Best Reason To Take A Hike

Austin Metropolitan Trails Council

A coalition of 25 organizations and governmental agencies, the AMTC has been working for more than two years to coordinate a trail system in the Austin area. The group won nearly $7 million in federal and local funds for trail construction and maintenance in 1994, and is pushing for a $20-25 million bond package to add another 35-50 miles of trails. This summer, the AMTC released a 206-page Vision Document, which identifies 70 potential hiking trail corridors and greenbelts in the Austin area.
