Description

This is a natural-surface path that provides an east-west crossing of Turkey Creek using the Banzai Pipeline. The east end is at the Addicks Dam and the west end is a legacy road in Addicks Reservoir. The path remains muddy for a time after rains. The lowest and wettest section is just west of the dam. Users should always be prepared for mosquitoes.

The western end of the path is accessed by the Bauer Trail. Beginning at the eastern bend of the Bauer Trail, the trace generally follows an elevated bank until meeting the Malsbury Trace where it turns sharply south along the irrigation ditch to the Banzai Pipeline. It is possible to cross Turkey Creek using the pipeline with caution. Proceeding east, the trace passes through yaupon stands then crosses the low-lying ground where the earth for the dam was sourced. The east end of the trace is at the Addicks Dam Road Southeast.
