Location: WAXAHACHIE CREEK PARK at Bardwell Lake, Ellis County, Texas only 30 minutes south of Dallas off I-45. GPS coordinates: N32º17.773' & W096º41.794' The Bardwell Lake Equestrian and multiuse trail was opened to the public on September 20, 2003, culminating a year of planning and hard work by a team of dedicated volunteers lead by Kathy Duke. Trail construction continues and should be completed in 2006. The trail is on a two thousand acre tract of land at the north end of Waxahachie Creek Park at Bardwell Lake. Waxahachie Creek Park is 7/10 of a mile west of the Bardwell Lake Bridge on Highway 34 east of Bardwell and west of Ennis. Currently, there are over 26 miles of trails for horseback riding, bicycling, or hiking. The trailhead is located near the northernmost boat ramp at Waxahachie Creek Park. The system features one broad flat main trail traversing the area with numerous loops into the surrounding upland wooded thickets, meadows, croplands, and bottomland hardwood forest along Waxahachie Creek. These trails are designated with color coded signs and international symbols. One unique feature is a white arrow prominently displayed that marks the return trail for new users who might become disoriented. Trail head features include: informational bulletin board; a secure trailer length parking lot with hitching posts; Equestrian campsites with 30amp electrical service, water hook ups, and horse barn with 2 designated stalls per site; and trail maps available at the gate house. Additional improvements such as picnic tables along the trail and additional barn stalls that will be available on a first come first serve basis are planned. TRAIL USERS BE ADVISED THAT THE TRAIL IS LOCATED WITHIN A HUNTING AREA; HUNTERS ARE ALLOWED TO UTILIZE THE AREA FOR HUNTING GAME FROM September 01 to March 31 AS PUBLISHED IN THE TEXAS PARKS & WILDLIFE OUTDOOR ANNUAL. Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) awarded the Bardwell Trail Project a grant in 2003, which has help with the cost of trail head improvements and trail extensions over the past three years. As we complete the construction phase and moneys provided through TPWD Trail Grant we will be looking to our community and the trail users for assistance in the on going upkeep and operation of The Bardwell Multiuse Trail. If you are interested in Making a Difference and leaving a legacy of service please contact Park Ranger Dorie Nicholson via email: or by telephone: 972-875-5711. You can also join us for one of our monthly trail workdays and potluck suppers. We meet at 8am on the 3rd Saturday of each month at the trail head in Waxahachie Creek Park. All volunteers should bring plenty of water and a snack. We usually work until 1pm and then regroup for supper, bring something to grill for your self and a side dish to share. Trail work is outdoors and physical but the intrinsic rewards are tremendous. Large groups should register in advance but all are welcome to join us. We also need monetary donations to keep this project operating. If you would like to make a donation, please mail checks or money orders to: TETRA/Bardwell Trail Project c/o Guaranty Bank 605 West Ennis Avenue Ennis, Texas 75119
