“This trace runs south from Clay Road along the west bank of the creek to the Banzai Pipeline.”— Bryan Dotson
Note that the Corps of Engineers may close areas to access for wildlife control operations. Look for signs at the entrances to Noack Trail and Miles Trail as the entrance to Malsbury Trace may not be marked.
The total length of the trace is about 1.2 miles. Beginning at Clay Road and going south along the west bank of the creek, the trace is on a wide and generally dry bank for about 0.7 miles. At this point, the wide bank stops and the trace cuts sharply right and runs through the brush, parallel to the creek. It stays just east of the creek until reaching the Banzai Pipeline, which crosses Turkey Creek.
According to US Army Corps of Engineers’ records, most of this trail is on land that was owned by W. A. Malsbury et al before appropriation for the reservoir.
