Southern Walnut Trail opens

Monday, October 27, 2014 by Elizabeth Pagano

Austin celebrated the opening of the Southern Walnut Creek Hike and Bike Trail over the weekend. The 10-foot-wide trail runs from Govalle Park to Johnny Morris Road and is about 7.3 miles in length. The project was funded by an $8.08 million TxDOT grant, along with $2 million from the Parks and Recreation Department and additional funds from 2006’s trail-bond program. More information and a map of the trail can be found here.
