Trail Information: A 16 mile hike and bike trail is located off LaVilla Road, Park Road 36 and Burma Road (east side lake area).  This trail offers several trailheads with restrooms and public parking. The trail also provides access to the top of a high peak that has an outstanding view of the lake. The trail winds through wooded areas, limestone canyons and the trails peak more than 350 feet above the lake. The trail system was designed to allow the habitat to remain untouched outside of the marked trail, so visitors will enjoy wilderness as it is native to the PK area. 
 
One-quarter mile nature trail at Westside Park (west side PK lake area). 
 
One-mile hiking trail along the Brazos River (below the dam). 
 
These hike and bike trails are free to the public and are available year-around (weather permitting). 
 
Miscellaneous Information: More information on the Chamber of Commerce Website.

The trails range from novice to expert for biking. Some of the terrain is steep and can be slippery after a rain.
I have been hiking, biking and running these trails for three years with some trails recently opened this year. The views are spectacular!!!!
