Wichita River and Holliday Creek Trails Description

The Wichita River Trail follows the Big Wichita River, a tributary of the Red River. The trail begins in beautifully wooded Lucy Park, making a loop. The park has shelters, playgrounds, a log cabin and a landscaped duck pond.

The trail also passes River Bend Nature Works, a 54-foot-high ornamental waterfall, the Multi Purpose Events Center, Berends Landing facility (with a 100-foot-high interior climbing wall), O'Reilly Park and a fishing pond in Williams Park. From Scott Avenue/US 287 to Lake Wichita Park (another 8+ miles) the trail is called Holliday Creek.

Parking and Trail Access

The trail is accessible from I44, US287, US281 and TX240.

Wichita River and Holliday Creek Trails Reviews

Great ride

March 2020

I grew up in Wichita Co. Moved away some 40+ years ago. I was amazed that this jewel of a trail was in Wichita Falls. My wife and I rode this trail last October, beautiful weather and the Thunder Birds were flying overhead. It was a great day, 33.5 miles in under 165 minutes. We look forward to another ride next time we are in town.

5 Stars for an excellent trail. Well marked, wide smooth concrete, water on trail, safe and plenty of safety features, easy contours, scenic, clean, maintained and a joy to ride. Wichita Falls is a bicycling destination city.

Ran from Lucy Park towards downtown.This part of trail had beautiful views,some up/down elevations,and was uncrowded.Highly recommend if you're in Wichita Falls.

Circle trail

May 2014

I have been enjoying this trail for the last 12 years. It has grown from a few miles to almost 18 total. The City has done an amazing job developing this into one of the premier trails in the Southwest. The variety of scenery is amazing, and wildlife populates several areas on the trail. I alternate running and biking throughout the year and enjoy the changing views. Very level and quite easy with only a few rolling hills.

2-3 Boots trail

I loved trekking this trail, the wildlife and the friendly natives made it very interesting. Lake Wichita is also a part of the natural migration of wild birds and has a bird rescue and sanctuary called the "Wild Bird Rescue." The paved trail and hill make this hike a nice challenge.

Nice trail

November 2004

This trail is the one that my wife and I started on when we decided to get back in shape. It's a very easy ride with lots of shaded areas and picnic areas along the entire length. When it is connected to the upper part of the trail it will end at one of the prettiest little lakes in the area. This trail makes for a very enjoyable ride.
