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...
We came all the way from Pennsylvania to ride on a nice trail in the Amarillo Area and were very disappointed. We found the trail (or at least saw it) from a road that runs parallel to it. Unfortunately we rode almost its entire length in our car but found no parking. None at all. Very disappointing. Would recommend riding at other trails in Texas.
On September 20, 2023 we drove to the Wildcat Bluff Nature Center on N. Soncy Road in search of the trail head and parking. There was major construction going on related to the new highway loop. It was difficult to even get to the nature center. When we arrived we talked with the woman who worked there. She told us that the trail no longer existed and that it had been engulfed by the new roadway. We were quite disappointed and would recommend that this trail be taken from the Rails to Trails Conservancy web site. Perhaps there will be a replacement or enhancement in the future. My advice........look for another trail in Texas.
It’s a shame Amarillo has allowed the Rock Island Rail Trail to be overtaken by the city’s homeless. The rail trail used to be a convenient and safe location for bicyclists, walkers, and runners. That is no longer true. There are too many homeless people sleeping on the benches or in tents alongside the trail, blocking the trail with their carts, and leaving behind their garbage. I no longer find it enjoyable to use the trail, and I don’t feel safe anymore.
Nice enough trail for a stroll on our way through town. Not a lot to see but well paved. A bit of an arboretum with trees and signs indicating what they are.
We tried to enter at south end. Only 1/4 mile and then completely unavailable due to construction. Not able to get around so gave up.
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.
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?
Rode the trail out today. West end to east. Its great. Some traffic to deal with at street intersections. Be careful.
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.
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.
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.
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.
