Wells Branch to Downtown Austin Commute

60m Ascent
140m Descent

This is the best route I've found for going from Wells Branch to downtown.  I take it once a week and it usually takes 1.25 hours.  I then take the 935 bus home.

The route is hilly at first, but turns in to a gradual descent the closer you get to town.

Take Metric to 183.

Go east along 183 frontage road/sidewalk for .25 miles

Go under 183 at Burnet intersection, into Chili's parking lot. Go north through parking lot, along 183, past Tabu, BagPipes, to McCann Dr.

Take nice ride down hill Shoal Creek to w38th Street.  Go along shoal creek trails for a few blocks until Shoal  Creek Blvd appears again.  Take Shoal Creek Blvd/ W31st to N Lamar Blvd.

Take N Lamar Blvd south (west sidewalk).  At 15th street, find Shoal Creek trail again.  This time take it all the way down to 5th street.  There are stairs at 15 street you can use to exist shoal creek trail.

You can also take Shoal creek trail down to 3rd street or all the way to Lady Bird lake.
