Do you know if any of Austin's parks or trails have outdoor fitness / parcourse facilities? These are generally trails with stations along the way consisting of parallel bars, chin-up station, etc.

I've heard that the Shoal Creek Trail has three stations (which ones?) where it nears 30th Street, but so far that's all I've got.

Thanks!

The Williamson County Regional Trail running alongside Brushy Creek Road does, near the Parmer intersection. I haven't paid attention to what's there, but I do know they have fitness stations.

There's a few pull-up bars and benches in a small area where the trail around Town Lake crosses the 1st street bridge on the South side of the river.

Some more:

The well-maintained trail around the office complex "The Terrace" at the northeast corner of south 360 & Mopac.

The Dick Nichols Park trail (concrete surface, so maybe not so fun to run on, but several stations)

Across the street, the Western Oaks Hike & Bike trail between Beckett and Davis.

This one is pretty nice and only lightly used.

Riata Park in NW Austin also has a station with several apparatus available (pull up bars, sit up incline, etc) along a roughly 1/2 mile gravel/caliche (mainly) trail that goes around a "lake" (glorified retention pond if you ask me, but there you go). You can spot it easily from Riata Trace Parkway. If you have kids, they have a play ground and they can feed the ducks.

Or you could get off your ass and do it yourself.

Perhaps the exercise would do you some good.

There's also a work out station at Mueller Park. They have chin up bars, sit-up benches, stretch bars, and a running trail.
