WIMBERLEY VALLEY TRAILS PROJECT
The Wimberley Valley Trails Project is an effort by Hays County and the City of Wimberley to identify routes, study, and design the extension of trails in the Wimberley and Woodcreek areas.
The Wimberley Valley Trails initiative is an effort to develop a multi-year vision to improve connectivity in the City of Wimberley and surrounding areas. This vision includes a system of hike and bike trails, a variety of transportation options, and other strategies to help connect people with nature and link regional points of interest in the community. To pay for these improvements, the City of Wimberley and/or Hays County may apply for a variety of state and federal grants that support community development projects related to trails, job creation, or other safety improvements. It is anticipated that the project would rank very well.
The project has two areas of focus:
Development of a master plan for walking, hiking, driving, and other transportation options connect points of interest including Blue Hole Park, Wimberley Square, and Jacobs Well.
Identify improvements and design sidewalks and trails along Old Kyle Road trail extension and improvements to Ranch Road 2325 from Wimberley Square to the intersection of Ranch Road 3237.
The goals of the Wimberley Valley Trails planning effort are to:
Recommend multimodal options that will improve the quality of life of residents, attract tourists, improve the local economy, and identify strategies for local coordination, project prioritization and funding for local governments. Community engagement will support these efforts and seek support for future pedestrian and bicycle routes and trail connectors
