I love this trail Sept -May! Once I even happened upon a geo cash by accident. It’s very pretty and it feels very safe I like biking or walking it.

Seester time! This is a concrete sidewalk that is over 5 miles long. We parked at Lions Park off of Howard Road. It is a nice path for hikes, joggers and bikers. There is a creek that runs beside the trail with lots of trees. There is a dog park along the way. It was fun to see the dogs playing.
Granite stones are along the path telling you what mike you are at. The trail takes you right into town so bring cash if you’d like to get a cold drink before turning around. You also see the concrete pillars where the old electronic railroad was. That’s all that’s left. Nice trail a d very easy.

Wonderful trail at a traditional park. The trail is concrete but there are short dirt trails just off the sidewalk that are fun. After a ride with the kids you can push them on a tire swing or let them run around the park.

My two daughters (8 & 13) and I enjoy biking this trail nearly every week. We ride from our house through downtown and onto the trail. Paved the whole way, this helps us a lot! Love our town. ❤️

A few seconds of walking and came across a snake, lighting bugs, a big spider, and a frog. Very fun trail will be coming back.

When it is dry, the mountain bike alternative trails are great!

Was looking for a wildflower hike and meant to hike Bardwell Multi-Use Trail near Ennis--but it was closed due to mud and high waters. Took backroads and FM877 to Lions Park entrance of this trail instead--lovely! The farms and wildflowers along 877 were beautiful. And while the trail itself did not present a wildflower hike, it was a scenic, historic and peaceful hike. It was also dry and paved! What a quaint trail. Loved the birdhouses along the way. The rabbit that skittered across our path (and the little garden snake). The farm fields. The dog park with agility course. The parks and historic bridges. How the trail winds through woods....and even along the side of a cemetery. The trail was quiet during the week. We started late so did not get a chance to enjoy a meal in town at the end--next time.

Enjoyed a great meal in downtown Waxahachie and able to walk to the trail. Very scenic!

Flat, wide concrete trail with plenty of shade. Even though I went on a beautiful sunny day, the trail wasn't crowded.

The trail starts at Getzendaner Memorial Park and follows Waxahachie Creek southeast to Lions Park. Sponsored monuments mark the trail every 1/4 mile. They are numbered up to 3 3/4 miles as you head towards Lions Park and keep going up on your return trip. The "FINISH" marker back at Getzendaner is 7 1/2 miles.

I actually started in the middle from a parking lot near the historic Rogers Street bridge. That's just south of downtown where Rogers St. & College St. meet. Just southeast of that on this trail is the Wags-a-Hachie dog park. Restrooms and a butterfly garden can be found just a bit further down the trail.

This a good concrete trail. Lots of shade and the occasional place to stop and rest. Good trail for history buffs, the trail goes past a historic cemetary and bridge. It starts at a nice family park with lots of big beautiful trees.

Great bike trail, all concrete, mostly shade. This location is also great for walking/running. I am not sure that I would consider it a hiking trail since there is little to no elevation but it is a great place to go to get some exercise. We parked at Lion's Park and went out 3.5 miles and back 3.5 miles for a total of 7 on bikes. It was overall a great time and we passed quite a few people on Sunday enjoying the trail as well!
