The Shoal Creek Greenbelt is not surprising by any accounts, but it is convenient. It's the main artery through town from my house to Town Lake. That's enough of a reason to ride it. The greenbelt is basically a jogging path from about 38th street down to the lake. Currently it is under some construction - there has been damage from floods in the past.
