The Lanana Creek Trail is approximately 3.5 miles long from E. Austin Street into the youth soccer complex just south of Main Street. The trail is an ongoing project of the Sesquicentennial Celebration of 1986. The trail and Stephan F. Austin State University Abroretum are the result of a cadre of volunteers and enthusiasts that want to make Nacogdoches a better place to live. Some of the trail at both ends is handicap accessable with the northern end winding through beautiful university gardens. The southern end promotes an exercise loop running through youth soccer and youth softball complexes. The trail funs through the campus of SFA, Pecan Park, a former slave cemetery, and beautiful shady areas next to Lanana Creek. It boarders a Texas Historical Cemetery, Oak Grove and makes a loop through youth athletic fields. The mostly shady trail is open all year.
Parking and Trail Access
