The Trailhead Park Trail is a scenic hike outside of Austin, Texas.

This 4.5 mile hike is enjoyable for kids, hikers, trail runners, and dog walkers. The trail is open for use year round, and wildflowers are abundant in the spring. There are some unique caves along the trail to look at and explore. This is a relatively quiet trail - a perfect option for anyone looking for a quick, serene hike. The trail is a bit rocky and rooty, so wear shoes with ankle support.
