This is a great trail for walkers, runners or bikers. It is paved and smooth and wide enough for passing. It features a beautiful bridge crossing over the South Bosque river. There is a children's playground on the eastern portion of the trail also.

Love walking here and we do the grandkids . Nice wide concrete makes it easy for joggers, strollers and walkers for seniors.

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.

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...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.
