Join Hiking with Geeks, Austin for a beautiful 4 mile(s) hike and learn, and meet some fellow geeks!
A docent from the Shoal Creek Conservancy will lead us on an exciting hike along the southern portion of the Shoal Creek Trail. We’ll meet at the North entrance to Pease Park at W 24th Street and will leave the trailhead promptly by 10:10am.
We’ll first explore Pease Park, which is known for its birding, and appreciate the flora and fauna found in woodland, riparian, and grassland habitats. Then we’ll travel south through House Park and Duncan Park and enjoy going back in time as we cross underneath the historic 6th St. bridge and past a historic trestle built in the 1920s. Our hike will return at the mouth of Shoal Creek at Lady Bird Lake.
This hike will take approximately two hours and will be 4 miles round trip. Parking is available at Kingsbury Commons at Pease Park and the surrounding neighborhood.
