Austin Trail of Lights Will be Lit This Year!
For 3 years, Austin Trail of Lights remained dark due to economic reasons. This year, be amazed by the lights and sets that have been created on the banks of Lady Bird Lake. Viewing the lights reflected in the lake is mesmerizing. The Trail is a great family outing and FREE. Food and drinks available. Level ground means this trail is easily navigable.
