Really interesting trail that follows along the Brazos River. There are two options, a paved, non-scenic trail and then a scenic, beaten path trail along the river. The paved and beaten paths meet up at the end, making a loop if you like. Lots of activity here all days of the week. This trail is part of MacLean Park, where there are basketball, tennis, baseball, etc. courts. There is plenty to do here.

Good trail to get a quick run in. Lots of banana spiders (harmless), so watch for webs while running. Starting and ending at the bridge is roughly 2.25 miles. Spotted a few hogs before, so be aware. There's signs for alligators, but haven't seen any yet. It's mostly flat with a few drops and rises, and not very technical, aside from a few roots. I like it.

my wife and I enjoyed the trail. Make sure you get plenty of mosquito repellent. the first quarter of a mile is out in the open, part of the city Park, but you eventually begin the trail at the bridge. You get to a fork on the trail, you can take the paved or unpaved depending on your preference. We'll definitely return to this trail but once mosquitos are gone.

Great trail. There is a lot of nature to observe along the trail. The trail along the river is particularly enjoyable.

The very slight change in elevation along the nature trail was a nice change to other completely flat paths around. Many many birds out this morning and only saw 1 other person on the trail. I am usually not a fan of in-out paths but this one was well marked and there were many things to look at along the way. Did not feel like you were walking in a city park. Will definitely return.
