Violet Crown Trail

Save Barton Creek Association is a proud supporter of the Violet Crown Trail, Hill Country Conservancy‘s ambitious project to create the first regional trail system in Central Texas. We have generously given $100,000 to support the efforts of HCC in building this trail.


The Violet Crown Trail will provide a unique recreational experience as it passes through the first five miles of the Barton Creek Wilderness Park, the City of Sunset Valley and eventually into Hays County. Along its route, the trail will connect scenic natural areas to neighborhoods, shopping centers, a library and public parks. Passing near the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, the Violet Crown Trail will then head south, winding through the rolling countryside of the City of Austin’s Water Quality Protection Lands in a uniquely natural setting.

Hill Country Conservancy marshals public and private resources to preserve the natural areas and scenic vistas, aquifers and springs, rivers and streams, working farms and ranches, and the rural heritage of the Central Texas Hill Country for people to enjoy and cherish for generations to come.
