Paseo de la Resaca Community Trail Description

The Paseo de la Resaca Community Trail is a 7-mile meandering multiuse path in Brownsville, Texas. Surrounded by residential neighborhoods, the scenic concrete trail runs along a network of tranquil waterways. Underpasses whisk you safely under intersecting streets while boardwalk bridges at different points take you over the water. Trail amenities include pergolas, benches, picnic tables, wayfinding signs, playgrounds and lighting.

While residents and visitors have several areas to access this trail, the most popular starting point is at the Brownsville Event Center. The Event Center offers ample parking, a playground, public restrooms, a water fountain, a deck on the water, picnic tables, and it is where the Paseo de la Resaca Community Trail connects to the Historic Battlefield Trail. In addition, this trail connects to Paredes Elementary School, Margret M. Clark Aquatic Center, and Hudson Elementary School, making it a safe route to school for many students. 

Parking and Trail Access

Public parking for the Paseo de la Resaca Community Trail is available at the Brownsville Event Center (1 Event Ctr.), located on Emerald Valley Blvd, off Paredes Line Rd. (If traveling south on Paredes, the Event Center will be on your right).

Safe Paved Wide Long Trail

Our hike at Paseo de la Resaca today was awesome! Here's what you need to know if you plan on taking these trails. . • the trails wind in and out of neighborhoods. There are lots of people, families, dogs, and wide paved paths. I felt really safe even being separated from the group. . .Good for walking, running , biking &, skating. . • Trail length is 7mi. • • today was perfect weather. But I imagine the heat gets a little ridiculous when the sun is out. . .There are water stations but few and far between. . .bathrooms are ONLY at the beginning of the trail and they are GROSS . So, if you drank coffee before your hike... may want to do your biz at home before you go... . . when you're headed back towards the parking area on the opposite side of the resaca, the trail only cuts back over at Paredes Line Rd. We made the mistake of going under the overpass thinking the trail would cross back over to the parking area but it didn't and we had to walk back to paredes and cross over. It was very scenic and relaxing. Lots of ducks & and birds. Pretty quiet even though it's in a busy area.

Very nice
