Comanche Trail Neighborhood Guide


Comanche Trail is a small, upscale neighborhood located around Lake Travis. Some of the homes are waterfront property. The neighborhood is secluded but still close to major shopping and dining areas. The neighborhood dates back to the end of World War II but most of the homes were built since 2000. Though only about 20 minutes' drive from downtown, the neighborhood is not technically part of Austin. Services are provided by the county.

Comanche Trail is a neighborhood of about 6,000 people and 250 homes built along the banks of Lake Travis. The neighborhood was established in 1946-47 with 44 homesites on the lake. That was followed in the next decade with more homesites built on the hills overlooking the  lake.

Many of the initial homes were weekend homes for Austinites and others who lived in the area. Eventually all of the weekend homes were replaced or expanded into full-time residential homes. New construction in the area has continued to the present. About a quarter of the homes are waterfront property, but nearly all homes have lake views. Most of the homes are nestled among the hills and woods above the lake.

The neighborhood is close to Hwy. 2222 and 620, two major thoroughfares in west Austin. It is also close to local country clubs, and restaurants and shopping are nearby in Bee Cave and Cedar Park. Just to the east is Four Points Centre, a 333-acre commercial site that contains shopping, a supermarket, restaurants, retail stores, and medical offices.
