Started at Lions Club on a Sunday, no traffic, easy to park! Lots of activity on trail, not for speed biking but still enough room for everyone. I agree with other review about trail markings. I wish all did a better job. The construction was still happening but we had a trail clearly marked to navigate through it. When you get to the cemetery keep going, the trail picks up on the other side. When you're coming from the big city park and you come to the basketball court and parking lot, turn, go over the bridge. New parking lot and pretty sidewalk art trail takes you across the street. Adventurous, a little curvy and lots of beauty!
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!
This is a wonderful trail for walking, scootering, biking, jogging etc. The views are beautiful and it feels safe and friendly.
So far this place has some of the best trails for OneWheels. Always a great time!
I took my grandchildren to ride bicycles on the Cotton Belt Trail. It’s great! No streets to cross. Easy parking. We parked in the middle so we could go either way. Very family friendly.
The Waco Riverwalk Trail is a delightful trip near the beautiful Brazos River and Cameron Park, and into historic Downtown Waco. The Waco Suspension Bridge (of Roebling BEFORE the Brooklyn Bridge) is not to be missed. Many food truck and restaurant options on the East end of the trail. The marvelous Cameron Park Zoo and the Park itself with its spectacular topography is on the West end.
Best to do with a bike and on a cloudy or cool day, not much shade but the concrete helps to stay on the trail. Overall not horrible trail
Great easy trail for running, walking, or biking. Weaves through 4 parks, over water and along the lake, and near the square for easy access to wander downtown to grab lunch, a drink or souvenirs. Our favorite part is the boardwalk behind the hotel and convention center that over looks the lake and also the boardwalk on the beach!
Great early morning adventure! Less traffic and various options available....short or longer stretches, or walking, biking, or running..
Love the trail! Has shade and full sun spots. So use your sunscreen and a hat. Slow incline for your first two miles. Walk back is great! Got my 10,000 steps in! Beautiful day! Great people You meet along the way! ¿¿
I love this trail. I bike, walk my dog and run here. Very clean and safe with beautiful views of the city
Fist time there cycling. I entered at the Getzendaner Park side & the trail was only 1 1/2 mile long. I got to the 77 bridge which is under construction & I didn’t know what to do at that point which was very disappointing because from the reviews I thought it was a 6 mile trail. I will say if I was walking it was a very nice shaded trail. Tons of people out walking.
