Trail Start and End Details

The Trailway begins in downtown Mineral Wells, Texas, and continues to just northwest of Weatherford, Texas. There are four trailheads, including one in Lake Mineral Wells State Park.

Description and Tips

This trail follows a reclaimed railroad bed, with a flat grade and winding curves. Most of the trail surface is crushed limestone, with a section of asphalt around Mineral Wells. There are 16 bridges along the length of the trail, including a 500-foot bridge adorned with 104 Lone Stars. The Trailway is especially enjoyable in the spring and fall, as summers in Texas are hot! For a fun day trip, ride the trail from the state park trailhead toward Weatherford, then ride into downtown Weatherford for lunch (adds around 6 miles to the trip).
