Great park with nice scenery, close to downtown. The trails are great for all levels of mountain biking and trail running. Make sure you look at a map of the trails, it’s easy to get turned around.

Another good dog hiking trail

Very pretty Hike on the trail along the river. Awesome views from Lovers Leap. Other trails a little confusing to follow and we spent some time going in circles but still a very nice hike.

Great place to go spend an hour or two.

Great park in city limits. You feel like you’re in the mountains in the heart of Texas.

I run this trail regularly. The dirt trails with some limestone help to keep the abs engaged. The constant ups and downs provide an excellent workout for the legs. It's great for hiking/walking too.

Such an unexpected part of central Texas. On the trails, you almost forget you’re in Texas altogether. The forest is beautiful, especially in the fall and during spring when the flowers are in bloom. The cliff overlooks on the Brazos River are neat, especially if you hike around the fencing. There are trails of all difficulty levels which are marked similarly to ski slopes, but make sure you have a trail map/picture of the trail map handy as it is easy to get lost! I highly recommend checking out the trails if you are in the Waco area, it is definitely worth it!

Absolutely love hiking Cameron Park! I always find different paths that I haven't taken before and the beautiful scenery is never disappointing!

Love walking at this park from Indian Springs park. Never a dull moment.

Cameron Park in Waco is just beautiful. Lots of picnic areas with clean restrooms. Too many awesome trails to list. We enjoyed Jacobs Ladder, Lovers Leap and the many trails following the river. A lovely place and super sweet people!

Very well kempt, many trails, well marked, hills, river walk, trees, bamboo groves, an urban oasis.

Great trails, easy to get lost but getting lost means you can drop into a neighborhood. most trails are well marked, others are a little less visible.

Great terrain, some areas get a little challenging but worth it.

Great place to ride for beginners and for the extreme.

Trails are well maintained. Wide variety of terrains.

I ran the river trail from east to west and back. I estimate 5.5 miles. Pretty cliffs. Flat not too flat. Can't get lost. River was pretty. Saw a few boats. Mostly shady.

I used to think this was a 5 star hike before I actually started hiking elsewhere in America. Never the less, it takes nothing away from the trail. I really like it! there are a ton of different variations you can mix and match.

Good enough to drive 70 miles, we love it, well maintained, well marked, even plotted on Google Maps if you loose your bearings. Many levels, from easy riverside strolling to heart pounding hills. Big enough to enjoy nature, traveled enough to feel safe. Multiple visits and we are still discovering.

We had an enjoyable Sunday afternoon hike. It was well worth the drive up from G-Town. We'll be doing these trails again.

This is a fantastic park. Don't let the easy rating fool you. Too many trails out there to enjoy in one day. Shred it

Tough cardio! Love it though.

Great place to run, hike, and ride bikes! Watch out for mud!

Beautiful. Weather was perfect (late October)

This place right here is absolutely AWESOME!!! Various skill levels could spend hours out here.. Very well maintained.. super XC MTB experience.. and everyone has huge kudos for trail etiquette in this area.. totally opposite of trails in Austin.

My wife and I went here for the first time this weekend. We parked and started at the Redwood Shelter on the east side of the park. For a detailed map of all the trails: http://www.mountainbiketx.com/downloads/texas/maps/Cameron_Park.pdf Our first leg was River Trail, nice and easy trail with beautiful views of the Brazos River. The trail is nice and wide. Very beginner friendly. On the way back we took the Twin Bridges intermediate trail back the River Trail. This one has a lot more elevation changes and I was able to get a little burn in the thighs. The third leg of the trip we took Act Of Faith, another nice trail but with more elevation changes than what we were expecting. Crossed over to Shyst/Pipeline, which in my opinion should be marked as an intermediate trail. In my opinion anyway. We ended back on River Trail and rode it all the way to the park entrance and then rode the River Walk all the way to the I-35 overpass and back.

It is an amazing place to go with plenty of nice trails to ride. Definitely my favorite place I've ridden so far.

Definitely my favorite park in Texas so far. Great tree cover. Reminds me of some good Northern Ohio and Michigan parks I have been too.
