A new over-the-lake extension completes the 10 mile loop around the Lady Bird Lake trail (without having to cut up to the busy street). The “Boardwalk,” as it is referred to, is in the sun a lot of the time. If it’s a hot, sunny day – you’ve been warned! However, the unobstructed views of downtown are incredible. You can find parking along East Riverside Drive, or on the opposite side of the lake, under I-35 near Festival Beach Park.
