The Slaughter Creek Trail is now open, the entrance is located at 9901 FM1826. This area is part of the City’s Water Quality Protection Lands and is a sensitive environmental area that is preserved in order to protect and improve the quality of water entering the aquifer.  As with all public lands there are rules that must be followed.

Please take a few moments to read the Trail Rules

The Violet Crown Trail will be opening its Circle C Ranch segment in 2017, but the first six miles – from Zilker Park to Sunset Valley – are already open to the public. Once complete, the 30-mile trail will provide a unique recreational experience as it passes through the urban wildlands of the Barton Creek Wilderness Park, the City of Sunset Valley, Circle C Ranch, and eventually into Hays County.
