South Austin Trail Network (SATN) Trail Conditions

Recommended Posts

Traiks were either nice and tacky, or dusty yesterday.  Rode my tourer on fatty slciks with no problems, although some of the shadier creek crossings were holding water.  Rained overnight though so who knows?

Just rode from the Circle C dam over to the South Veloway trails and Mack Turtle loop.  Only encountered a few small muddy spots along the way and the creek was dry.  Also rode the brand new section of trail and really appreciate whoever did that for us!

South/West bank trails off Slaughter Creek from Mo-Pac east down to the Veloway and Mack Turtle loop are good to go.  South bank trails in Circle C park from Mo-Pac to the west boundary fence (soccer fields) include a lot of greasy areas that are no fun at all.  Looks like some new rain might hit soon so things may change.

Rode Slaughter Creek Trail this morning - the FB page announced last night that it was open.  It shouldn't have been.  It is 'way too muddy.  It didn't quite get to the point where the wheels wouldn't turn, but it was pretty bad.  I'd give it a few more days.

Just rode the north Veloway trails plus the Williamson Creek/Sunset Valley/Whirlpool Cave loop.  90% good although I did have to detour off trail in some sections that remain really waterlogged.  Just last night Slaughter creek had flowing water at the crossings near the Veloway but today they were largely dry.  Great day to ride! 

Also, the bum camp located behind Taco Bell near the William Cannon bridge over at Williamson Creek looks to be gone.  All that remains are several dumpsters full of trash/junk.  However, a new camp popped up under the Williamson Creek bridge at Mo-Pac near Randall's that comes complete with it's own trash and stolen grocery carts.  Seems like we have more folks moving in since that murder happened at the I-35 & William Cannon camp a few months back.

Good conditions tonight. A few wet spots under the bridges. Water is flowing under the Escarpment bridge and over at the soccer fields by fence line. Other than that the creek seemed dry.

Maybe the rain holds up or misses us tomorrow and Thursday night is a thing that can happen.

Any Southies check this section and give updates?  I've never been on the SATN, but I've been invited to potentially ride there this Saturday (depending on weather).  I was going to check back tomorrow and see if anyone has a general trail report.  I live way up north near Brushy Creek so any local reports are appreciated.

I haven't been on it in over a week but Strava comments suggest it was good yesterday.

Took a very light rain this morning as I was leaving for work. Just enough to wet the surface. More in the forecast but I have fingers crossed for Saturday too.

Thank you for the update.  I'll stay hopeful the forecast is wrong for today and tomorrow.....or at the very least it skips over some of the trails.

Well up north I think we had close to an inch or more. How did the south fair?  I feel as this question is almost rhetorical since I’m asking about dry trails in the area.

It sounded bad last night. The LCRA site says we received between a third and a half inch.

I figured that was the case, but I appreciate the confirmation.

Slaughter was AMAZING today. Super tacky dirt in the wooded areas but not enough to stick to your tires........the kind of weather and trail conditions we wait months for.

Strava comments are saying it should be mostly good with some wet spots today. Haven't been able out to check personally but I'm also curious. We got a lot of rain the other day.
