Anytime I’m in nac, I like to go walking/running this trail. You can go all the way from the Hoya soccer fields to almost Kroger on university (one of the sfa buildings you can see Kroger from).
Needs major repair and better intersections
I moved to Nacogdoches a few months back and started walking for exercise more recently. As a result I have been exploring the many trails that Nac offers. Lanana Creek Trail is an excellent trek however there are things to factor in if you are planning to walk/jog/bike it. It actually runs from the north end of town to the south end of town and you can walk the entire length. The entire Trail between Starr Ave. and Austin St. is bike/stroller (and any other wheeled transport) friendly. It is entirely paved with the exception of a short stretch between Tucker Woods and the SFA grounds. That too though is wheel friendly. South of Starr Ave. is a different story. While it is still an excellent hike, there are natural steps formed by tree roots and rocks and such that make it difficult if not nearly impossible for wheeled transports.
We rode this trail from the Marshall Ave. trailhead north for about 2.5 miles. It goes through the woods and every now and again you come across a park or another trailhead. It's a nice trail that is easy to ride and has many things to look at along the way.
One of the best trails we have rode on. Trail is short and has one major road crossing.
This trail is to rough for any bikes other than Mt bikes
Have been on this trail twice in the last month. There are areas on the South end that have been damaged due to flooding and we were not able to get through. I have a Trek cruiser and my husband is disabled and has a hand bike so the major ruts and stairs prevented us from riding the entire trail. There are a few areas that have an area you can go around the bridges/stairs so hopefully when the water is down we can try again. Would appreciate any comments when it clears up! The northern part of the trail that goes through the campus and gardens is beautiful! Can't wait to try it again!
This trail has sun, shade, mud, grass, birds, squirrels, a beautiful creek, and so much more. I enjoy walking and running on it.
The loop my only be 1.2 miles, but there is a nice extension that goes on for another mile or more. I use this trail often for jogging and always love it. No true hills, and all intersections have underpasses for joggers and bikers. There are also several places to picnic and a playground for kids.
Jogged on this trail during recent visit.Trail is uneven,has many exposed tree roots and is ok for walking but it is not a good trail for cycling or jogging.Much work is needed to make it conducive for jogging/biking.
Combined this trail with the one through Southside park and down along Grande. Kudos to the city and others for this great park and trails. Friendly folk,ease of access, well maintained. Nice little hill in the middle.route runs under several street intersections for a smooth ride.
I discovered this beautiful nearby trail thanks to TrailLink.com. I agree with the previous review. It is a fairly wide asphalt trail that allows runners, walkers, and bikers to go in both directions and pass by slower travelers with plenty of room to avoid accidents. The trail has plenty of shade trees on both sides which cools the summer Texas heat a bit, although during the summer months I would recommend walking in the mornings or evenings. The signage is very good indicating quarter miles traveled. I started at the Hollybrooke parking area (I have never had a problem finding a parking space) and when I reached the end of the trail at Marshall Ave., the final sign indicated that the trail was a total of 3 miles (not 2.5 as indicated on the TrailLink site). I haven't walked the entire 3 miles yet. I believe the first mileage post leaving from the Hollybrooke parking lot towards Marshal Ave. indicates mile marker 1. I have walked the other direction to the 3/4 mile post. I know that there is another parking area that likely starts at mile 0 and I look forward to starting at that point and discovering the whole 3 mile trail. The City of Longview has plans to connect this trail to others in the city (see the 2007 development plan at http://www.ci.longview.tx.us/files/park_trail_map_and_information_5350.pdf). I know that the city has been working on adding trails but I don't know what trails have been completed since the 2007 map was issued. I guess I'll just have to explore.
