A 10-mile long path along US 183/183 Toll between US 290 and SH 71
The 183 Trail is the newest addition to the Mobility Authority trail system. It offers10 miles of shared use path and 7 miles of sidewalk running along both sides of the US 183/183 Toll corridor, with connections to 290 Trail, the Southern Walnut Creek Trail, the Lance Armstrong Bikeway, and 71 Trail.
Along the trail, users will find trailheads located at 51st Street and Levander Loop at the Colorado River. Both include parking, exercise equipment, picnic tables, and extensive landscaping for the community to enjoy. In development is a pocket park at the northwestern corner of US 183 and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard/FM 969.
Interpretive signs featuring historical and environmental information about areas surrounding the corridor are also in development. These will be found at 12 locations along the corridor. We’re excited to share these enhancements with the community.
Accessing the Trail
Trailheads with parking are located at the 51st Street and Colorado River Trailhead. Connections can also be made from other local trails, neighboring communities, and businesses.
The Montopolis Truss Bridge
Along the trail you’ll find a landmark on the National Register of Historic Places: The Montopolis Truss Bridge. Once the only bridge across the Colorado River in Central Texas, the bridge was decommissioned from vehicular use in 2018, rehabilitated, and now serves as a bicycle and pedestrian bridge and an essential part of the 183 Trail.
