Jordan Cooper is an avid Trail user and active member of Team TTF—a group of seasoned runners and beginners alike who join together to help raise critical funds for The Trail Foundation.

Jordan has lived in Austin’s Barton Creek Greenbelt area since 2010 and is an enthusiastic fan of all the nearby nature trails—especially the Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail at Lady Bird Lake. Jordan finds himself on the Butler Trail frequently in the mornings and evenings, trying to beat the Texas heat as he gets his “miles in.” Most of the time he hits the Trail alone, but he also enjoys going with his wife Amanda.

Jordan usually starts and ends his Trail runs at “the rock” near the Mopac pedestrian bridge. Some of his favorite spots along the Trail include the Pflugerville Pedestrian Bridge, the part of the Trail on the east side just before Longhorn Dam when you’re surrounded by water on both sides, and the Stevie Ray Vaughn statue near Auditorium Shores.

He works as a digital media planner at Umbel, located in the former Seaholm Power Plant building, and first became acquainted with The Trail Foundation when the organization moved its office into the same building as his company. Soon after, Jordan decided to join Team TTF as a way to give back to the Trail that has given so much to him over the years and support the nonprofit organization that makes his time there so enjoyable.

He says he loves having the Trail so close to where he lives and works, and that it is one of his favorite things about living in Austin. He even had his engagement photos taken along the Butler Trail’s scenic paths!

“Since I have been using the Trail for more than eight years, I wanted to give back to this great organization that helps enhance the Trail and keep it beautiful for all to appreciate. I have loved the improvements I have seen to the Trail over the years, like with the new Trail Bridge at Congress Avenue, that make my time on the Butler Trail so immensely enjoyable,” says Jordan.

Jordan already reached his $500 fundraising goal for Team TTF (yay!), but you can still donate to his campaign to help him surpass his goal and raise even more money for the Trail he loves…
