“An easy run that follows the banks of the Paluxy River and provides great access to swimming and dinosaur tracking.”— John Shuttlesworth
The first half of the run is heavily wooded with plenty of shade while the last half follows the edge of a large field with lots of sun exposure. Be sure to bring your hat and sunscreen for this run. As you near the end of the trail, you can see the heads of dinosaurs over the treeline to the southwest from the small amusement park at the doorstep to the state park. The trail concludes at the main park road allowing you to backtrack or just wander down the road back to your site or car.
