Boyson Trail Description

The tranquil, tree-lined Boyson Trail runs along Indian Creek and Dry Creek in western Marion. The crushed limestone trail connects neighborhoods, shopping areas, and several parks (north to south): Boyson, Donnelly, Thomas, and Hanna. Restrooms and extensive recreational amenities (picnic pavilions, playgrounds, athletic facilities, etc.) can be found at the latter two parks.

South of Donnelly Park (W. 8th Avenue), the trail also meets the mile-long Lindale Trail, which heads west.

- Boyson Park (975 Boyson Road)

- Donnelly Park (290 W. 8th Avenue)
