Off the beaten path, so quiet and a great place to walk and think. I take my doggie with me as she loves the exercise. So happy this was finally completed - it is a regular place for my walks now.

Nice paved hiking and biking trail takes you a couple miles up to the city dump where it dead ends. Great views of fat buzzards sitting on electrical poles will want you to keep your small dogs nearby. Mostly uphill outward from the parking lot, makes getting home easier.

This trail is good for walking/running even riding a bike. The only issue I have is it needs more light along the trail for people who like to walk at dusk.

Bring a strong bladder especially if you carry water for your walk because there are no restrooms anywhere on the trail. The displayed bridge is nice but it's a very small part of trail.

Most Wacoans, and certainly a lot of visitors, don't even know about this trail. It is a beautiful, wide, concrete path that mostly follows the old Cottonbelt RR tracks that have long been removed. Part of it, however, twists and curves up and around the South Bosque river and crosses it on the old trestle bridge, which has been completely... More

This is a well maintained walking trail. It is concrete but passes through beautiful country side. Safe place to walk or bike.

A wide paved trail that is great for walking, running or dog walking. Expect to see others out enjoying this peaceful trail through natural areas.

Great walking trail with great nature views. The walking area is paved and even. Most of the area is shaded by trees.

This is a great place and to take a walk or let the kids ride their bikes where you don't have to worry about being hit by a car. The cement trail is located on the old Cottonbelt Railroad line route, and has pretty bridges overlook the creek. The trail is not long enough to give adult riders a good... More
