Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

For much of its route, the Rock Island Rail Trail in Amarillo parallels Plains Boulevard, stretching 4 miles between Coulter Street and 7th Avenue at Crockett Street. The trail follows an old rail corridor through an older mixed residential and commercial part of the city.

There's not much shade along this wide paved trail—though there are trees here and there—and you'll find a lot of street crossings, but there are rest areas with picnic tables.

Parking and Trail Access

There is no official parking but you may be able to park along the trail behind the businesses off 10th Avenue at the eastern end.
