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.

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.
