Brush Country Trail Improvements

Submitted by Westcreek resident Jennifer Voss

Westcreek resident and WNA board member Barbara Huffman is shown above helping to improve the nature trail located at the end of Westcreek Drive. Barb and several other volunteers from the Westcreek Neighborhood Association and Oak Hill Trails Association (OHTA) got together on January 21 to spread bark mulch that had been donated by Davey Trees. Thanks to Barb, Jennifer Voss and her son Quinn, Trudy and David Hasan, John Mendenhall, and OHTA members Tom Thayer and Jim Hinshaw. The huge pile of mulch has now been reduced to just a big pile.

The trail area has been an ongoing project by the Westcreek Neighborhood Association and OHTA. The area is a combination of City of Austin right-of-way, AISD land and private land. The private land consists of the unimproved area behind the duplexes, and no improvements have been made to this area since it is privately owned. Many Westcreek residents and cyclists enjoy this area, since no motorized vehicles are allowed.

More work days will be scheduled in February and March, so stayed tuned for your chance to help out the neighborhood!
