family-friendly bike ride led by Ghisallo Cycling Initiative and music from the Crockett High School band.
