Need to Know

Hikers can access trail at the trailhead parking lot at the south end of the trail near Waurika Lake. Trail segments can be accessed on county roads 1860, 1850, and 1840: there is roadside parking along either side of 1860 near the Walker Creek Bridge; either side of Walker Creek Wetland on 1850; and there is a small trail parking lot on 1840 beside Walker Creek near the north end of the trail. The southend trailhead parking lot has pit toilets.

Runner Notes

There are three or four small water crossings, six road crossings, and two bridges to cross (one is ~1/2 mile) - relatively obstacle free.


This trail can be approached as having seven segments: three on the northbound side, a north cap, and three on the southbound side. The trail has brown fiberglass trail markers with arrows, and metal mile posts. The entire trail is open to hiking, equestrian and mountain bike travelers.

The trailhead has a nice parking lot big enough for truck and horse trailers.

The first segment (1.56mi) heads south through a wooded area and quickly loops to travel north following the lakeshore up to County Road 1860. There may be a few small mud pits and tributaries along the way that are easily traversed.

The second segment (1.24mi) starts directly across 1860 and continues north through a mostly wooded area along the lake and creek up to the Waurika Wetlands Area parking lot on County road 1850.

The third segment (2.84mi) heads north and west for a while, crosses a tributary near County Road 2740, oops back to the south and east for a while, and then heads off back north and east until it reaches County Road 1840. Don't stop yet! Head due west on the southside of 1840 for about a quarter of a mile and then cross north to the northbound trail marker.

The fourth segment (1.29mi) is a cap that starts out in grassland at County Road 1840 and in a while there is a nice picnic area with horse tie up rails before the trail heads into a thick wooded area. The trail then heads back south, meets a wide trail that heads into a trail parking area on County Road 1840 opposite where the third segment meets the road (don't cross the road).

The fifth segment (1.74mi) heads east on County Road 1840 crossing the creek bridge before it heads south on the east side of Walker Creek. This is a winding segment up and down hill with fields, grasslands, and some woods. Deer, wild hogs, and armadillos can be seen in this area. This segment ends at County Road 1850.

The sixth segment (2.44mi) starts south from County Road 1850, goes east to circumnavigate a creek tributary, and then quickly finds Waurika Lake. The trail hits County Road 1860 and then heads due west across the Walker Creek Bridge on Waurika Lake.

The seventh segment (0.89mi) starts where the first segment ends at the west and south end of the Walker Creek Bridge. The two travel together for about a third of a mile. The seventh segment then splits off to the west and heads back along and then through a wooded area to the north end of the trailhead parking lot.
