Brushy Creek Regional Trail

Beautiful Trail, Rude Bikers

January, 2021 by sherry.beeson

Trails are in great condition. Families though have to compete with bikers. I am a cross country biker and I was appalled by the general biking etiquette and the adrenaline rush nature and just run you off the road attitude of the on the sidewalk and off road bikers. They are dangerous and encourage that the trail needs some type of restrictions and policing. There are too many walkers and children for them to act this way at a very nice public park.

Brushy Creek Regional Trail

On your left!

January, 2021 by marcusoverton

Beautiful trail. Can't wait for more segments to get built. Some people in these reviews have complained of entitled riders, but my experience has been exactly the opposite. Entitled pedestrians very frequently walk side by side covering most of the path and sometimes the entire path, and this doesn't just annoy cyclists such as me but joggers as well. Treat the trails as shared use, walk only on the right side, keep your children and dogs with you at your side (not 50 feet in front of you, swerving left and right in the middle of the trail), and there will be very few problems.

183A Shared Use Path

Great resource for safe riding, tho not very scenic

November, 2020 by blair151

This path is a great way to safely do 7 miles, either on its own or tacked on to the beautiful Brushy Creek Trail. This 183A path is in excellent shape, with a very wide concrete surface. It does require crossing the very busy Whitestone Boulevard in Cedar Park, as well as a few other less busy roads, all of which have crosswalks with signals. The majority of the time, you're paralleling the noisy turnpike, but it's far enough removed at most points that I can tune out the traffic. The path is nicely landscaped, but overall isn't very scenic -- it's still just a big sidewalk going along between the turnpike and business or residential areas, with very few adjacent trees. There are a couple nice long wood bridges that improve the vibe.

I like taking a detour from the path in Cedar Park just after crossing Whitestone, to enjoy a winding path around a couple of nice urban lakes, leading to the fun Cedar Park Sculpture Garden. Then I cut up Discovery Boulevard and go behind the HEB Center -- this route is much quieter and allows me to bypass the front of the big "Parke" shopping center along 183A, with its many busy entrances that seem a bit unsafe for a cyclist zipping by on the sidewalk.

I'll usually start towards the East end of the Brushy Creek trail (sometimes starting in Bridgewater Park), and enjoy that wonderfully scenic trail up to the turnpike, then hop on the 183A path for 7 more miles. (Or vice versa, depending on the wind direction.) Overall, I really like the 183A path and recommend it for a nice, safe ride of 7 miles or so.

Randy Morrow Trail

Not for novice bike riders

November, 2020 by battchief227

More for experienced mountain bike riders. Although some areas are paved , there are extremely steep areas which most will have to walk and areas of narrow dirt trail with steep drop offs. This is not a trail for a family ride. There many blind curves as well, putting hikers at risk when a mountain bike comes flying down the trail. I rate this a 3 at best.

Cotton Belt Trail (Waco)

Family friendly trail

October, 2020 by karla.texas

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.

Randy Morrow Trail

Great family friendly walk

October, 2020 by caitlin_baumg

Great paved trail, mostly flat, very clean with lots of trashes. The main trail is great for strollers, the only thing I didn’t love was the road noise though the trail is set far from the road.

Brushy Creek Regional Trail

Nice well maintained trail

September, 2020 by brooke.udy

Went for a bike ride with my husband this morning. From Stone Creek Pool parking lot to the Twin Lakes YMCA parking lot and back it was 15 miles. There were a lot of hikers, bikers, runners, dog walkers on the trail however it was a Saturday morning with cool weather so congestion was expected. There are lots of things to see along the trail (creeks, waterfall, lakes, rock formations, trestle bridge) and it is well maintained. Plan to return to the trail soon!

Waco Riverwalk

A Must if You Are Visiting Waco (and you should!)

September, 2020 by david592

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.

Randy Morrow Trail

Unbelievably fun. Mostly shaded year round.

September, 2020 by megakhan

Wonderful ride. Don't take it too seriously when biking. Pedestrians are all over. Most are aware of you and will move when you announce, but be prepared for those who do not understand what SHARE THE TRAIL means.

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!
