Bardwell Lake Equestrian Trail The Bardwell Lake Equestrian and multiuse 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 8 miles of trails for horseback riding, hiking, or bicycling. 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. Other features include a secure trailer length parking lot inside the park, trailhead with bulletin board and maps, entrance gates, and hitching posts. Additional improvements 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 01 September to 31 March AS PUBLISHED IN THE TEXAS PARKS & WILDLIFE OUTDOOR ANNUAL.

Trails extend over flat grasslands, wooded hillsides and ravines, and along the scenic banks of Waxahachie Creek.
