Outdoor Landmarks / Hiking

Highest point in Austin, not much of an actual hike

Pennybacker Bridge (park on side of road, can go up either side of road)

Overlook Trail (3ish miles each way, nice overlook part way, decent elevation change)

Bat Observation

  • Austin has a bat colony. The bats migrate but they like to hang out under the Congress bridge.
  • You can park in a paid lot or take the bus and watch the bats fly sometime around sunset. You can also watch the bats from the river or on top of the bridge.
  • It’s really neat and an Austin staple. Sometimes there are a lot of people.

Parks to wander around near campus

Pet Care Resources

  • Sometimes you can get pet supplies at the APA thrift stores
  • Austin is very dog friendly and has many dog parks

Great web resources
