Driving Directions

At Cameron Park W of Herring Ave. along S shore of Lake Brazos and the Bosque R.


Cameron Park features one of the most recognized natural trail systems in Texas. In an area known for farmland, the trails zig zag and climb 100-foot bluffs that overlook the Brazos and Bosque Rivers. The daring can rip down trails like Vortex and Root Canal, or for a slower pace, park visitors can stroll along the River Trail and bamboo filled California 56. With handcrafted bridges, varying terrain and breathtaking views, the trails provide countless outdoor adventures. The local ecosystem is on display with wildlife and native vegetation throughout the park. Home to mountain bike races, community events and weekly walks, the Cameron Park Trails give people of all ages a place to experience the Great Outdoors.
