A wonderful path through the Spring Lake Park. Accessibility: This asphalt and concrete trail is estimated to typically be at least 8 feet wide. The slope is moderately steep in one section and estimated to range overall from 0-6% grade. While most of the trail is gentle the steepest section is along the eastern edge of the park. There are several ADA-compliant car parking spots near the trailhead and around the park.

Good trail for getting in a morning run. Scenery is nothing special but it’s well travelled, safe, and with a friendly group of people.

This is an easy trail but in my opinion not very visually stimulating but the pond is relaxing to look at and it's nice to see all kinds of people walking, jogging, biking, or playing frisbee golf. It's a great trail for beginners to prepare you for more moderate trails.

First to Review

I ran around this trail this morning. The Phillip McDougal Trail circles beautiful Spring Lake Park in Texarkana. You'll find lots of people on the trail in the morning and at lunch time. The trail is shared by runners and walkers. I like that when I run the circle you'll see several different types of terrain, including areas with lots of trees, some fields, a playground, and around a beautiful and recently renovated small lake. While the trail is 1.7 miles, if you exit via the north end extension, the trail will lead to a northern exit to the park. Run down the road to the east and you'll meet another short trail under Interstate 30 and around the Texas Visitor's Center.
