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.

Such an unexpected part of central Texas. On the trails, you almost forget you’re in Texas altogether. The forest is beautiful, especially in the fall and during spring when the flowers are in bloom. The cliff overlooks on the Brazos River are neat, especially if you hike around the fencing. There are trails of all difficulty levels which are marked similarly to ski slopes, but make sure you have a trail map/picture of the trail map handy as it is easy to get lost! I highly recommend checking out the trails if you are in the Waco area, it is definitely worth it!
