147. Spicewood Valley Trail

May 27, 2010

First off, what a week for Austin, Texas. First it is announced that Formula One is coming to Austin, personally I cannot wait, I am gitty excited, like when you first have a crush or something. Second, we are named Best City for the Next Decade by Yahoo.com (thanks for telling me what we all already knew but it is still very exciting!)

Yesterday I took the dog route, I love, love our furry friend but this is a trail that you can get a little more of a workout on. My friend used to live over here so we would go often and I did bring my dog, its just definitely more of hike than Red Bud.

This is a newer trail that was completed in late 2005. This 1.3 mile hike is a great workout, I am fairly in shape but it is enough to get my heart rate up and a fun way to get out of the gym! I am not too much of an expert of all the trails around town, I just got used this one because it was very convenient. It is the perfect not too long, not too short hike for an evening outing with a friend. I would say plan for a little over an hour to complete the hike.

The highpoints are definitely the man-made waterfall and the awesome stonework that you get to see.

Location/Parking:
183 South on Spicewood Springs Road
Right onto Scotland Well Drive
Right onto Middlebie Drive & look for parking
Start of Trail – Just Across the street from Mountain View Park
