Southeast Metro Park contains a 2 mile long concrete multi-use trail, which is ADA accessible and is suitable for bicycling and in-line skating.
Perhaps the gem of the park is a 3 mile primitive hiking trail which meanders its way through forested steep hills and valleys, and offers a glimpse of downtown Austin from ridge tops. The trail skirts two ponds and Onion Creek, providing opportunities for wildlife viewing, fishing (catch and release only), and bird watching.
