The Urban Trails Program creates, promotes, and maintains Austin’s urban trails network. Urban trails are wide, paved trails that are typically physically separated from on-street traffic, built to connect with our sidewalk and bicycle networks and designed to provide safe and comfortable way to walk and bike. Our goal is for this network to help people of all ages and abilities travel from one end of the city to another in a safe and healthy way.

The Urban Trails Program works closely with the community, other City departments, and additional partners to develop and expand our trail network.
