Randy Morrow Trail Description

The Randy Morrow Trail was formerly known as the North San Gabriel River Trail as it parallels the north bank of the waterway for much of its route. In 2013, it was renamed after city’s first Parks and Recreation director.

The paved pathway is part of a system of trails throughout Georgetown and, on its eastern end, connects to the San Gabriel Park Trail, a crushed stone loop through the 180-acre park. From San Gabriel Park, the Randy Morrow Trail heads west and then northwest on a route largely shaded by trees.

After passing under I-35, the trail winds through Rivery Park, where you'll find a large playground for the kids, fishing in the pond, and grills and tables for picnicking.

As the trail continues its northwest course, you'll pass a star gazing plaza and a bird watching station. At its north end, the pathway travels through Booty’s Road Park and ends at the Overlook Trailhead near the shoreline of Lake Georgetown. The reservoir's clear, deep waters are popular for boating and fishing.

Adventure seekers can continue their explorations by connecting to the Goodwater Loop, an unpaved hiking and mountain biking trail that circles the lake. The trail winds through Cedar Breaks Park and Jim Hogg Park, where many outdoor amenities are available, including camping.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking, restrooms, and drinking water are available on the east end of the trail in San Gabriel Park (445 E. Morrow Street) and at Rivery Park (1448 Rivery Boulevard).

On its west end, parking, restrooms, and drinking water are available in Booty’s Road Park (1631 Booty’s Park Road) and at the Overlook Trailhead (500 Lake Overlook Drive). If you continue on the Goodwater Loop, parking is also available in Cedar Breaks Park (2100 Cedar Breaks Road) and Jim Hogg Park (500 Jim Hogg Road).

Randy Morrow Trail Reviews

Not for novice bike riders

More for experienced mountain bike riders. Although some areas are paved , there are extremely steep areas which most will have to walk and areas of narrow dirt trail with steep drop offs. This is not a trail for a family ride. There many blind curves as well, putting hikers at risk when a mountain bike comes flying down the trail. I rate this a 3 at best.

Great family friendly walk

Great paved trail, mostly flat, very clean with lots of trashes. The main trail is great for strollers, the only thing I didn’t love was the road noise though the trail is set far from the road.

Unbelievably fun. Mostly shaded year round.

Wonderful ride. Don't take it too seriously when biking. Pedestrians are all over. Most are aware of you and will move when you announce, but be prepared for those who do not understand what SHARE THE TRAIL means.

Nice bike ride into town

We usually ride this trail from the campground/dam into town. It's a nice trail that crosses the San Gabriel River several times. The trail is shaded where you ride along the river. You have to ride through a neighborhood for a small part, but it's not hard to figure out where to go. Coming back, the ride up the dam is the hardest part of the trail, but it's doable.
In October of 2018 the bridge crossing the river into town was damaged due to flooding. Not sure if and when it has been repaired.

Last mile of trail towards dam

We traveled the trail all the way up to the dam on bikes. It looked like the last mile of the trail going up along the dam was just for hiking. We did not try on bikes. Does anyone know if the last mile is "bikable?"

Randy Morrow - Biking

I will first say this: If you are a beginner, this trail is not for you! (at-least the full length isn't) -- I consider myself an avid rider, and I must admit, this trail was a tough one!

There is many steep levels, both asphalt, and crushed granite. You have to be prepared to go uphills, and often!

The views are what made it though! You start off at a park scene, and end up at the beautiful Lake Georgetown. (depending on where you start).

This trail is a must ride for avid trail riders.

Nice, mixed pave and dirt starter not to long

Did the trail with my kids and was easy enough for them and challenging.

mixed open and wooded. narrow in spots

nice if not crowded
