It's been a busy year for our trail system with several ongoing projects aimed at stabilizing our existing trails and adding new features such as improved signage and seating.
We recently wrapped up the work associated with our City of Austin Urban Forest grant which included the placement of new interpretive signage at key locations within the preserve.
Last Spring we learned that we were one of only nineteen organizations statewide and the only organization in Travis County to receive funding from Texas Parks & Wildlife's Recreational Trails program to fund several of our planned enhancements.
As part of the funding request to TPWD, we created the map below to help explain the need and goals of the work, which also help to show the extent of the trail network and access points that already exist at Circle Acres. The general goals include improvements to the three trailheads with new wayfinding signage, seating and lighting, improved grading at the parking trailhead, some additional wayfinding and interpretive signage along the trails, and erosion control particularly for the trail which leads up the steep slope to Atwood Street.
We look forward to sharing progress on these projects when they commence in 2019!
