1. Lady Bird Johnson Lake Walk, Jog and Running Trail
Lined by shady trees, the 10 miles of trail are primarily crushed gravel, with concrete in some places. The most popular meeting spot for weekend warriors who frequent the trail is “the rock,” near the north end of Mopac Bridge. Mile markers start at Auditorium Shores and head west. Each of the five bridges is passable and water fountains are located approximately every .75 miles and restrooms every 1.5 miles.
2. Mountain Bike at Reimer’s Ranch
Originally a rock climbing and hunting ranch about 20 minutes from Vintage Villas. The trails are fast with clean lines, broad switchbacks and open spaces. The ground is very open, so be sure to not only bring water with you but also keep some in a cooler back at your car. Dehydration is very easy out here with all of the direct sunlight. Remember that you are sharing the trail with livestock in several places!
3. Lake Travis Zipline Adventures
Spend three hours or so on the five different zips that are the longest zipline in Texas. If you are between 70 and 250 lbs and are ready for high speed fun, this could be exactly what you are looking for.
4. Sky Dive Temple
For about $180 you can jump from an airplane at 13,000 feet. Sky Dive Temple is about an hours drive from Vintage Villas north on I-35. New planes, higher altitude jumps and very competent instructors are why I would recommend this sky diving location. Definitely call before you commit the day due to wind conditions.
