Jimmy and company have been very busy installing directional signs on the trail, we are working away from ribbons in the trees.

If you are running and it’s not an event – face the bike traffic  – if it’s an event, runners go the same direction as the bikers.

We have even marked all the road crossings with old fire hose!

Good places to park –

On the far right of the trail at 105 Wichita Street at the Wee-Chi-Tah Statue

In the middle of the trail at the Texas Info Center just off I-44

The trail is a loop – one way – except on Wednesday then it’s WRONG WAY WEDNESDAY!  (On Wednesday, keep the ribbons on your left but be aware of folks riding the other way!)  Wrong Way Wednesday is suspended for all of August. 

When you get to the RV Park, keep going north across the park and you will see the trail entrance.
