Description
Has your pooch got a hankering for a good run? If so, a trip to Northern Walnut Creek Trail just might fit the bill. It's the pawrfect place to burn off some pent up energies and have some fun with your best canine pal. 

Northern Walnut Creek Trail is found in Austin's Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park. This section runs from Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park to the area known as Mopac South. This particular trail is only one of four trails within a larger system. Between the four trails there are nine creek crossings. Your main canine squeeze may join you in all areas of the trails and park, but you must keep them leashed at all times. 

This pawsitively awesome trail is of moderate difficulty and is a pawpular spot for peeps looking for a furrific place to take a walk with their pooches. The trail is wide and comprised of concrete. It meanders along a creek and through many forested areas, small parks, and neighborhoods. 

You will discover that this path has a few small inclines at the beginning, but is mostly flat. It is the pawrfect spot for walking, trail running, bird watching, and road biking. To experience the trail at its best, it is recommended that you bring your fave pooch for a run between the months of April and October. To be sure you have access to all the things you might need, bring along some drinking water, cleanup bags, and a snack or two to keep hunger at bay. 

When your day of trail running comes to an end, why not enjoy some of the amenities at Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park? There is even an off-leash dog area where your doggo can make some new canine fur-iends. Other activities in the park include basketball, BMX bike trails, softball, horseshoes, and swimming in the creek.

If you're looking for your next wooftastic hiking spot, plan a trip to Northern Walnut Creek Trail. You'll have a doggone amazing day!
