Trailhead for the Brushy Creek Regional Trail

Walk the Brushy Creek Regional Trail and see an example of outstanding regional cooperation that was integral to creating an eight-mile trail system. The trail occupies land owned by three cities, a county, two municipal utility districts, and a private residential development. During a barbecue lunch in the park, learn how all parties came together to plan the trail system and then win Texas' first regional park grant from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

The tour will visit the first three miles of the granite gravel trail as it follows scenic Brushy Creek, linking communities and parks. The greenway promotes conservation and stewardship of open space, greenbelts, and wetlands. The respective park staff will serve as tour guides as we hike the various portions of the trail. The guides will describe and show examples of the trail building process and techniques. We will discuss the interagency cooperation that has contributed to the success of the trail system.

This trail system is mostly accessible.
