The Dick Nichols Park Trail is a leisurely paved neighborhood park trail.

The Dick Nichols Park Trail is a 1 mile loop neighborhood park trail located in Southwest Austin. The trail is completely flat and is entirely paved. It circles the park and is equally shaded and exposed. It's very kid-friendly and perfect for walking the dog, biking, trail running, hiking, and even rollerblading.

During the spring/summer months the trail is filled with pretty wildflowers. There are several trashcans located along the trail and even some picnic tables, along with a bathroom at the trailhead. Parking is abundant and easily accessible. 

Dogs are more than welcome, but be sure to keep them leashed and clean up after them! Due to the nature of the trail, it is very accessible to those that are handicap.
