Friars Creek Hike & Bike Trail Description

The Friar's Creek Trail begins in South Temple Park, perhaps best known for the adjacent Lions Junction Family Water Park. From there, it travels north about a mile following the creek and S. 5th Street. Although some trees line the path, the trail is mostly open, passing fields, residential areas and Raye-Allen Elementary School. Trail-goers can also reach the playgrounds and picnic areas of Silverstone Park by turning west on Waters Dairy Road and traveling a short distance to the park.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking lots can be found at the trail's southern end at South Temple Park (5000 S. 5th Street) and at Silverstone Park (off Waters Dairy Road near its intersection with S. 5th Street).

Friars Creek Hike & Bike Trail Reviews

just not the best

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.

Great Disk Course

Friars Creek Trail was a great walk. Sadly the water park and the beginning of the trail is covered in litter. The disk course is large and has a great course but maintenance is lacking. The trail has a god length and hopefully might grow in the future still worth checking out.
