Boggy Creek Greenbelt and East Austin Volksmarch
Saturday, February 17, 2018
Boggy Creek Greenbelt is a linear park that meanders through the heart of
East Austin. The trail passes trees and vegetation typical of Central Texas.
The routes venture out into surrounding neighborhoods that were historically
populated by African Americans. The walk emphasizes Black history and
exemplifies changes that showcase current gentrification of the area.
Both the 5k and 10k routes are flat and rated 1A. Each route goes through
Boggy Creek Greenbelt on a dirt/crushed granite trail, continues on to
Rosewood Park, and then to adjacent neighborhoods on city streets. The 10k
continues and includes the Carver museum, schools, and universities to
spotlight East Austin's Black history.
