The City of Georgetown is developing a network of trails to showcase the natural beauty of the San Gabriel River. The City Parks Department maintains over 3.5 miles of trail along the North & South Forks of the San Gabriel near the downtown area. On August 20, these trails will be ceremoniously connected to the trails maintained by the Army Corps of Engineers that have long drawn cyclists out to Lake Georgetown.
The new trail has been funded by Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Lower Colorado River Authority, and the City of Georgetown. The new trail project has long been proposed as an important asset to the Georgetown cycling community. Cyclists can now travel from the downtown area out to popular recreation areas on Lake Georgetown along a dedicated cycling facility.
The Goodwater Trail around Lake Georgetown is more than 16 miles long. By connecting this trail to the City trails, Georgetown hopes to attract more cycling events and encourage greater participation among its citizens. A map of the Georgetown network is available, as well as a Williamson County Bike Trails map.
The Grand Opening Ceremony & Tour for the new trail segment will be held Saturday, August 20 at 10:00am under the Park Pavilion behind the Wendy’s Restaurant located at 1102 Rivery Blvd.
