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.
