    10 miles of trails border Lady Bird Lake in downtown Austin and serve as a social hub for runners, walkers and cyclists and provides a local respite from the city, without actually leaving the city.

    Go early on weekends to avoid kids, 4-abreast walkers and people with long-leashed dogs.

    Take a stroll - and spend the entire time wishing you had a dog! A great place to walk off the deliciousness that is Austin.

    This is where I take long depression walks. Just kidding but no I'm serious. I notice there's often this one Indian guy (presumably Indian) wearing a head wrap sitting on a bench.

    Best time to visit is early in the morning when it's not too hot out. Sun up is ideal. Have fun!

    If you like running, this is the place to go in ATX. It's close to downtown, easily accessible, & the skyline views are priceless. Visit the water-side trail for a taste of the outdoors in a big city.

    Run as hard as you can but take a second to enjoy a walk across the pedestrian bridge. It. Is. Zen.

    Better be fueling up right after that run, friend. Spot the KIND jeep around town during SXSW for an all-natural, non-GMO KIND bar!

    Control your dogs!! I love our four legged friends, but I have seen 3 people flat out face plant in 3 weeks due to other people's dogs. People and dogs are getting hurt!

    Get out of the bikers' and runners' way if you're just going on a stroll. Austin has a lot of fit people. If you're too slow, you'll incur their Texan wrath.

    Park on the north side of the lake near the Lamar street bridge, next to the new footbridge. The loops are really easy to understand, and make sure to hydrate.

    Great workout for the outdoorsy spirit within all of us. Make sure you know what you're getting yourself into. You don't want to end up running 10 miles instead of the 3 you planned on!
