Rock Island Rail Trail (TX)

In-line skating the Rock Island trail

September, 2020 by rmaron

I found this trail on traillink. Stopped here and skated it early on a Saturday while doing a X-C road trip. It is a great skating trail with a very smooth concrete surface. There are seams every 10' in the concrete, but my wheels rolled over them easily. The cross streets had crosswalks on them. I took it slow there, but did not have any trouble crossing them. Early on a Saturday morning, there was very little traffic on the trail. Very well maintained.

good size hole on trail near avondale and plains

August, 2020 by healthyrelations101

The gaping hole near the corner of avondale and plains needs to be fixed so a biker does not get hurt. Who do we contact to get it fixed?

Rock Island Rail Trail (TX)

Super smooth and flat, but the rest of the story

April, 2019 by communicating

Wife and I had the opportunity to do the whole trail today and found the trail to be very smooth, easy, flat and straight. The trail is well designed with not many road crossings and those that are there are well marked. The trail had plenty of water, bike repair stations and benches/picnic areas.

Now for the rest of the story. The area and folks along the trail leave you with a very uneasy feeling. We passed numerous homeless folks and found that the trash has not been picked up along the trail.

Come on Amarillo, clean up one of your great assets.

Old Soncy Trail

There was an open area along the trail at 9th Ave and Soncy, so we parked there. My husband and I took our bikes out on this... mine was a road bike and his was a mountain bike. It has some steep inclines/declines, which can be a little scary for someone to go down if they are not used to those. You can run, walk or ride your bike, and you can go alone, take a friend, go with family and/or bring your dog. It is a straightforward trail, so you don't have to worry about getting lost at all. No shade covering. Very pretty if you go at dusk/sunset. Bring bug spray.

Arbor Trail, tigers, and bears, oh my!

October, 2015 by adam327

Trail runs from east point on SW 7th Ave (center city/downtown) and Crockett to west point on Coulter Street and Interstate 40 (northwest/Medical District).
Parking is available at east trailhead or you can park somewhere along the path wherever you can find a spot.
Created in 2004 with a donation from British Petroleum. There is a gazebo and a horse painted with a rainforest mural (ironic because this was before the BP Oil Spill). beautiful Arbor Trail spans the west 1/2 mile with dozens of trees from around the world with labels and info markers.
All markings listed from west to east
water fountains (year round) at each 1/5 mile
Public shaded picnic tables @ mile .3 and mile 2.7.
There are 7 road crossings at:
Crossing Plains Boulevard @mile .5
Crossing Bell Street @mile 1
Crossing Avondale Street @mile 1.5
Crossing Western Street @mile 2
Crossing Dixie Street @mile2.5
Crossing Kansas Street @mile 2.6
Crossing Georgia @mile 3 (go to intersection .1mile south to cross)
There is one underpass @mile 3.4.
There are restrooms and a playground on the rail trail in-between Dixie Crossing and Kansas Crossing @Margaret Wills Municipal Elementary School Park.
Have fun!!!!!

A good riding trail and a great walking trail. However, the review says it is flat. It definitely is not flat e crept the first mile or so. After that there are dips and steep climbs which may be great for training for mountain cycling and racers. But not so great if you just want a nice cruise. (Me) I realize I'm not in shape, but I had to walk most of the way back to our parking close to 1-40. Should have ridden south from Wildcat park and coasted all the way back.

Short but Sweet by Bill Blackmon with Emily and Jadon, July 7th, 2011

July, 2011 by Bill Blackmon

Between family reunions this July (2011), my wife and I took two of our grandkids to Amarillo, TX to visit Palo Duro Canyon and see the "Texas" show. While there I checked online and found the Rock Island Rail Trail. On July 7th, the two grandkids and I loaded the bikes to give the trail at try. The trail is 4 miles long and runs through older residential and commercial areas. The concrete path is wide and smooth with well kept grass and trees on both sides as well as picnic tables and shade arbors along the way. Noticed a couple of hamburger spots but it was mid-morning and we did not stop and check them out. The trail appears well used as a good deal of foot traffic was present with some other bike traffic. Along the west end of the trail is the arbor section with labeled trees planted on both sides of the trail.
The trail was fun to ride and we all had a great time. I had the chance to teach the grandkids about traffic and road crossings as there are several controlled street crossings and a couple of uncontrolled crossings.
I would ride this trail again, although it is not a trail that I would drive to Amarillo to ride as it is short and I am not a fan of street crossings, but when in the area, I will always have my bike and take a ride. The grandkids loved it and the 4 miles was just about the right distance for them. I give the trail a good rating because it is well kept and very pleasent to ride. Good parking at both ends and easy to find. So if in Amirillo, hit the pavement, relax, enjoy the scenry, and the friendly people of Amirillo.
