Austin , TX 78748
This 5K/10K walk is rated 1C. Mary Moore Searight Park is located on 344 wooded acres in south Austin and borders Slaughter Creek. About 2/3's of the 5K is on asphalt. The remainder is on a dirt trail with tree roots and some rough gravely areas. The 10K includes the 5K and then follows a dirt equestrian trail rarely used for that purpose which has a few more tree root and gravely areas. The routes go to and along Slaughter Creek for a short distance with the 10K going briefly into a neighborhood park. About a half of the trail is shaded. The trail is rated 1 because it is relatively flat and elevation gain/loss does not exceed 500 feet. The C rating relates to some rough stony areas and prominent tree roots found on both the 5K and 10K routes. B Award is available.
