Austin, TX

Lake Austin Blvd./Scenic Dr.

This is a nice run that provides an idea of some of the hills in the northwest part of Austin. It’s a pretty straight shot out Lake Austin Blvd. (some sections nicer than others), starting at the western edge of the Lady Bird Lake Trail (MOPAC). Pass by the Westfield Golf Course, then connecting to Scenic Drive, with a couple of minor connections to be aware of. If you’re not too sweaty, head into the Contemporary Austin gallery, right by the Westwood Country Club. The run is about 3.8 miles one-way. A great option for longer is to continue out Mt. Bonnell Rd., 3.5 miles to Rt. 2222 and the Cliff Rocks over Lake Austin.
