Nolan Creek Hike and Bike Trail Description

Nolan Creek Hike and Bike Trail is a beautiful amenity right in the heart of Belton, connecting several parks and the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. Beginning at Confederate Park, the paved trail closely follows the river and travels through Yettie Polk Park and Harris Community Park before ending at the university’s campus.

Although all the parks along the way offer a plethora of recreational opportunities, the Harris Community Park in particular is a standout with a butterfly garden, fishing deck, softball field, and splash pad. Another highlight of the route is a nearly 400-foot pedestrian bridge over the creek; part of the structure includes a Warren pony truss bridge dating back to 1900.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking and restrooms are available at the three parks that the trail connects: Confederate Park (700 Confederate Park Drive), Yettie Polk Park (101 S. Davis Street), and Harris Community Park (312 N. Alexander Street).

Nolan Creek Hike and Bike Trail Reviews

relaxing stroll

This concrete path is accessible to everyone. The creek along with its shade trees provide a path that’s both relaxing and rejuvenating.

Enjoyable walk

We really enjoyed walking along this trail next to Nolan Creek. It goes through 3 parks and was not crowded at all. All concrete pathway made it very easy. If you have kids they will enjoy both the creek and the playgrounds along the way. One even had a splash pad. There are a few spots with easy access to the creek. While we were sitting with our feet in the water a family came by and the grandmother introduced us to her son, who designed this trail walk!


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!

...Great walking trail

After relocation to Belton TX from OR, I am thrilled to have an outdoor area such as this to walk our fur-babies and enjoy the sound of the running creek waters...nothing can take the beauty away from OR, but this rural area and Belton in itself was a great place to relocate....the one thing I would like to see is less canine waste...I always carry 3-4 empty bags with me..but I will not pick-up other animals is not that big of a deal to respect others walking or biking areas...just saying...not sure if horses are allowed on trail, but this past weekend there was a significant amount of horse waste along the paths...maybe a reminder to the public would be helpful.

It’s a great trail to walk run or bike, but people should pick up after there dogs the trail has lots of dog droppings along the way.
