Brushy Creek Regional Trail

Entitled bike riders

August, 2020 by scott358

I like to hike this trail but find that too many bike riders think they’re entitled to ride fast and own the trail two abreast. I’ve seen really disappointing behavior, especially now that more of us are at home and looking for ways to exercise outdoors. There are dedicated bike lanes and shoulders on Parmer. Let them use those if they have to ride fast.

Nolan Creek Hike and Bike Trail

beautiful!

July, 2020 by jade33040

Our dog loved it. There are plenty of ducks and wildlife to watch and nice wide paved trails. My favorite Bell County find so far!

Friars Creek Hike & Bike Trail

just not the best

July, 2020 by jade33040

The litter situation appears to have improved, but the trail is a bit grown up so you can’t see the creek or keep a good lookout for critters. Definitely nicer than some I’ve seen in other cities but personally I probably won’t be back.

Gilleland Creek Trail

Skating was so-so

June, 2020 by christinanisse

There were portions of this trail that were really enjoyable on to skate. Some areas had large smooth concrete slabs allowing for some decent striding. However, there were a few portions that had smaller slabs with larger gaps that threatened to dislodge my fillings. The scenery was nice, especially near the trail head where the creek was visible. We went on a Sunday evening and it took about an hour and a half to skate. We saw a park where neighboring chickens were hanging out on the playground. The traffic was mainly pedestrian with some bicycle and a couple other skaters.

Nolan Creek Hike and Bike Trail

...Great walking trail

June, 2020 by mtstmichel52

After relocation to Belton TX from OR, I am thrilled to have an outdoor area such as this to walk our fur-babies and enjoy the sound of the running creek waters...nothing can take the beauty away from OR, but this rural area and Belton in itself was a great place to relocate....the one thing I would like to see is less canine waste...I always carry 3-4 empty bags with me..but I will not pick-up other animals waste....it is not that big of a deal to respect others walking or biking areas...just saying...not sure if horses are allowed on trail, but this past weekend there was a significant amount of horse waste along the paths...maybe a reminder to the public would be helpful.

Nolan Creek Hike and Bike Trail

great trail

May, 2020 by juanloscastro

It’s a great trail to walk run or bike, but people should pick up after there dogs the trail has lots of dog droppings along the way.

Pepper Creek Hike & Bike Trail

Nice location

October, 2019 by psu4pc

Multiple access points with several doggie bag stations.

Adding disc golf and shelters for picnics.

Easy 1.5 mile trail about 10 feeet wide and paved.

Will frequent it for sure.

Randy Morrow Trail

Nice bike ride into town

October, 2019 by trukas2013

We usually ride this trail from the campground/dam into town. It's a nice trail that crosses the San Gabriel River several times. The trail is shaded where you ride along the river. You have to ride through a neighborhood for a small part, but it's not hard to figure out where to go. Coming back, the ride up the dam is the hardest part of the trail, but it's doable.
In October of 2018 the bridge crossing the river into town was damaged due to flooding. Not sure if and when it has been repaired.

Brushy Creek Regional Trail

Courtesy

September, 2019 by mark.wilson_tl

I walk 5 miles on Brushy Creek Trail almost every Sunday. Although most bike riders ride safely, I see too many who do not. Today I witnessed an almost-tragic collision between an adult rider and a one year old child. Adding insult to potentially fatal injury, the rider yelled "Courtesy!" as he sped by. The child tottered at the very edge of the trail and the biker missed him by no more than a foot. The child's parents were also at the edge of the trail. The biker behaved as if the child and his parents should have thrown themselves out of the way, which I assure you could not have happened because the rider appeared suddenly and was riding too fast for them to react. I was walking in the opposite direction with my wife and a friend and the biker rode between us and the family as we passed one another.

The rider, an adult man who should know better, was gone in seconds and there is probably no hope of changing his attitude so he remains dangerous. The trail is posted with a few signs informing bikers to defer to pedestrians, but some riders act as though the Trail is primarily for bikers and everyone else is in their way.

What can be done? Larger and more explicit signs? Speed bumps? I wish I knew. Have there been serious collisions on the Trail?

I love walking Brushy Creek Trail, the creek, the trees, the meadows, the deer. It can be very relaxing, but incidents like this today make me furious.

Brushy Creek Regional Trail

Awesome scenic trail for road cycling!

July, 2019 by matthewmiller951

This trail system is one of the FEW trails available in the area that's mostly paved for road bike riders! So, anyone walking on this trail should get used to bikers as well. Also, anyone riding a road bike on this trail without a doubt is mindful of pedestrians at all times, cyclists just want a safe place to ride without a 5,000 lb SUV next to them, this is one of the few trails that offer this security. Once they link the EAST and West sections its going to be the finest bicycle trail around.

Hike and Bike Trail (Taylor)

A very nice trail for hiking and biking, running through several beautiful parks connected by a creek. The disc golf course in mid section is gorgeous.
