Fun!

I went down the trail with my children, and we had a good time. At the beginning of the trail there is sufficient parking space, and the trail is easy to walk.

There's not much challenge to the trail, it's mostly flat and only a few miles long. It gets washed out after heavy rain so be very careful on a bike. It follows a muddy little creek.

Meandering through the heart of Nacogdoches and following the Lanana Creek this trail has a special place in my heart. Always nice to get away from the city and back to nature right in the middle of town.

It was a Saturday morning, I was solo and I set out going north from the trail head on Main. I believe it was the trail head, being a weekend visitor my knowledge of that fact is not veritable. I walked/ran for 3-4 miles and then returned the way I had came. What I wish I had known: that parts... More

I visited this lovely trail many times during a recent visit to Nacogdoches and enjoyed the beauty and peacefulness. The trail goes along a creek and is ~ 4 miles one way. A great chance to see the town and to enjoy nature. Much of it is shaded which helps during the summer temperatures

My wife and I love to walk especially in a peaceful, natural setting. A wide variety of trees (pines and hardwoods) mixed with some of the sweetest smelling flowering shrubs I have even smelled made this a very enjoyable trek. The creek changes from a slow moving ditch to a swift moving, rocky stream as you travel from SFA University... More

Stretches miles, more than 80% shaded, some narrow paths, but mostly very wide for four people to walk shoulder-to-shoulder. Easy and relaxing. Stop and watch the creek, there's a few perfect places to read a book, a few benches every other mile or so, some wooden bridges, walk under streets.

This is a very nice and well maintained trail running through the heart of Nacogdoches. I can get muddy during the wetter months. One of the better places to enjoy the outdoor in town.

This easy walk has some pavement and some natural trail with little elevation. Because it may be accessed at many places within the city, any length of the 5 mile trail is your choice. Follows the Lanana creek and includes tall pines, open park, historical locations and a beautiful garden with sculptures. All ages will enjoy this walk.

This is a shady and scenic trail off which you can access the Azalea Garden, or jump onto one of the side streets and visit a business on University or start or end your hike there. This trail is accessible for bikes, but you have to be a pretty good rider and the path is very narrow and steep in... More
