4 Great Jogging Trails by Our New I35 South Apartments

If you're a fan of the outdoors, jogging is one of the best ways to get fit while seeing the natural beauty of Austin. It's no wonder that Austin has frequently been ranked among the fittest cities in the nation. Residents of our modern Farmhouse apartment community have several convenient parks and green spaces to choose from, all within a short drive. Here are four great jogging trails to check out near our brand new apartments in South Austin:

Lady Bird Lake Trail

Perhaps the most iconic trail in Austin, Lady Bird Lake Trail stretches 10.5 miles around the Colorado River. More than 30,000 runners per day are attracted to the river views, shady greenways, and boardwalks. Because of this trail's length and numerous access points (including one near Interstate 35), there are options for longer or shorter jogs depending on your desires.

Slaughter Creek Trail

This five-mile South Austin trail is a prairie loop inside the Slaughter Creek Preserve, with expansive fields of wildflowers as well as wildlife and even horseback riders. To access this trail, park in the free lot inside the Circle C neighborhood, near the creek off FM 1826. It connects with the trails in Mary Moore Searight Metropolitan Park if you want to experience even more of South Austin's green space.

McKinney Falls State Park

This beautiful state park located in Southeast Austin features two dedicated jogging trails: Onion Creek Hike and Bike Trail and the Homestead Trail. These are a great choice if you're looking for a vigorous workout, since both feature substantial elevation gains and a range of terrain. You'll find waterfalls, bald cypress trees (including one of the oldest on public land), and historic Austin landmarks.

Barton Creek Greenbelt

Located in the heart of Austin not far from our apartments and beginning at Zilker Park, this 7.25-mile trail travels through forested areas, limestone cliffs, and waterfalls. As a shady respite that's easy to access from almost anywhere in the city, this jogging trail was named one of the top ten places to run in Texas.

Our brand new apartments in South Austin feature architecture inspired by classic American farmhouses. You'll enjoy open floor plans, luxury amenities like a rooftop deck, skyclub, and fitness center.
