6th Annual National Trails Day Fun Run & Celebration!

June 1 @ 8:00 am 11:00 am

Join Hill Country Conservancy for our sixth annual National Trails Day on the Violet Crown Trail!

National Trails Day is a nationwide event held to encourage people to discover their local trails and celebrate spending time outdoors, and what better way to celebrate than enjoying the Violet Crown Trail?

This year’s event features a family-friendly 5k fun run route from the Dick Nichols Trailhead of the Violet Crown Trail in Southwest Austin. Enjoy the route as you please—you can run, walk, roll, or skip—as long as you have FUN! The annual Fun Run promotes health and well-being throughout our community while highlighting the interconnectivity of the Trail between neighborhoods, peaceful wooded areas, convenient urban amenities, and neighborhood parks.

We’re also excited to offer tours of nearby Whirlpool Cave in partnership with the Texas Cave Management Association. If you’re not into going underground, you can still learn all about the cave’s ecosystem at the Whirlpool Patio, which features educational information and fantastic illustrations of Whirlpool Cave and its native critters.

Your registration fee directly supports Hill Country Conservancy and the Violet Crown Trail you love.
