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 (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.
