The Country Club Creek Trail (CCCT) is a multi-phase trail project located in Southweast Austin. It was originally identified and partially constructed by the South East Austin Trails and Greenways group. Currently the Urban Trails Program is working to design and construct the CCCT from Burleson Road to Ventura Road and is planning for Phases 2 and 3 from Burleson Rd to Oltorf St.
From the Eastlink Trail website: “EastLink is a series of proposed improvements to connect 4.7 miles of trails in Central East Austin – from Bartholomew Park to Lady Bird Lake. Ultimately EastLink can become a treasured recreational asset, as well as an alternative to driving. This is a citizen-based initiative to repair old paths, and in some cases build new paths for pedestrians and cyclists. EastLink will help connect people to places in safer, healthier ways.”
Funded for Preliminary Engineering Report, by the 2016 Mobility Bond, the La Loma Trail will provide East Austin residents and the neighbohoods near the proposed trail with crucial connectivity to the Southern Walnut Creek Trail and Eastside Memorial High.
In order to address traffic congestion in the MoPac corridor, the City of Austin is partnering with the Capital Area Metrolpolitcan Planning Organizations and the State of Texas on the MoPac Mobility Bridges Project. The project includes 3 phases totaling approximately 2 miles of bicycle, pedestrian, and motor vehicle mobility improvements in the MoPac corridor from near Loop 360 to Southwest Parkway.

Boggy Creek Trail is part of the Red Line and the Eastlink trail systems, and is located in Southeast Austin.

Urban Trails Program is currently coordinating several projects to improve and extend the Shoal Creek Trail System. First developed in the 1960s, the existing Shoal Creek Trail follows Shoal Creek for four miles, from Lady Bird Lake to 38th Street. Once projects are completed, the Shoal Creek Trail System will extend from Lady Bird Lake to Highway 183. Learn more about Shoal Creek Trail System here.
The Hill Country Conservancy (HCC) and the City of Austin are working together to design and build the Violet Crown Trail (VCT), a regional trail system that will begin at Barton Springs Pool in Zilker Park and wind more than 30 miles south into Hays County. The VCT will connect neighborhoods with parks, pools, libraries, schools and shopping centers and create new terrain for hiking, running and pedaling.
The Urban Trails Program is currently developing the Walnut Creek Trail System. Once completed, this 19-mile trail network will connect the Govalle Neighborhood Park in East Austin to the Balcones District Park in North Austin, along with many other parks, neighborhoods and landmarks along Walnut Creek. Two sections of the Walnut Creek Trail System are being developed through the 2016 Mobility Bond. Learn more about the Walnut Creek Trail System here.
The YBC (Y at Oak HIll to Barton Creek) Urban Trail would connect much of the Oak Hill to the Barton Creek area of Austin. Not only will the trail be a great asset for connectivity in this area, it will also build upon the existing Mopac Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridges and provide a safe, off-street route from Oak Hill to Downtown Austin for people of all ages and abilities in this region. The YBC trail has received 2012 Bond Funding for preliminary engineering and design. Construction funds for this project have not yet been identified.
