Cottonwood Creek Trail (TX) Description

The Cottonwood Creek Trail is a 3-mile paved trail that connects several schools and parks. From Fritz Park on its northern end, the first half of the trail follows Cottonwood Creek through Creekside Park. Once you get to Meadowside Drive, the path veers west where you will ride on sidewalk pathways along Carl Stern Boulevard. The trail provides a convenient recreational connection between Hutto Elementary and Nadine Johnson Elementary, as well as Hutto High School. The trail is an effort by the city to connect more neighborhoods to parks and schools.

Cottonwood Creek Trail (TX) Reviews

It was OK, except for when we got a whiff of the treatment plant. My dog liked it;). A nice bridge, a pass under the highway, some parks and bathrooms. Not challenging, just strolling.

This is a nice trail for biking, walking, or running. Frequented by people of all ages, this trail connects Fritz Park to Creekside Park in Hutto.
