Boggy Creek Trail System Limits & Overview

The Boggy Creek Urban Trail extends from the Capital Metro MLK Jr. Station to Rosewood Ave; south of Rosewood Ave. the trail is composed of crushed granite. 
Capital Metro MLK Jr. Station to E. 12th Street: an urban trail provides a comfortable space for people walking or biking to enjoy. This portion of Boggy Creek Trail opened to the public in July 2019. 
E. 12th Street to Rosewood Ave: the urban trail becomes a dual-track trail, which allows for separation of people walking from people biking and using other wheeled devices. This portion of the trail opened to the public in Feb. 2021. 

The trail is part of two larger planned trail systems: the EastLink Trail and Red Line Trail. It is also part of Austin Transportation's All Ages and Abilities Bicycle Network
