I am relaxing near the Colorado River at a little known section of Woodlands Park. The main part of the park has some nice facilities, but if you wander towards the lake and cross a small bridge, you will find a peaceful place on the river. Picnic tables, cool breezes, shady trees, watercraft passing by, and a nice view are all to be discovered and enjoyed here. If you need one of the best stair climbing trail workouts in Austin, then check out the River Place Nature Trail, just across the street. I haven’t hiked that one in a while, so I need to return soon on a non-relaxing day to take on its challenges.
