The Colorado River Walkers will be hosting a traditional walk on Saturday, September 25th, in southeast Austin. We will be starting the walk in Dick Nichols Park at 8011 Beckett Road, Austin, TX 78749. From there, the route goes along the Violet Crown Trail, into neighborhoods, and into the Karst Preserve at Western Oaks.
The 10k walkers also take the Violet Crown Trail to the Whirlpool Cave Preserve, and they walk by the Learning Tree and through part of the Latta Branch Greenbelt.
The picture above shows (left to right) Mary, Carol and Rick by the opening to the Whirlpool Cave.
Please see the brochure below for all the details on this walk.
And below are a few more pictures from the trail.
We’ve enjoyed exploring this area and hope that you will enjoy it, too!
