Waco Riverwalk

If you continue north on the Riverwalk trail and do not cross the pedestrian bridge you will reach some amazing mountain bike trails!

Cotton Belt Trail (Waco)

Under Construction!

April, 2024 by hwilson3

As mentioned by a March 2024 reviewer, access to the trail from Trail Blazer Park is not possible. After driving to the other end of the trail (parking near the landfill at 31.480351887289, -97.25833084813019 ) we discovered the trail itself is torn up from Church St all the way to Trail Blazer Park. It appears there's a flood control project in work?

Also slightly disappointing the base of the trail under the concrete apparently wasn't compacted well as the surface is cracking badly in many places. This damage will need repair at some point.

It's a short ride (due to the construction) but still worth it.

Bridges through the trees

March, 2024 by brian_thomas

The entry from Trail Blazer Park was closed for construction (March 2024) so we started at the end near the landfill. It has easy parking, was clean and well-maintained. The elevated bridges wind through the trees - very nice. I’ll be back!

Easy access at the sports complex. Surface was smooth, easy riding. Even on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon, it wasn't overly crowded.

Waco Riverwalk

north side stadium paths

December, 2023 by brian_thomas

This is a gem for Waco. The trail now includes much of the north side as well as the south side of the Brazos river. Baylor University built MacLane stadium (2014) on the north side and that opened up a lot more paths. I crossed over the Brazos on the pedestrian bridge and was able to access the trail all the way to the Washington St. Bridge, passing underneath I 35.

Lake Pflugerville Trail

pretty good

August, 2023 by 76q4mfqscc

This trail is a pretty easy but not flat 3 mile loop around the lake. It’s easy to get to and parking wasn’t an issue. The only drawbacks are that it’s kind of boring and there’s not much in the way of shade as you’re walking but if you don’t mind that then it’s a great loop!

Nolan Creek Hike and Bike Trail

relaxing stroll

August, 2022 by rcjoyce123

This concrete path is accessible to everyone. The creek along with its shade trees provide a path that’s both relaxing and rejuvenating.

Very nice scenery, water views! Just found at least half of the trail is gravel most packed some loose, just be prepared.

Wells Branch Hike and Bike Trail

A beautiful, hidden gem

November, 2021 by jeremyandvonnie

I am surprised how many people still don’t know about this trail, but then again maybe that’s a good thing. It is clean, well-maintained, and quite peaceful. The trail wanders through the neighborhood, around Mills Pond, through the main parks areas, along a disc golf course, and it follows a creek most of the way with multiple bridges. I recommend this trail to everyone and they are always pleasantly surprised by how great it is.

FM 2305 Hike & Bike Trail

Bike Trail?

November, 2021 by jordanjh2003

Is this really a bike trail? Seems like it just follows the road on the north side of Adams. If you ride the south side of Adams you’ll get hit for sure. Lots of traffic and vehicles coming and going down all those 30+ driveways that you’ll come across. I wouldn’t call it a “trail” but more of a “route”.

Waco Riverwalk

PICTURESQUE

October, 2021 by thejake91739

On our quest to ride our bikes in all fifty states, the Waco Riverwalk became the first trail for us in the Lone Star State and allowed us to check off state number twenty-one!

On a sunny October afternoon, the parts Waco allowed us to see and ride were sensational! Fantastic views of the mighty Brazos River, historic bridges, magnificent sculptures, and waterfowl were thoroughly enjoyed as we rode the loop. The trail is perfectly maintained, flat for the most part, attractive, and not especially busy on a hot, weekday afternoon.

Unfortunately, several portions and views were off limits and/or obstructed due to renovations, construction, and some urban renewal at and around the historic Waco Suspension Bridge. The suspension bridge was off limits, the trail that goes south under the suspension bridge barricaded, and even parts of the towering Chisolm Trail sculpture, Branding the Brazos, was hidden behind construction tarps. To continue our ride south on the Riverwalk Trail toward Lake Brazos Park and Baylor University, we went up and around the suspension bridge and down some stairs at Indian Spring Park. That put us back on the Riverwalk and headed south UNTIL another barricade a couple hundred yards or so down the trail thwarted our plans and sightseeing! Dang!

Regrettably, the gods of Waco bike riding really let us down. We traveled thousands of miles from Southern California to experience this awesome trail (and so the wife could visit Magnolia and her sister too), but I guess it just wasn't meant to be.

On the bright side, we absolutely loved what we were able to experience! Once Waco gets its riverfront renovations wrapped up, it will truly be a five star trail and even more so worth your time. Don't forget your camera!
