Resolution Run – Route Description

map_my_route_17The Resolution Run is one of our new routes that combines both city and neighborhood streets with park trail. Starting from the Statesman parking lot the run will kick off passing a familiar statue “Night Wings” on the way down Barton Springs Road. After passing through the dense canopy of pecan trees outside Palmer Events Center the route crosses over South Lamar Blvd. headed towards Zilker Park. At the first traffic light passed Lamar take a left at Uncle Billy’s Brewery & BBQ joint and climb the Kinney Ave. hill (400′ length). At the top, catch your breathe, and continue south in to the heart of the Zilker Neighborhood. It’s a straight shot to the Heather St. where you can u-turn and make it a 4-mile round trip day. If you want loop the course back to the Statesman for a 5-mile trip, hang a right on Heather and travel two blocks to Bluebonnet Lane. The road Bluebonnet Lane will change names to Melridge Pl. then Robert E. Lee Rd. but no turns needed. Robert E. Lee dead ends at Barton Spring Rd., at this intersection cross Barton Springs Road and catch the trail head that runs parallel to the river. At this point the hike and bike trail will take you 1.5-miles all the way back to the Congress Avenue bridge. Stay on the main trail and keep the lake always on your left and you’ll make it back. (paper maps provided at event).

It is our recommendation that participants use sidewalks, pedestrian pathways or hike & bike trails and avoid using the street. Please use caution when crossing streets and only cross at designated cross walks.
