About Green Trails
Green Trails is a wonderful neighborhood in Northwest Hills. It’s just west of Hart Lane with Spicewood Springs Road to the north, Mesa Drive to the west, and Far West Boulevard to the south. Because it’s close to Loop 1, access to downtown Austin, or to Round Rock, or to Cedar Park is quick and easy.
Green Trails Neighborhood
Green Trails Homes come in a wide variety of styles and all of them are custom built. The earliest homes were built in the 1970s with most of them being a combination of brick or stone, and cedar. Lots in Green Trails are large, and some have unusual shapes due to the many cul de sacs in this neighborhood. The trees in Green Trails are plentiful, with many live oaks shading the homes as well as the streets.
Green Trails is Convenient
Shopping areas abound in nearly directions. Randall’s and HEB grocery stores are within a mile and Sun Harvest is just over Loop 1. Restaurants are plentiful with Mesa Ranch, Torchy’s Tacos, Boulevard Grill, and Wally’s offering truly Austin dining in all price ranges. The post office is on Far West, as is a public library. Women can exercise at Premier Lady Fitness while both men and women can exercise at one of several other gyms on Anderson Lane, which is the name for Spicewood Springs Road when you cross over Loop 1.
Green Trails Schools
Most of the students in Green Trails either attend Doss Elementary, Murchison Middle School, or Anderson High School. Although none of these schools are actually in Green Trails, they are all within about a mile. The hill overlooking Murchison Middle School is a place where hang gliders used to practice because of the smooth slope and the field below provided the perfect area to learn to “fly.” It’s always fun to see the many community and school activities that Green Trails residents participate in.
