Hidden away in the wooded hills northwest of Waco lies Meridian State Park, a haven for nature lovers and fishing enthusiasts. The park's 72-acre lake offers fishing in addition to swimming, and no-wake boating. A hiking trail encircling Lake Meridian features limestone outcroppings with fossils, a scenic overlook and aquatic vegetation. Birdwatching is excellent and there is a good chance of seeing the rare Golden-cheeked Warbler.


Well worth the trip! I didn't do the smaller side trails due to the large family crowds. But the loop was peaceful, shaded in most areas, and had enjoyable views.

We did the smaller trails with our 2 month, 2 year and 8 year olds. It was a lot of fun.

No mountain biking allowed. Hiking only trails. Looked great, but couldn't use :/

I ran every trail in park. Had to connect some with the roads. Really lovely quaint park. Lake was beautiful. So peaceful here. Trails were mix of rocky and smooth. I really liked it and will return. Good wildflowers too.

Walked with Bella Trey mica Whitney George and Ethan

The only bad thing I really have to say is that the trail is poorly marked. Other than that the hike was pretty good, it was challenging enough to get my heart beat up and the scenery was nice.

road biking

I'm a fan of "diamond in the rough," spots and the kayaking this was one. I think it's great; mountain biking around the lake was difficult in certain areas, because I think it's for hiking only? Really had to use precision on loose rocks, but my 26 held up fantastic. I'm going back adapt.
