This is an awesome trail when it is not under construction, and is well-deserving of five stars. I wish this app would let you know when a trail is not completely accessible, or in this case, completely unusable.
This trail is a great showcase of what this app is all about. The scenery is beautiful and the path is very easy to follow. There are multiple spots along the way to take a quick jump into the water. Absolutely beautiful path. Lives in Houston, and I would absolutely make the drive once a week to come out here.
There are a few areas where you have to pedal hard to go up a hill, but for the most part the trail is pretty flat. Beautiful ride!
Connects to White Rock Lake as well if you want to continue.
As you get closer to the Deep Ellum end, there are a handful of stops signs you'll have to endure due to main roads, but there are crosswalks and safety precautions.
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!
The litter situation appears to have improved, but the trail is a bit grown up so you can’t see the creek or keep a good lookout for critters. Definitely nicer than some I’ve seen in other cities but personally I probably won’t be back.
We have been riding the concrete path on the Spring Creek Trail across from the Botanical Gardens for the past year. They have put up a new Center and trails. One goes way up the hill and one goes around the woods. Lovely and fun. We saw today 4 Armadillos, Great Blue Heron, hundreds of birds and 2 bunnies. Today we explored an area that we thought were just houses but come to find out, another 4 miles of trails. We ended up just off of Aldine Westfield. It was a wonderful 10 mile ride today and there is plenty of room for bikers and walkers. Very impressed!! Great Job Spring Creek Trail!!
Nice trail, however, more maintenance needs to be done on the trail to clear away the weeds from cyclists. If you’re in Las Cruces consider starting at the top of the trail otherwise you will be driving half an hour to the end of the trail and riding it backwards. As a couple the trail was fine but I would not ride this alone as a woman.
I have been all the way from the western terminus (Keegan's Bayou - Kirkwood at W. Belfort) to MacGregor Park. Most of it is fairly pleasant. However, construction at various points is problematic; as of late June 2020, you're looking at wonky intersections at Hillcroft (soon) and Stella Link, and many of the other ones are at angles relative to the trail so that you really have to contort to make the turns (recumbents, beware!) Outside the West Loop there is only one paved underpass (Gessner), the rest are your choice of unpaved dirt/mud or surface-level intersection. The West Loop/Braeswood intersection is a KNOWN DEATH TRAP, so utilize extreme caution here. There is construction east of 288 near Ardmore that is also problematic.
The biggest hazard, though, is west of Gessner. This area is populated by our transient neighbors, particular west of the Keegan's bridge. There is a fair amount of litter near the trail, and here and there are camp sites with tents and ...other things. The I-69 underpass is a No-Go zone if you are not in a group or riding pre-dawn/post-twilight. There is a large transient encampment there, it is not well-lit or near cross-streets, and they sometimes block the trail with debris (carts, lawn chairs, etc) This morning I was also chased by one of their dogs going through.
West of Wilcrest/Murphy the trail is unpaved for about a quarter-mile. There is no parking at the western end, unless you want to go park in the shopping center just south.
Wide paved paths great for walking. Decent amount of foot traffic. If you enjoy looking at houses and power lines this trail is for you. Great for beginning EUC and one wheel riders due to the wide paved path and grass on each side.
Through neighborhoods and along creek side greenbelts and parks, it’s a pleasant meander on a cool evening. The 6-lane road crossings are a little tedious but worth it.
We came at dusk tonight, mid June, beautiful trail in a suburban neighborhood. A pond, a park, a bridge or two, and lots and lots of trees! We even saw fireflies on our way back to the car. Good wide pavement.
I had high hopes when the Hwy was widened as it included some funding to upgrade the old railroad track bed into a bike trail. I was incredibly disappointed. I don't know if the highway construction ran out of money or it was poorly designed but it fell way short of expectations. The surface itself was ok. Perfect for off-road, gravel grinding but the main disappointment was the destruction of the trees that separated the highway from the trail. It lost any real semblance of a trail and I can not recommend it. The good news is It looks like the trail west of Avery heading towards Clarksville is nearing completion and it has the appearance of being much better, although I haven't ridden on it. I have driven by it several times.
