Lakeway has built out several trails that are accessible to the public featuring a variety of trail surfaces. They range from doubletrack and crushed stone jogging trails to singletrack with some technical climbs. Two of the three trails are located next to each other with the third being a little over a mile away, so you have to add some street/jogging trail mileage to your ride.
