The Shoal Creek trail is located along the Shoal Creek Greenbelt which stretches the length of central/downtown Austin. It is a 5-mile loop trail following along Shoal Creek. Much of the trail runs through residential area. And though it runs parallel to a creek, itis a city trail and not ideal for nature watching. The trail is moderately trafficked and is mostly paved.

The trail is perfect for walking/running/cycling. It runs through several large areas and Pease Park which are perfect for yoga, relaxing, or bringing the kids or dogs. The trail also features several benches for sitting
