It was actually a rainy day but walking under the trees you couldn't feel the rain so much. The trail wasn't hard but still be sure to watch your steps. It was beautiful to be surrounded by the trees and a few streams.

We walked this trail for the first time in the dead of winter. Despite being cold out and the greenery being dead, it was great! The trail is long and has plenty to see. We go back every few weeks!

I went down the trail with my children, and we had a good time. At the beginning of the trail there is sufficient parking space, and the trail is easy to walk.

There's not much challenge to the trail, it's mostly flat and only a few miles long. It gets washed out after heavy rain so be very careful on a bike. It follows a muddy little creek.

Meandering through the heart of Nacogdoches and following the Lanana Creek this trail has a special place in my heart. Always nice to get away from the city and back to nature right in the middle of town.

My wife and I love to walk especially in a peaceful, natural setting. A wide variety of trees (pines and hardwoods) mixed with some of the sweetest smelling flowering shrubs I have even smelled made this a very enjoyable trek. The creek changes from a...More

Stretches miles, more than 80% shaded, some narrow paths, but mostly very wide for four people to walk shoulder-to-shoulder. Easy and relaxing. Stop and watch the creek, there's a few perfect places to read a book, a few benches every other mile or so, some...More

This is a very nice and well maintained trail running through the heart of Nacogdoches. I can get muddy during the wetter months. One of the better places to enjoy the outdoor in town.

Does this stream have any fish in it, if so can people fish there?

The stream is very shallow and I didn't see any fish.

I have heard of several different activities allowed on the Lanana Creek Trail. I have even been advised by wardens that fishing is allowed in certain areas of the creek. My interest is in rock collecting and fossil collecting. I was wondering if such would be allowed along the creek bed and banks or not. Thanks.

I'm not certain, but the employees of the Visitor's Center should be able to tell you for sure.

How 'cultivated' is Lanana Trail? I'm an avid outdoors person who enjoys camping and all that goes with it. Visiting for SFASU Parent's Weekend, I didn't have time this trip, but in future trips I plan to visit as many of the outdoors trails, parks and nature I can.
