Cameron Park is a fantastic system of trails used by mountain bikers, trail runners, hikers and walkers. Each trail is clearly labeled with a name and difficulty rating like that of ski slopes (Green, Blue, Black Diamond, Double Black Diamond), so you can easily pick the trails that are suitable for you. It is heavily visited but the size often lets you feel like the park is just for you. Recent renovations by the city of Waco have added restrooms, water fountains, eating areas, updated trail maps and activity guides. The park also has a full Frisbee golf course and multiple scenic areas overlooking the Brazos River.
Very well kempt, many trails, well marked, hills, river walk, trees, bamboo groves, an urban oasis.
Great trails, easy to get lost but getting lost means you can drop into a neighborhood. most trails are well marked, others are a little less visible.
Great terrain, some areas get a little challenging but worth it.
Great place to ride for beginners and for the extreme.
Trails are well maintained. Wide variety of terrains.
I ran the river trail from east to west and back. I estimate 5.5 miles. Pretty cliffs. Flat not too flat. Can't get lost. River was pretty. Saw a few boats. Mostly shady.
I used to think this was a 5 star hike before I actually started hiking elsewhere in America. Never the less, it takes nothing away from the trail. I really like it! there are a ton of different variations you can mix and match.
Good enough to drive 70 miles, we love it, well maintained, well marked, even plotted on Google Maps if you loose your bearings. Many levels, from easy riverside strolling to heart pounding hills. Big enough to enjoy nature, traveled enough to feel safe. Multiple visits and we are still discovering.
